What are the necessary steps involved in the correct procedures for exporting and interacting with the right agency? Dependent on the commodity these may vary and utilising NT Farmers Association, the representative peak body, Department of Agriculture, Department of Water and Natural Resources, your local government institution, Austrade etc. can assist in preparing you for the export process.
The export process:
- Identify whether your goods are prescribed
- Under the Export Control Act 1982, fresh fruit and vegetables are ‘prescribed goods’ and must comply with the requirements under the Export Control Act 1982
2. Check the importing country requirements
3. Submit a Notice of Intention or Request for Permit form and supporting documents
- Prepare your goods and any registrations. Properties, including farms and packhouses, will need to be accredited by the department if the importing country requires the property to follow specific procedures or systems. For more info visit Horticulture export accredited properties
4. For mango export registration
5. Present documents and goods to an Authorised Officer
- Fruit and vegetables must be inspected by an Authorised Officer at a registered establishment and must be found to be free of pests, contaminants and in a condition that allows any phytosanitary requirement or other certificates to be issued. Refer useful Resources below.
