What to provide and arrange

Essential requirements

You may make a written request for permission to export 'objectionable goods' to the Director of the Classification Board.

In considering whether to grant a permission to export, the Director is to have regard to the following matters in subregulation 3(5) of the Regulations:

  1. the purposes for which the goods are to be exported, and
  2. the extent to which the person to whom a permission would be given conducts activities of an artistic or educational, or of a cultural or scientific, nature to which the goods relate, and
  3. the reputation of the person referred to in paragraph (b), both generally and in relation to an activity referred to in that paragraph, and
  4. the ability of that person to meet conditions that may be imposed under subregulation (6) in relation to the goods, and
  5. any other relevant matters.

A permission to export may specify conditions or restrictions on the exportation of the goods, such as acceptable methods of transportation and measures to ensure the security of the items.

Your request for permission to export 'objectionable goods' must adequately address each of the matters outlined above and be accompanied by relevant supporting documentary evidence.
