NICNAS Requests Information on Industrial Uses of Certain Chemicals on the Inventory

The new scheme called the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) commences on 1 July 2020 and replaces the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS, which is the current Inventory). Only industrial chemicals will be retained on the AICIS. NICNAS proposes that over 1600 chemicals that are not considered industrial chemicals should be removed e.g. medicines, agricultural or veterinary chemicals and foods. These substances are classified as “excluded use” chemicals.   Source: Rationalising the chemical inventory  (Please see also: AICIS guidance )
