Two more chemicals are ineligible for reported (introductions of 10 kg or less) category 

We have updated Step 3 of the ‘Guide to categorising your chemical importation and manufacture’ (Categorisation Guide) following the removal of Benzene, hexachloro- (HCB), CAS no. 118-74-1 and Benzene, 1,2,3,4,5-pentachloro- (PeCB), CAS no. 608-93-5 from the AICIS Inventory on 8 February 2023. 

This means that low volume introductions of these chemicals (up to 10 kg in an AICIS registration year) are not eligible for the reported category type called ‘introduction of 10 kg or less’. We have added the name and CAS numbers of these chemicals in Step 3.1 of Categorisation Guide and the corresponding decision tool. 

You can see changes to the Categorisation Guide by viewing the version history
