Other Terms:


The department will assess the application and on the basis of that assessment may decide to grant an import permit subject to any conditions deemed necessary for safe importation, use and disposal of those products.

You should ensure that an application is submitted for each product type and that the prescribed fee accompanies the import permit application.
