Manual of Importing Country Requirements

 

This website sets out the requirements that exporters and the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (Department) must meet for products and commodities to be accepted for import into specific overseas countries. Micor is updated when there is a change to an importing country's requirements.

Exporters and Departmental staff can use Micor to find out importing country requirements. In addition to complying with importing country requirements, exporters must also comply with the requirements of the Export Control Act and associated Orders when exporting commodities from Australia.

For answers to frequently asked questions visit FAQ or if you require further information, contact the Micor Administrator or your nearest regional office of the Department.

Certification alert (updated 16 October 2020)

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (H7N7) and Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza (H5N2) have been confirmed on farms in Victoria in July and August 2020. As a result, the Department is unable to issue export certification for some poultry and ratite meat, meat products, rendered meals, pet food, eggs and egg products where the certification contains freedom from avian influenza declarations. In addition, some trading partners have imposed temporary suspensions on the import of these products from Victoria or all of Australia.

The Department is issuing regular Market Access Advices (MAAs) to advise exporters of relevant trade developments and the status of export certification. Exporters are advised to refer to the latest MAA (MAA2074, issued on 16 October 2020) for the most up-to-date information.

Exporters are also advised to confirm with their importer or the importing country's relevant authority that they meet the importing country requirements.

For all enquiries or to obtain a copy of the latest Market Access Advice, please email exportstandards@awe.gov.au

Exporters are reminded that it is an offence to provide false or misleading information to the Australian Government.
