Reforms update — change to exempted introductions category due to Industrial Chemicals Bill amendment

The amended Industrial Chemicals Bill 2017 (IC Bill) requires introducers to tell AICIS about chemicals introduced under the exempted category. This is a new requirement, consisting of a once-off declaration at the end of the registration year in which each chemical is first introduced in this category. The amended IC Bill allows for the details of these declarations to be set out in the Rules. The Rules will describe the information to be included in the declarations, as well as the exempted introductions that will not require this once-off declaration. These details are yet to be developed and we will consult with stakeholders before they become part of the Rules.
