Requirements for cargo reporting and declaring imports, and the detection and identification of goods crossing the border.

Moving goods through the border

The Department has certain requirements for the reporting and clearance of cargo being imported into or exported from Australia. To support these requirements, we have additional measures such as detector dogs and technology at the border such as Cargo Examination Facilities to help protect against terrorism and the movement of illicit or prohibited goods.
