The Australian Border Force (ABF) would like to remind all importers, particularly importers of motor vehicles, that Australia has a zero tolerance policy towards the import and use of anything containing asbestos. Products containing any level of asbestos, regardless of age, are prohibited from import into Australia, the ABF actively targets products suspected of containing asbestos, and if a product being imported is found to be containing asbestos, they will take up the matter with the freight forwarder and importer responsible, penalties may then apply.

Don’t take the risk, ensure all your imports are asbestos free and that you have supporting documentation which can verify this.
