Asbestos Import/Export & Testing
Asbestos was banned in Australia in 2003. As such producing, importing and exporting goods with asbestos is illegal, except in very limited circumstances. It is the responsibility of the importer or exporter to ensure that their products do not contain any asbestos.
The Australian Border Force (ABF) regulates the import and export of goods at the border. You will find more information on importing and exporting asbestos on their website.
