Try our new Inventory search (beta)

We invite you to try our new search experience for the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals (Inventory).


  • Table view - up to 50 results are displayed per page with each 'Inventory terms of listing' shown in columns

  • Column sorting - sort any column in ascending or descending order (one column at a time only)

  • Broader search - you can now also search other Inventory fields such as molecular formula, 'defined scope of assessment', 'conditions of introduction and use' and 'specific information requirements'

  • 'Begins with' search - if you type in a few characters, it will find any matches beginning with those characters

  • Wildcard search - this advanced search lets you use asterisks (*) to find words that start with or end with particular characters, or contain a set of characters

  • More targeted results for chemical name searches - if you enter the exact CAS name of a chemical that's on the Inventory, you will get a single result

  • 'Download the Inventory' button - a quick link to download a snapshot of the Inventory (important: the downloadable version of the Inventory is updated around twice per year, so it's not current and is not the official complete Inventory)

Chemical record number or 'CR No.' is a unique number that AICIS assigns to each listing on the Inventory. You need to click the 'CR No.' link to see the chemical's Inventory listing details.
