Australia AICIS Publishes Reminder for Registration and Renewals

In mid-July 2020, the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) published a fact sheet on its website, reminding businesses to renew registration for the 2020-21 year.

According to the fact sheet, the AICIS registration year lasts from September 1 to August 31 of next year, and all businesses which introduce industrial chemicals, or certain products that release industrial chemicals, into Australia for commercial purposes must register with the AICIS.

As the AICIS replaced the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) starting on July 1 this year, businesses’ registration with the NICNAS for the 2019-20 year has automatically transitioned to AICIS, but will expire on August 31. Therefore, for businesses which wish to continue introducing industrial chemicals into the country after the expiry date, they must renew the registration with the AICIS by September 1. 

Foreign companies can also register with the AICIS as long as they have an Australian Registered Business Number (ARBN). They can visit the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) website [1] to find more information and apply for an ARBN. If any company is unable to obtain one, it will have to find an Australian agent or distributor.

Businesses are required to register or renew registration at AICIS Business Services [2]. The fact sheet also involves some other aspects of AICIS registration, including registration levels and corresponding charges. You can find step-by-step instructions on the page “How to Register” [3].
