According to Notice II, the Australian Government revoked the CBI approval for the proper name of 1 industrial chemical in the AIIC. This industrial chemical is:




1,3-Benzenedicarboxylicacid, polymer with (2E)-2-butenedioic acid, 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediol,2-ethyl-2-(hydroxymethyl)-1,3-propanediol and hexanedioic acid,(octahydro-4,7-methano-1H-indenyl)methyl ester

The last update to the AIIC was made on October 25, 2022, click here to learn more.

Chemical substances that are listed in the AIIC can be introduced by any registered introducers (importers or manufactures). According to the Industrial Chemical Act 2019, introducers shall apply for registration before introducing an industrial chemical to Australia during a registration year (goes from September 1 to August 31). For chemicals not listed in AIIC, introducers shall apply to the Executive Director for an assessment certificate for the introduction of such industrial chemicals.
