What information will we publish about your internationally assessed introduction?
If you're introducing a chemical in the reported category and your introduction is internationally assessed, you can apply for protection of the chemical's name and end use as confidential business information.
We consider internationally assessed reported introductions to potentially be of higher risk and therefore publish the following information on our website after you submit your pre-introduction report:
- chemical name
- end use
- name of international assessment body
If you do not want us to publish the chemical name and/or end use, you must apply to protect this information as confidential business information (CBI).
If we approve protection of your CBI, we'll publish:
- an AICIS approved chemical name (AACN) instead of the chemical's proper name
- a generalised end use instead of a specific end use
- the name of the international assessment body
Note: you cannot apply for CBI protection of the international assessment body — we always publish this information.
