BICON houses the Australian Government's Biosecurity import conditions database for more than 20,000 plants, animals, minerals and biological products. It will help you to determine what import conditions exist and if an import permit is required. Please refer to the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources' Importing to Australia page for more information about BICON.
Search for the commodity you want to import. You can also search for your import by scientific name or tariff code. Refer to the BICON Help page for tips on searching.
Did you know you can keep up to date with import conditions by following a case in BICON? When you follow a case, you will be emailed when there are any changes to that case.
Please refer to the BICON Help Task Card ‘How do I use Case Options and Case details?’ for instructions on how to follow a case, to receive notifications and utilise the Case Options and Case details functions.
Further Instructional material can be found by selecting the Help tab, located in the top ribbon of your BICON web page.
