Important Notice Relating to Asbestos

Please find an important notice issued by the Australian Border Force (ABF) in relation to asbestos. Click here

This notice is the result of products containing asbestos being found in building sites within Australia. The ABF have now profiled an extensive list of tariff items to cover product that may contain asbestos.

We will no longer be able to lodge a shipment that contains a tariff item that is profiled by the ABF without first have written confirmation that the product do not contain asbestos. For some commodities this written confirmation will need to be in the form of sample testing results from a NATA approved laboratory.

Your CFL Customs Broker will be in touch with you if you have commodities affected by the ABF profiling.
