Changes provide information about amendments to import conditions. Keep informed of changes by following individual import cases.

Raw seed for human consumption

Effective from 19 January 2021

All Juglans species have been removed from the ‘Raw seed for human consumption’ case. This means that Juglans imported for human consumption will need to meet the import conditions outlined in the ‘Raw nuts for human consumption’ case.

This change was made as the raw nut import conditions are considered to be appropriate to manage the biosecurity risks associated with these species.
