Importers are responsible for ensuring that tyres are imported free from biosecurity risk material (BRM). If contamination is found by DAFF, remedial cleaning will be required. DAFF may direct the tyres to be exported from Australia if it determines the biosecurity risk is too great to allow cleaning in Australia.
This requirement applies to all imported new and used tyres, whether fitted to machinery or loose.
Information on specific tyres from the DAFF Import Conditions Database (ICON) are found below:
