  • Restricted Products


[See also below: Health and Safety and Liability Information]

Certain products are restricted in their use (and therefore the sale of), so various permits or licenses may be required to purchase these products. Whilst the majority of these products are regulated federally, different requirements and administrative authorities may apply or vary from state to state. If you are in any doubt please contact the relevant local authority or your preferred distributor.

Bonded Alcohol (Ethanol)

Various grades of Ethanol are restricted and end-users require a Australian Taxation Office (ATO) permit to purchase. These permits are for a specific period of time and a maximum annual usage applies. Please note that the permit must specify your distributor as the supplier and not Chem-Supply.

End User Declarations (EUD)

Chemicals that are either classified as ‘drug precursors’ or can be used to manufacture illicit drugs will require an End User Declaration to be completed and approved prior to the supply of these chemicals. Refer to Drug Task Force section of your local police department for further information.

Schedule 7 Dangerous Poisons

The Standard for the uniform scheduling of drugs and poisons (SUSDP) classifies products according to their application and/or level of danger. Schedule 7 Dangerous Poisons are substances with a high potential for causing harm at low exposure and which require special precautions during manufacture, handling or use. Special regulations restricting their availability, possession, storage and use may apply. Most Schedule 7 Dangerous Poisons only require that sales are made to authorised institutions or companies only, however high risk substances such as Cyanides or Arsenic compounds require the end-user to hold a specific permit or authorisation to purchase. Any enquires should be directed to the National Drugs and Poisons Schedule Committee in Canberra or your local government health authority.

Ozone Depleters

The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has classified various chlorinated hydrocarbons and fluorinated hydrocarbons as Ozone Depleters. Many of these substances can no longer be imported into Australia except in small quantities for approved application and/or research. As a result, substances such as 1,1,1-Trichloroethane are only available while stocks last. As permit requirements vary from state to state, please contact the local office of the EPA for clarification if a permit is required in your state or territory.

Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS)

Certain substances derived from meat products may be subject to AQIS regulations depending on the country of origin. The head office of AQIS in Canberra controls these regulations. For further information contact the AQIS office in Canberra or visit their web-site on http://www.agriculture.gov.au/ba/about.

Chemical Warfare Agents

The Department of Foreign Affairs monitors the importation and sale of chemicals that could be used in chemical warfare. The information on the sale of these products must be supplied on request to the Department of Foreign Affairs who may then contact the end-user to clarify the chemical(s) application or use.
