- All machinery imported into Australia must be free from contamination such as seeds, soil, plant and animal materials
- The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment has the power to export contaminated machinery from Australia at the importer’s or owner’s expense
- Most used imported machinery requires an import permit issued by the department prior to arrival
