Submission of Samples

All submissions must be packaged appropriately, meeting IATA Packing Instruction 602, 650 or as exempt diagnostic specimen as relevant. Diagnostic specimens for routine export/import testing of companion animals are usually considered exempt diagnostic specimens.

Specimens should be consigned to:

All submissions must be sent with a Submission Form. If you are a registered user a submission form will be automatically available for printing if you lodge the submission online, or a form can be filled out manually. Samples sent from outside Australia also require:

  • Import permit (for specimens – available online for registered users)
