The department has today commenced public consultation on seven of the commodity specific Exposure Draft Export Control Rules 2020 (draft rules).

Deputy Secretary Agricultural Trade Group, David Hazlehurst, said the consultation was another opportunity for our export industries and trading partners to provide further input into the draft rules.
