Guide to categorising your chemical importation and manufacture

From 1 July 2020, all industrial chemical importers and manufacturers must categorise their chemical importation or manufacture (introduction). This step by step guide takes you through the process of categorising your introduction.

Drawing on information in the IC Act, General Rules and the Industrial Chemicals Categorisation Guidelines we've put together this practical step-by-step guide with supporting self-guided decision tools to help you categorise your chemical introduction as exempted or reported or assessed.
