Documentation advice for new exporters
As a new exporter, your first step is to register with Australian Customs for their Integrated Cargo System. There will be many other types of documents you need, such as bills of lading, bills of exchange and insurance certificates.

Documents requested by receiving country
You will need these documents as requested by the country you are exporting to. The Austrade website maintains information on each market and the import documents required.
We rely heavily on the information provided by the Chamber. They provide our Certificate of Origin and check whether it’s legal for us to sell to that country. Without this we couldn't trade. Ken O’Keefe, Ultimate Suspension, Ingleburn.
