Do I need to register my business?

Under the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 (ICNA Act), you must register with NICNAS before you import and/or manufacture relevant industrial chemicals, or products containing relevant industrial chemicals, for commercial purposes.

If you are already importing or manufacturing and you have not registered your business with NICNAS, read about self-reporting of non-compliance and contact us immediately.
