US strawberries to require import permit

AU import restrictions on certain goods to change this month

Importers in Australia have been advised of the Biosecurity (Prohibited and Conditionally Non-Prohibited Goods) Determination 2016 (Goods Determination) which is currently under amendment. As a result, from 30 June 2017 certain commodities will have different import conditions. Once implemented, imported goods into Australia must comply with the new legislation and read this notice.

Commodities that will now require an import permit
From 30 June 2017 fresh strawberries from the United States of America will require an import permit prior to the goods being imported into Australia.

Commodities that will not require an import permit
From 30 June 2017 selected commodities will no longer require an import permit when the alternative conditions in the Goods Determination are met. This includes:
  • Fresh grapes for human consumption from China
  • Fresh mango for human consumption from Vietnam and all regions of India
  • Fresh apricots and interspecific stone fruit hybrids for human consumption from the United States of America
  • Fresh Agrocybe cylindracea mushrooms for human consumption from all countries
  • Dried Trametes versicolor mushrooms for human consumption from all countries
  • Frozen Cantharellus cibarius and Craterellus cornucopioides mushrooms for human consumption from all countries
All goods entering Australia must continue to meet the import conditions published in BICON.
