AICIS Issues Extra Guidance on Categorising Chemicals Used in Cosmetics

Just to remind readers, that on 1 July 2020 the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) was replaced by the new Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS). If you are planning to introduce industrial chemicals (and products that release industrial chemicals) for use in cosmetics, you might like to check out this extra guidance on categorising cosmetic introductions. It will give you tips to help you work out your introduction category. The first step to categorisation is to check if your chemical is on the Inventory. Otherwise, all introducers must work out if their introduction is exempted, reported or assessed.    Source: Cosmetic ingredient guidance
