New standard import permit for fish oils


Feb 12, 2024

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) of Australia has introduced import changes for fish oils.

The new import conditions are:

  • A valid standard import permit issued by the DAFF is required prior to the importation of fish oils into Australia If the goods cannot meet the standard conditions, importers must apply for a non-standard permit, and the goods will be subject to individual assessments, with the corresponding product names listed on the permit;
  • The only animal-derived material in the goods (other than gelatine) must be fish oil. In addition, the fish oil must be heat-treated prior to arrival in Australia, or directed to a class 3.0 approved arrangements site for further processing or re-packaging;
  • The goods must meet biosecurity conditions. Each consignment must be packed in clean packaging/containers.
