New Australian Import Quarantine Packing Declarations – effective 17th June 2017

As referenced in recent industry advice notices, the Department of Agriculture, Water & Resources has revised the currently acceptable Import Packing Declaration templates.
The new version will become mandatory from 17 June 2017.
A copy of the revised formats are accessible through the below link, and are now accepted as a valid Packing Declaration for all Import FCL & LCL consignments.
On this basis, we advise that the revised format is passed on to all relevant shippers and suppliers, and introduced with immediate effect.
We have already begun providing the majority of our overseas agents & offices with the new format documents, and will continue to do so when arranging future shipments, in an effort to phase this in well before the mandatory effective date.
Should you have any questions or concerns in relation to the new Packing Declaration format and its impact, please feel free to contact us on 1300 814 743 at any time, as we are more than happy to provide further assistance.
