Export Registration Form (EX26)
The Department of Agriculture operates under the conditions and restrictions of the Export Control Act 1982. Certain goods are subject to the provisions under the Act and associated Regulations and Orders when they are prepared or processed for export.
As a general rule, the department only assists in the export of prescribed goods. Depending on what you want to export, the requirements you must meet will vary. The Act specifies that goods are 'prescribed' or 'non-prescribed'.
Prescribed goods include:
fish and fish products
plants and plant products
eggs and egg products
meat and meat products
animal food (frozen raw meat)
food labeled as organic
fresh fruit and vegetables
pharmaceuticals (raw animal material)
All other goods are classified as non-prescribed, and provisions may still apply if government to government certification is required.
Exporting non-prescribed goods
The department can assist clients with exporting non prescribed goods if the importing country requires department certification or documents; however fees are payable.
It is the responsibility of the exporter to obtain the importing country requirements. This information must then be provided to the department by the exporter.
For further information on exporting non-prescribed goods, contact the department in your state or territory.
