This Industry Advice Notice (IAN) is to inform industry of the implementation of Export Service beta.
Summary of changes and key points
- In December 2021, the Export Service beta became available for export registered establishments.
- The Export Service aims to streamline the administrative process related to export notifications, tasks, payments and more by reducing the need for paper-based forms and documentation submission.
In the 2020–21 Budget, the Australian Government introduced reforms for the Australian agriculture sector in the Busting Congestion for Agricultural Exporters initiative. The Busting Congestion Program will be implemented over 3–5 years. The aim is to reduce the administrative burden by providing a centralised place for all export-related processes and get the products to export markets faster.
The Export Service is still in early stages of development. We will add more features to the Export Service to improve the exporting experience. Some improvements will be simpler versions of forms or systems that you already use. Other improvements will be new, based on feedback from people who use the service.
When complete, the Export Service will be the single place to manage everything related to exporting – notifications, tasks, payments, and more. The service will include features for all export premises (registered, listed, accredited, approved), people working across the supply chain, and people in audit or compliance-related roles. Having a centralised place for all dealings with the department will make it simpler and faster to get agricultural goods to overseas markets.
A video demonstrating the features of Export Service beta is available on the department’s website.
