Asbestos in Imported Goods

Asbestos in Imported Goods

The Australian Border Force (ABF) has confirmed that for owners to be certain that any goods are asbestos free, they must have acceptable certification. The ABF will only accept certification from NATA approved testing bodies or equivalent as satisfactory evidence of asbestos free certainty. 

In order to confirm there is no asbestos contained within cargo, Customs Brokers must be provided with confirmation from the owner of the goods that they are certain that the goods are free of asbestos. 

BTi requests that you be mindful of any possibility of asbestos being present within your goods as there is a strong possibility that we will need to ask the question and seek confirmation.

Australia has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to asbestos. 

If you have any questions please contact the BTi Customs department.
