Many products with ingredients (chemicals) derived from natural sources such as plants and minerals that are marketed or labelled as ‘natural’, ‘organic’ or ‘pure’ do NOT meet the legal definition of a naturally-occurring chemical. This is usually because of the process used to extract the chemical from its source.
If a chemical in your product does not meet the naturally-occurring chemical definition, it is a relevant industrial chemical. You need to register with AICIS if you want to manufacture and/or import the industrial chemical or a product containing the industrial chemical, for commercial purposes. You also must check that each ingredient in your product is on the Inventory.
