AICIS publishes guidelines on “natural” and “organic”

Is my ingredient natural? This is often a difficult question to answer. This guideline explains the AICIS position on “natural” including what extraction processes cause a chemical change. If all the ingredients in your product meet AICIS’ legal definition of a naturally occurring chemical (and you don’t introduce any other industrial chemicals), then you do not need to register with AICIS.    Source: Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS)

AICIS has identified chemicals on the Australian Inventory that it believes are not being manufactured, imported or used in Australia for commercial purposes. If you are using one of the chemicals you can contact AICIS before 17th December.    Source: AICIS general information, and list of chemicals
