The regulatory authority has revised various fees and charges, and these changes will take effect from 1 July 2021. There is a slight increase in the registration fees, but the registration charges remain the same (Table 1 below).

The tables below have the revised values in fee structure.

The new fee structure will drive manufacturers and importers to be more diligent in determining their introduction values since the Australian chemical regulatory body ‘NICNAS’ four-tier system has been replaced with an eight-tier one (see table 1). This is an effort made by AICIS towards better monitoring and enforcement of post-market chemical activities and regulation.
