Please find downloadable a Proforma Letter for a  Contact Manager for Confidential for Listed Introduction Chemicals on the AIIC – Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals. A Proforma Letter to respond to this request for the Products Identified with Confidential Ingredients is being prepared (as at 8 Aug 2022).

Note: Most of these Confidential Listed Chemicals do not contribute a GHS Health or Environmental Hazard to the final product (as this is why they can be confidential). It would be a better use of resources to focus these requests on the Confidential Chemicals do contribute a low GHS hazard to a product (so do not need to be identified); and there are additional questions that limit the scope of what has to be provided and maintained (with a yearly sign off each November), such as “Does the chemical contain one or more of the identified potentially hazardous chemical structures” which may lead to a future hazard classification.

Australian importing Businesses now have further Regulatory Information to request.

As well as the existing CAS-ON-AIIC statement for all ingredients in SDSs or separately supplied; under the AICIS Regulations from July 2020 an importing AU Business requires a Contact Manager at their O’Seas Manufacturer / Supplier. This Contact Manager will need to be able to provide to AICIS, information in respect to the Confidential Listed Introduction Chemicals in the product(s) nominated.

O’Seas Manufacturers / Suppliers are requested to advise the name and contact details of a manager with the authority to provide the AICIS Authority with Confidential Information (if required by AICIS). This information includes:

– Confidential ingredient(s) Chemical Name(s),

– Confidential CAS No.(s) and

Note: Confidential percentage(s) in your product(s) are not specified in the Act or Rules to be provided.

The above information must be able to be provided to the AICIS Authority within a 40 working day period (normally 8 weeks), should the AICIS Authority require it.

The importing AU Business  will pass this Contact Manager information onto the AICIS Authority only if requested. (Please Note: The importing AU Business  will NOT receive your Confidential Information when you provide it to AICIS).


If your business doesn’t hold the Confidential Chemical Information requested, please forward our request onto your Manufacturer/Supplier, and alert “insert AU Business Name” that this has occurred. Then forward the contact details of the Contact Manager with the Authority, when this is provided to you.
