Case studies — guides to categorising chemicals

Step by step 'how to' categorise chemicals under the new scheme

View our case studies

To help people understand how the proposed categorisation process for new industrial chemicals will work under the new Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS), we have put together a range of case studies.

The case studies cover typical scenarios for introducing cosmetic and non-cosmetic new chemicals. They show how introducers would categorise chemicals as exempted or reported under the new scheme.

What’s in the case studies

  • Checklists of the information you will need for categorisation
  • Summary of  the steps needed to categorise the chemical introduction
  • Walk through each steps 1-6, including:
    • determining the indicative risk for human health and environment
    • determining the introduction category
  • Finally, we explain what happens next and give a brief comparison for the same introduction under the current legislation.
