Provide information on industrial uses of certain chemicals on the Inventory

The Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) starts on 1 July 2020. It will be governed by a new law, the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 (IC Act). The Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals (the new Inventory) will replace the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (the current Inventory). The IC Act mandates that the new Inventory must only contain industrial chemicals.

We have prepared a list of chemicals on the current Inventory that we believe do not have (and have not had) an industrial use. These are excluded use chemicals. We intend to remove them from the Inventory.
