What has changed?
The department is incorporating a number of fresh produce commodities onto the Compliance-based Intervention Scheme (CBIS). This change is scheduled to take effect on the 9 August 2019.
The change may require you to lodge some fresh produce commodities differently in the Integrated Cargo System (ICS), with an AQIS Commodity Code (ACC). Where an ACC code is required, this will be specified in the relevant BICON case.
More information about the new commodities, including a list of ACC codes will be published on the departments CBIS webpage.
