Scene 1: What is an annual declaration?
Scene 2: This is a declaration you make to confirm that the industrial chemicals you imported or manufactured during the previous registration year were authorised under the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019. It's separate to registration, and not part of the introduction value or your registration level.
Scene 3: If you're registered with us and you introduced industrial chemicals or products containing industrial chemicals (like cosmetics, paints, inks and plastics) you'll need to submit an annual declaration.
Scene 4: You can submit your annual declaration from 1 August. The due date to submit it is 30 November after the end of each registration year.
