Exposure Drafts of Customs Regulations 2015—2015 Submission to DIBP
Submission OverviewThe ECA would be grateful if Customs could advise on the nature of its planned "outreach" or "engagement" with the trading community in relation to the changes to be effected though the New Regulations. As Customs would be aware, the Current Regulations have been in place for a significant period of time and provide an important underlying set of provisions governing the operation of parties under the Customs Act 1901. Established practices, case law and knowledge have accrued over that period of time which may now be swept aside and disregarded with the implementation of the New Regulations. Notwithstanding that the intent of Customs is only benign, the changes will create some degree of uncertainty. Accordingly, the ECA is of the view that the provisions of the New Regulations should be the subject of extensive engagement with those affected (directly or indirectly) by the New Regulations.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
