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 to regulatory authorities regarding risk mitigation. Departmental staff administer the scheme, under the direction of the Director of AICIS, who is a statutory office-holder. The National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) was replaced by the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) on 1 July 2020 following the commencement of the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019.
