We consider importing an industrial chemical into Australia or manufacturing an industrial chemical locally as ‘introducing’ a chemical. If you introduce industrial chemicals - or products that release industrial chemicals - for commercial purposes, you must register your business with us and pay a fee

You must register your business in any given registration year before you import or manufacture an industrial chemical. Our registration year is 1 September - 31 August.


We publish a list of registered businesses on our website.


Our fees have changed to make it fairer for everyone. Your registration fees and charges are based your previous registration year’s total importation or manufacture (introduction) value, and are paid when our registration year ends.
