Trusted Trader Programme Industry Advisory Group Sydney and Melbourne November 2014
The third round of Industry Advisory Group (IAG) meetings were held on 10 November 2014 in Melbourne and 12 November in Sydney.
Please find attached the minutes from both meetings together with the proposed policy position paper from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
The position paper was formed encompassing the views presented at both IAGs and in consultation with other government agencies.
Members should note that:
- Assembly orders will not be an issue if an importer is validated through the accreditation process as a Trusted Trader, as cargo reporting will not be a requirement
- Even though some parts of Assembly Orders are being considered outside of Trusted Trader, DIBP has stated that there will not be any changes in the near future that would require enhancements to the Integrated Cargo System (ICS)
- Details of customs reporting (Air Cargo Report [ACR] and Formal Import Declaration [FID]) are yet to be discussed
- Similarly the cost/fee structure for a Trusted Trader with regards to the current Import Processing Charge (IPC) is still open for discussion
