Trade Compliance

The ECA has launched the ‘Trade Compliance’ page as a tool for businesses to access the latest updates from the World Trade Organisation, Department of Immigration and Border Protection, Department of Agriculture and Water Resources and other agencies. The ECA hopes to help businesses navigate regulatory developments and promote compliance across the supply chain.

Given the complex and rapidly changing nature of the global economy, it is imperative that industry remain informed of regulatory changes affecting Australian exporters. A failure to comply with regulations may result in sanctions such as infringement notices and other penalties.

The ECA will update exporters on legislative changes affecting product requirements and standards, changes to biosecurity standards, anti-dumping and countervailing measures, customs, export controls and sanctions.

  • June 2017 edition of the goods compliance update—see here
  • Customs Duty Rate Changes for 1 April 2017: Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement—see here
