You will need this certificate if you intend to export chemical products to countries outside Australia.
Before accepting products from Australia, these countries may require an assurance from the Australian government stating that the export chemical is suitable for supply and use. This certificate makes a declaration about the formulation or registration status of the product according to the importing country's requirements.
You may apply for a standard certificate of export or you may apply for the following:
- certificate of free sale
- certificate of export (active constituent)
- certificate of export and manufacture (approved good manufacturing practice)
- certificate of manufacture
- certificate of manufacture (approved good manufacturing practice)
- specialised certificate.
You may also apply for a certificate of export for an unregistered chemical product, but you will need to obtain an export permit for that product before doing so.
