Re-export regime set to launch in Australia

According to a customer advisory issued by Depth Logistics, The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) in Australia has announced a re-export regime coming into force under the Biosecurity Act 2015.

From April 9, 2018, the department will no longer facilitate the clearance of conditionally non-prohibited goods that arrive without the required import permit.

Goods that require a permit, but arrive without one, including where an application is currently under consideration, will be directed for export from Australian territory or required to be destroyed in an approved manner. The importer must have an approved import permit in hand prior to the cargo arriving or re-export orders will be made by the department.

According to the DAWR, import permits have important conditions that must be observed before the cargo arrives in order to minimise biosecurity risks for Australia.

The import permit assessment and approval process, as set out in the Biosecurity Act 2015, provides the department with control over the import of certain biosecurity risk goods through the application of conditions based on technical, scientific, administrative requirements, and the fitness and propriety of the importer and their associates.
