This page helps you to understand the IChEMS regulatory scheduling decision and provides information to support the management of industrial chemicals in line with IChEMS.
This page is for information only. For details on your legal obligations, look at the relevant regulator and the official version of the Industrial Chemicals Environmental Management (Register) Instrument 2022 (IChEMS Register).
Chemical use and management
This chemical is listed in Schedule 3 of the IChEMS Register. Schedule 3 regulates chemicals that have the potential to cause harm.
Find out more about IChEMS Scheduling.
Businesses handling industrial chemicals must comply with the IChEMS Minimum Standards. These standards align with existing environment, health, safety, and duty of care obligations. They were designed for varying business needs and local requirements. This means that your business will likely already meet all or most of the standards.
You must also follow any guidance and requirements set by regulators for managing environmental risks. More information is available from your Commonwealth, state, or territory environmental regulator.
This chemical was scheduled based on information in an assessment statement published by the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS). The use patterns assessed by AICIS were:
- cosmetic and household products
- air fresheners (sprays and aerosols)
- electrical air fresheners
- fine fragrances.
