You may need this registration if you intend to broker goods or technology listed in the Defence and Strategic Goods or Technology List (DSGL) between two places outside of Australia. Brokering is when a person or organisation acts as an agent or intermediary in arranging the supply of DSGL goods, software or technology between two places located outside of Australia. For the activity to be considered brokering, you must receive money or a non-cash benefit or advance their political, religious or ideological cause for arranging the supply.
Controlled goods include but are not limited to items such as:
- propellants and constituent chemicals for propellants
- military ground vehicles
- production equipment for rockets and missiles.
Once you are registered as a broker, you will need to fill out the separate application for a permit to broker controlled goods and technologies.
