Australia - Export requirements for milk and dairy products
- All dairy products
Pre-export approvals by the competent authority of the importing country
- A valid import permit issued by the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, under the Biosecurity Act 2015, is required to import dairy products or dairy based foods containing 10% or more dairy ingredients into Australia.
- The food product and/or the dairy ingredients being used to manufacture it must meet the animal health and the public health requirements as specified on the import permit.
- Health certificate for export of dairy products from Canada to Australia
- Note: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) does not have a certificate negotiated with Australian authorities. However, the Agency can issue the health certificate for export of dairy products from Canada to Australia, based on conditions set out in the permit.
- When requesting a certificate, the exporter must provide the CFIA with:
- Copy of the import permit
- Consignment specific manufacturer's declaration including any specific statements as required by the import permit
- A CFIA Manufacturer's certificate
- Veterinary certification from the country of origin for imported dairy ingredients
Further information on import requirements can be obtained from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, and the Australian government's Biosecurity Import Conditions (BICON) database.
