Quarantine Requirements of Importing Furniture to Australia
Australia has some of the strictest quarantine requirements and regulations in the world, designed to protect its natural resources, agricultural industries and wildlife ecosystem from biosecurity risks. As furniture importers Brisbane and Gold Coast it is imperative to understand these quarantine requirements prior to importing furniture into Australia. Depending on the origin country and the materials used in the manufacture of the furniture, AQIS will require fumigation of your containers by a licensed fumigation company. Some fumigation treatments are restricted to the country of origin and cannot be completed post-entry into Australia. ICL can work with our international network of agents to ensure that your import meets quarantine requirements prior to arrival to mitigate the risks of your container being held by AQIS.
What Happens if my Furniture Import Fails to Comply?
Failure to comply with Australia’s strict quarantine requirements when importing furniture to Australia can result in delays of your shipment, possibly incurring demurrage and storage charges of your container while it is being inspected and treated. Furthermore, if your furniture has not obtained a phytosanitary certificate prior to import, fumigation and treatment will be required at cost to you. In worst-case scenarios, the cargo will need to be destroyed or reexported if it fails to comply.
