AICIS Annual declaration Authorized representative

The Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) has been implemented since July 1st 2020. Under this Scheme, introducers of chemicals have the obligation to submit an annual declaration. The first deadline of the annual declaration is November 30th, 2021.

All the industrial chemicals placed in Australia, regardless of their categories, are subject to submit an annual declaration to authority. The submission should be carried out via the online submission portal – AICIS Business Services. This annual declaration is a separate requirement from other reporting obligations.

This annual declaration covers industrial chemicals imported or manufactured during the previous registration year. The window for this Annual declaration will open between 1st August 2021 and 30th Nov 2021. The coverage period for this declaration is from 1 July 2020 to 31 August 2021.

The annual declaration should include:

  • your AICIS Business Registration number (starting with ‘NIC’)
  • the introduction categories for the chemicals you imported or manufactured during our registration year
  • a declaration that all of your introductions were authorised under sections 25 to 30 of the Industrial Chemicals Act (2019)

It is possible to view all of your annual declarations in the AICIS Business Services online portal.
