Offshore treatment of used vehicles - recognised providers
Check the Biosecurity Import Conditions system (BICON), and/or your import conditions (if applicable) to determine all import requirements prior to arrival in Australia. Ensure you confirm that offshore cleaning with pre-inspection is an acceptable option for your commodity.
Recognised providers clean used vehicles, both internally and externally, to remove contamination, prior to offshore pre-inspection.
Following cleaning, recognised providers undertake offshore pre-inspection to ensure contamination has been removed and the used vehicles are clean and free from biosecurity risks, prior to departure. Offshore pre-inspection does not preclude the need for onshore inspection on arrival in Australia.
To be recognised, offshore treatment providers must:
- have a current system recognised by the department and
- be assigned an Approved Entity Identifier (AEI) number by the department for each facility included in the system, and
- provide an endorsed manifest for each consignment of used vehicles.
The department currently accepts cleaning and pre-inspection certification for consignments of used vehicles from the following facilities and offshore cleaning and pre-inspection providers:
