AICS FAQs

What is AICS?

The Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS) is the legal device that distinguishes new industrial chemicals from existing industrial chemicals in Australia.

All chemicals on the AICS are defined as existing, while industrial chemicals not included in the AICS are defined as new industrial chemicals.

All chemicals must be notified and/or assessed by NICNAS before they can be introduced (by import or manufacture), unless exempt under the Act. There are approximately 38,000 chemicals on AICS.

AICS is not a product register. All ingredients in industrial chemical products must comply with NICNAS requirements.
