How to notify a chemical

If your chemical is not on the Inventory and you are not eligible for an exemption or permit, you must apply for an assessment certificate for your chemical before importing or manufacturing your chemical (introduction).

Your chemical will NOT be listed on our chemical Inventory for the 5 year term of your assessment certificate (unless you apply for early public listing on the Inventory).
