Australia’s AICIS and Animal Testing Ban Commenced on July 1, 2020

Ingredient toxicological safety data derived from animal testing on or after July 1, 2020, is no longer valid in applications to introduce new cosmetic ingredients in Australia.

With the entry into force of the Australian Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 on July 1, the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) officially replaced the previous National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) as the new national regulator of the importation and manufacture of industrial chemicals. The ban on the use of new animal test data for chemicals solely used in cosmetics also took effect on the same day, to bring Australia into the line with the EU and other countries introducing an animal testing ban on new cosmetic ingredients [1].
