Returning Australian products Alerts Changes

Effective 3 September 2020 to present

This case describes the requirements for the importation of goods returning to Australia.

This case also covers goods that have been shipped between two Australian ports but have exited and then re-entered Australian territory en route (e.g. trans-shipped goods). The goods must not have been altered while offshore. If any growing, processing or manufacturing occurs offshore that changes the nature of the product, the goods will then be considered a ‘new product’ rather than of Australian origin and you must search BICON to determine the conditions that apply.
