Some NICNAS exemption provisions available until 31 August 2022
Under the transitional arrangements, some exemption provisions that existed under the ICNA Act (old law) will be available to introducers until 31 August 2022. Introductions made under this arrangement are taken to be AICIS ‘reported introductions’ under section 27 of the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 (current law).
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.
