Goods covered by this case contain or consist of ingredients of plant, microbial or animal (excluding live animals) origin.

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.
