Do you know the proper name of the industrial chemical? (CAS or IUPAC name)

You, or someone else, must provide the chemical's CAS name or IUPAC name. If you don't know the CAS or IUPAC name, we accept an INCI name under very limited circumstances.

Select Yes if you can provide the chemical's CAS name or IUPAC name, or an INCI name if it meets all 4 criteria described below.

Select No if someone else – such as your supplier or manufacturer – is going to provide the CAS name or IUPAC name, or an INCI name that meets all 4 criteria. Click Business look up and enter the AICIS business ID of your chemical data provider (starting with NIC) followed by the first and last name of your chemical data provider’s contact person. We will then email the contact person and ask them to provide this information directly to us.

If you don’t know the contact person’s name or AICIS business ID details, you must contact your chemical data provider as we cannot give you this information.
