All care is taken to ensure the accuracy of this information. Each user waives and releases the Commonwealth of Australia to the full extent permitted by the law from all liability for loss or damage arising from the use of, or reliance on, information regarding treatments or treatment providers made available through this system, whether or not caused by any negligence on the part of the Commonwealth of Australia or its agents.

The Commonwealth of Australia is not liable for loss or damage, including negligent acts or omissions, caused by a treatment or treatment provider.
When planning to import goods into Australia clients are advised to check AQIS’s ICON database. Conditions outlined in ICON or on an Import Permit, may state that the goods intended to be imported into Australia require a specific quarantine treatment. In some cases the treatment may be performed offshore (prior to the goods being exported to Australia), however some treatments may only be performed in Australia.
AQIS conducts documentation checks to confirm all offshore treatment certificates meet minimum requirements as outlined in the AQIS publication ‘Cargo Containers - Quarantine Aspects and Procedures’. In addition, for some types of treatments, AQIS only accepts treatment certificates from approved offshore treatment providers.
