Some NICNAS exemption provisions available until 31 August 2022
This means that if your introduction meets the criteria for one of the exemption provisions that existed under NICNAS, you are authorised to introduce the chemical under AICIS as a ‘reported introduction’ until 31 August 2022.
You must keep records to prove that your chemical introduction meets the relevant exemption provision criteria. We may ask for these records to confirm that the chemical introductions are authorised.
This arrangement applies to the following NICNAS exemptions:
- research and development (less than 100 kg)
- no unreasonable risk in cosmetics (less than 100 kg)
- no unreasonable risk in non-cosmetics (less than 100 kg) and
- non-hazardous in cosmetics (less than 1%)
You can keep introducing chemicals under NICNAS exemptions until 31 August 2022.
After 31 August 2022, you’ll need to categorise your introduction to make sure you’re compliant with AICIS. We’ll remind you as the date approaches.
