Public consultation on Australia’s agricultural export legislation

As part of a wider initiative to strengthen agricultural exports and market access, the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources is improving the current agricultural export legislative framework.

Public consultation on the draft Export Control Bill 2017 is now open. Exporters, industry, trading partners and members of the public have 60 days to provide comment on the draft Export Control Bill 2017 and associated Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS).

The scope of this consultation is confined to the draft Export Control Bill 2017 and associated RIS. Requests for substantive policy change cannot be addressed through this consultation. The Bill will be supported by Rules which will be developed throughout 2018.

The consultation period on the Bill will close on 24 October 2017
