Determining import requirements

It's often difficult for importers of products to determine the standards or regulatory requirements for products that they wish to import into Australia and New Zealand.

JAS-ANZ is not an information resource for importers.  There are several websites which contain information on requirements that apply to imported products (such as whether they need to be certified as meeting particular standards).  In Australia overview information on importing can be obtained from www.australia.gov.au.  In New Zealand overview information on importing can be obtained from www.business.govt.nz.

There may also be regulations relating to your product that require particular certifications.  Some informative sites for researching these requirements include:

Product Safety Australia (ACC site) https://www.productsafety.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/970225.  This page contains links to State and Territory regulations relating to product safety.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration site https://www.tga.gov.au/regulation-basics

Department of Agriculture and Water Resources site http://agriculture.gov.au/
