Rules on importing and manufacturing the chemicals in e-cigarette liquids

Your substances


Chemicals used in e-cigarette liquids that do not contain nicotine (or are not marketed as having a therapeutic use, such as being an aid to smoking cessation) are regulated as industrial chemicals in Australia. The import or manufacture (introduction) of these chemicals is subject to the same requirements as any other industrial chemical.

Anyone who introduces an industrial chemical into Australia must register with us. If the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (the Inventory) lists a chemical used in an e-cigarette liquid, then we generally don't need to assess the chemical before it is introduced into Australia. However, if the chemical is not on the Inventory, or the Inventory lists it with specific conditions, we generally must assess it before it can be introduced.
