Chemintro is a secure online system which manages information for AICIS categorisations, assessments, reports, declarations, audits and more.

Business case

  • Manage business risk by eliminating human error from regulatory complexity
  • Save time and effort with automated categorisation - minutes versus hours or even days!
  • Support all AICIS obligations with information and document management
  • Gain competitive advantage with 'What if' volume/formulation testing

While information management and time saving are both important, business risk management is vital!

Manually categorising a chemical offers many opportunities for human error.

Human error can be eliminated by automating complexity. Chemintro is provably correct.

AICIS is obliged to revoke authorisation and thereby disrupt distribution in a case of under-categorisation or inadequate information/document management.

Chemintro produces a Memorandum of Understanding which explains to suppliers of critical information what the potential cost to local introducers might be if required information is not provided within the AICIS deadline!

There is also competitive advantage in testing other introduction scenarios. Chemintro can re-categorise instantly when volumes or formulations are adjusted. This could tip the balance between introducing a chemical or not! Top

Simple to use

Chemintro requires minimal human data entry for categorisation. Other necessary information is automatically located or calculated.

Chemintro design recognises that unnecessary data adds unnecessary costs.

The dual purpose is ease of use and minimising opportunities for human error. Top     

Simplicity caveat

There will always be complexity lurking in some introductions because chemistry is sometimes like that. If in doubt, we can refer you to competent consultants for expert assistance. Top
