Australia | New Authorization Requirements for Chemical Importers and Exporters of decaBDE and PFOA
Starting from 21 July 2023, Australian importers and exporters of certain chemicals, namely decabromodiphenyl ether (decaBDE), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), and its salts, as well as PFOA-related compounds, must obtain annual authorization from the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS). However, this requirement does not apply if these chemicals are introduced solely for research or analysis at volumes of 100 kg or less in an AICIS registration year. The specific chemical names, CAS numbers, and other related information for these substances are provided in the document. Additionally, there are exceptions for certain fluorinated chemicals and fluorinated derivatives that do not require annual import or export authorization from AICIS.
