What are my registration obligations?

Tier 1 level Registrants

If you are registered at the Tier 1 level, you do not have to submit a final statement of introduction; however, if it turns out that if you introduced $500,000 or more, you will have to upgrade your registration and pay the registration charge of $1141 (Tier 2 level) or $8500 (Tier 3 level). Note that a registration fee of $381 is also applicable

Tier 2 level Registrant

If you are registered at the Tier 2 level, you are required to:

  • Submit a final statement of introduction to NICNAS after the registration year has ended, and;

  • Keep for five years all records relating to industrial chemicals imported and/or manufactured in that year that are necessary to calculate whether the registration charge is payable, and any amount of registration charge payable.

Registered importers at Tier 2 must keep all relevant commercial documents (within the meaning of s240 of the Customs Act 1901) relating to the industrial chemical(s) for at least five years after the industrial chemical is imported into Australia. This includes commercial documents that came into the person's possession or control before, on, and after the entry of the industrial chemical(s) into Australia

Tier 3 level Registrants

If you are registered at the Tier 3 level, the above requirements in relation to the final statement do not apply to you as you are entitled to unlimited introductions.
