Import conditions define the biosecurity requirements which must be met for your import. Where import conditions have been developed, they will be listed below.
A Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry import permit is not required.
A declaration that the plant DNA and/or RNA was:
derived from healthy plants, not knowingly infected or contaminated with a pathogen, and
extracted using a standard laboratory procedure that lyses cells and removes proteins from the nucleic acid preparation.
Each consignment of goods must be packed in clean and new packaging.
In order to facilitate clearance, airfreight or mail shipments should have all documentation securely attached to the outside of the package, and clearly marked ‘Attention Quarantine’.
If the consignment meets all documentation requirements at the time of clearance, it may be released from biosecurity control.
Under the Biosecurity Charges Imposition (General) Regulation 2016 and Chapter 9, Part 2 of the Biosecurity Regulation 2016, fees are payable to the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry for all services. Detail on how the department applies fees and levies may be found in the Charging guidelines.
In addition to the conditions for the goods being imported, non-commodity concerns must be assessed including container cleanliness, packaging and destination concerns, and may be subject to inspection and treatment on arrival. Please refer to the Non-Commodity Cargo Clearance BICON case for further information.
