Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme
Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) is a statutory scheme that registers introducers of industrial chemicals, assesses industrial chemicals for their risks to human health and the environment and, where relevant, makes recommendations for mitigating identified risks to regulatory authorities. Departmental staff administer the scheme, under the direction of the Executive Director of AICIS, who is a statutory office-holder. AICIS replaced the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) on 1 July 2020 following the commencement of the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019.
