Guidance explaining changes for UK exporters to Australia if we leave the EU with no deal.
The UK is seeking a trade agreement with Australia.
We already have a mutual recognition agreement with them.
Tariffs and quotas
Until we sign a trade agreement with Australia, the UK exports to Australia on Most Favoured Nation terms under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules.
Check Australia’s import tariffs and quotas under WTO rules on the Market Access MAP website.
Product testing, certification and inspection
The mutual recognition agreement between the UK and Australia means we recognise each other’s conformity assessments.
Some UK goods can be tested in the UK against Australia’s regulations. The goods can then be sold in Australia without additional testing in Australia.
Find out what is covered by the mutual recognition agreement with Australia.
Find out how UK businesses can manage risk when doing business in Australia.
The export licensing regulations for controlled goods will be affected.
Controlled goods include:
- military items
- dual-use items (items with both civil and military uses)
Find out how export licensing for controlled goods will change.
Sanctions and embargoes
Exports of certain categories of product to some countries are subject to embargoes or sanctions.
Find out about the new sanction and embargo regulations.
