If you didn't already know ...
The Industrial Chemicals Act (2019) puts the onus directly on you to declare how risky your chemical is.
Degrees of risk are ...
- Very low - Exempted - requires a Post-Introduction Declaration to AICIS
- Low - Reported (also Reported<=10Kg) - requires a Pre-Introduction Report to AICIS to approve introduction
- Medium to high - Assessed - requires a paid AICIS assessment prior to introduction
And of course you don't have to categorise nor even tell AICIS you are introducing it if your chemical is...
- Listed - already on the AICIS Inventory with standard or particular obligations or restrictions on Introduction
But, listed chemicals occasionally get re-evaluated. AICIS publishes changes and Chemintro keeps track of them. That means if your chemicals are in Chemintro you can subscribe for direct notification if any are involved.
Chemintro handles all this for you
