A separate entity will be selected for each pilot.</p> <p>The pilots will act as proof of concepts and if successful will lead to more permanent arrangements that will reduce the regulatory burden for these and other importers. Faster clearance of imported cargo will also have downstream benefits for agricultural and other businesses, and free up departmental officers to concentrate on areas of higher risk, non-compliance, and business improvement.</p> <p>The pilots will also inform joint work with the Australian Border Force towards an improved cargo intervention model as part of the Government's Simplified Trade System reform agenda.</p> <h2>Expressions of interest (EOI) now being sought</h2> <p>Interested importers must submit their EOI by <strong>COB Friday 28 May 2021</strong>.</p> <p>Information on how to apply can be found at <a href="https://www.awe.gov.au/industry-partners">www.awe.gov.au/industry-partners</a></p> <p>Successful applicants will work with the department to design and deliver the individual pilots.
