Who does this notice affect?
Importers of products eligible for the Compliance-Based Inspection Scheme (CBIS). For a list of eligible products, see the CBIS web page.
What has changed?
The department would like to advise clients of information that will assist in correctly lodging consignments to participate in the CBIS.
What do I need to do?
Importers and brokers should continue to lodge documentation to the department as per their current practice. When a consignment is lodged in the Integrated Cargo System (ICS), brokers must ensure it is lodged in line mode. Any consignments lodged in container mode are ineligible for the CBIS. Consignments of full container loads (FCL) of a single commodity can still be lodged in line mode and therefore eligible for the CBIS.
More information is available on the CBIS web page.
For further information please email Plant Import Operations (please include ‘Tier 2 – CBIS’ in the subject heading) or phone 1800 900 090.
