​Considerations prior to updating of establishment details (added 3 June 2021)

The following should be considered prior to updating establishment details:

  • When an establishment notifies the Department of an administrative change (that is, a change of occupier, company name, address, or in some instances product specific changes), the Department will amend the establishment record in the system.
  • The establishment's amended details will appear on applicable export documentation including health certification from the date that the Department amends the establishment record
  • When relevant changes are made to an establishment's details, the Department will advise trading partners that maintain establishment lists of the change of details; however, the Department is unable to guarantee a timeframe as to when trading partners will update the establishment's overseas listing details they maintain. This means that there may be a period in which export certification issued by the Department does not match the trading partner's official published listing, which may result in clearance issues at the port of entry.
  • Establishments should be aware that their ability to export to some countries may be impacted during this transition period and may include issues with goods in transit.
  • Exporters and manufacturers are encouraged to check that their establishment's details are recorded accurately where they appear on trading partners' lists and to contact the Department if errors are found.
