Fragrance distributor fined $37,560 for unlawful imports

AICIS has issued 2 infringement notices totalling $37,560 to an Australian fragrance, toiletries, and cleaning products importer. 

These infringement notices (a total of 120 penalty points) were issued because the business is alleged to have:

  • imported industrial chemicals from the US without holding an AICIS registration, which contravenes section 13 of the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 (the IC Act)
  • failed to submit an annual declaration required under section 99 of the IC Act.

All importers and manufacturers (introducers) of industrial chemicals must be registered with AICIS and submit an annual declaration every year.
