China trade disruptions

The Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment will continue to provide certification for goods that meet the requirements of the Export Control Act.

Exporters/export registered establishments are advised that some recent shipments have been delayed on entry into China, leading to commercial losses.

While the department will continue to facilitate market access and seek to ensure importing country requirements are up to date and accurate, the department encourages exporters to fully consider their own risk and potential losses.
Exporters should ensure that they have independently confirmed relevant importing country requirements.
Exporters are urged to seek advice from importers on potential for disruption to the clearance of their shipment.
