Secondary notifications

AICIS logo - new scheme starting on 1 July 2020 that replaces NICNAS

Secondary notification obligations under NICNAS will become specific information requirements under AICIS.

Under AICIS, a specific information requirement is defined as an obligation that any introducer of an industrial chemical has to provide us with particular information about a chemical. We'll have more guidance about specific information requirements as we head towards the new scheme.

Part 9 of the Transitional Rules has details about secondary notifications that are started by NICNAS and are then completed by AICIS.
