Webinar: AICIS proposed changes to categorisation, reporting and record keeping

  • 24 Oct 2023
  • 8:00 PM
  • Virtual Meeting


Registration is closed

Adrian Thomas will present a webinar on the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) proposed changes to categorisation, reporting and record keeping with an emphasis on industrial chemicals for surface coatings. It is expected to be of interest to SCAA and SCANZ members, in particular industrial chemical raw material suppliers and surface coatings manufacturers.

Special thanks to SCAA for organising this.

AICIS has explored possible solutions to address stakeholder advice that certain requirements of the Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules are challenging to comply with. AICIS has also identified aspects of the General Rules that they think should be strengthened to ensure protection of human health and the environment or clarify the intent of certain requirements.  

AICIS is proposing a suite of regulatory proposals relating to categorisation, reporting and record-keeping obligations which cover the following topics: 

  1. Listed, exempted and reported introductions - reporting and record keeping obligations (including replacement of written undertakings); 
  2. Annual declaration changes for exempted introductions; 
  3. List of chemicals with high hazards for categorisation; 
  4. Options for showing the absence of hazards in categorisation; 
  5. Fluorinated chemicals; 
  6. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs); 
  7. Chemicals containing hazardous elements added to human health hazard band C; 
  8. Controlled introduction and use of chemicals.  
  • The second webinar to be held on 17 October is targeted at small to large importers and manufacturers. 
  • The third webinar to be held on 19 October is targeted at Cosmetics importers and manufacturers.  

AICIS held a first overview webinar on 21 September, which is downloadable from their website.  

AICIS has announced that they will present 2 further webinars in October providing more details with examples of what the proposed changes would mean in practice: 

The process of consultation regarding these proposed changes is open for comments on the AICIS website until 9 November.
