DAFF (formerly Quarantine) have recently amended the packing declaration requirements for all seafreight, FCL and LCL imports into Australia.

Please download the new blank declaration from our web site and make sure you provide your supplier with the correct form for future shipments.

Failure to provide the correct declaration may result in delays and additional fees on arrival of your shipment in Australia.

The DAFF Industry Notice outlining these changes can be viewed for further clarification.

Please be sure to advise your suppliers that the packing question referred to in these notices is referring to solid timber packaging, however, solid timer packaging does not include plywood, fibre board and plywood/veneer, these are low risk packaging and do not need to be declared as timber packaging for the purposes of this declaration.
