Egg product codes

When you are requesting an export permit using the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment’s Export Documentation System, you will need to include details of your product.

Use our code lists to make sure you are entering the correct:

  • product code
  • cut code.

Product codes are linked to the Australian Harmonised Export Commodity Codes (AHECC) by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, to classify internationally traded goods as they enter and leave the country. AHECCs identify goods that must be accompanied by an export permit before entering the wharf or airport and being cleared for export.

Product code list

Egg products are grouped into two categories in EXDOC:

  • whole eggs – product type code EGG
  • processed eggs – product type code EGP.

Cut code list

Egg cut codes are used to identify the type of processed egg product.

Check your egg cut code and description:
