Who does this notice affect?
Amendments to the Biosecurity (Conditionally Non-Prohibited Goods) Determination 2021 have been made as part of Australia’s response to Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD).
If you intend to import personal consignments (10kg limit, unless otherwise specified) of the meat products listed below, into Australian territory, you must comply with the new import requirements.
This notice does not affect commercial import conditions.
This notice does not affect import permit holders.
What is changing?
These amendments relate to the import of personal consignments of specified meat products and have been made to strengthen Australia’s current import requirements.
The amendments affect the following goods:
- Meat-based flavouring product
- Pâté and foie gras (1kg limit)
- Pork crackling and pork rind
- Meat floss
- Meat jerky and biltong (1kg limit)
- Retorted meat
Personal consignments of these goods derived from bovines (cows), ovines (sheep), caprines (goats), or porcines (pigs) may now only be imported if they are a commercially manufactured product of an FMD-free country.
Goods that do not meet these requirements may be destroyed.
