Are you an importer of food? New producer code regulations come into effect June 1st 2016
As a result of several virus outbreaks over the last few years, the Australian Government are tightening the requirement of all imported food products.
How will this affect me?
- All customs entries containing food will need to declare a producer code
- If there are multiple food items within one shipment each producer will have to be declared individually
- It will be importer's responsibility to find out who has actually produced or made each product in their shipment
