Have you introduced chemicals that are categorised as exempted? You may need to submit a post-introduction declaration

If you introduced certain types of chemicals that were categorised as exempted during the 2021-22 registration year, you must submit separate post-introduction declarations for these chemicals. 

These once-off declarations only apply after you introduce the following exempted introductions for the first time:

  • polymers of low concern (PLCs)
  • low-concern biopolymers
  • chemicals that you have categorised as very low risk for human health and the environment

You can submit your post-introduction declarations for the 2021-22 year from 1 August 2022.

Sign into your AICIS Business Services account from 1 August 2022 and go to the ‘Post-Introduction Declaration’ tile. For detailed instructions, see our page on post-introduction declarations for exempted introductions

Remember:

  • You must submit a separate post-introduction declaration for each chemical categorised as very low risk for human health and the environment that you introduce in a registration year.
  • You must submit a separate post-introduction declaration for the total number of PLCs that you introduce in a registration year and a separate declaration for the total number of low-concern biopolymers that you introduce in a registration year.

Important dates

  • You can submit your post-introduction declarations from 1 August 2022
  • The due date to submit them is 30 November 2022
  • Your post-introduction declarations cover the period 1 September 2021 to 31 August 2022.
