MICoR (fish) sets out the known importing country requirements, which differ from or are additional to Australian export conditions and which must be met in order to gain market access for fish and fish products to specific countries.
MICoR (fish) also sets out importing country documentation and certification requirements.
Seafood export establishments must be export-registered, and must conform to the Approved Arrangement requirements of the Export Control (Fish and Fish Product) Orders 2005.
Exporters should seek other sources of information on commercial specifications for fish and fish products imported into a particular country.
For additional information on exporting fish and fish products and the requirement for export registration, please go to the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources website at http://www.agriculture.gov.au/export/controlled-goods/fish. Here you will find a step-by-step guide to exporting fish and fish products from Australia.

Due to the August 2014 MICoR upgrade, some pages display the date of 'last update' as a date in July or August 2014. These dates were applied when the system was upgraded and therefore do not necessarily reflect the last date that the page was updated. The department is currently investigating whether this issue can be corrected. Exporters should not rely on this date to determine when changes to importing country requirements have occurred. The department encourages all exporters to contact officials of country of import, either through the importer or directly, to confirm that their product meets the current importing country requirements.
