Changes have been made to the online system to further simplify the application process and reduce administrative burden.

  • Certificates (SIC and STC) are now shorter and only detail essential information.

  • WDIC (wholesale dealer import) certificates are now available to apply for online.

We will no longer accept postal or email WDIC applications from 1 November 2016.
