Reporting requirements for seafood exporters

If you export or process fish or fish products, you must ensure you are aware of, and comply with, current importing country requirements and market access conditions.

The Australian Government's Department of Agriculture and Water Resources website has market access advice notices that have information on changes to the export trade conditions for fish and fish products.

Catch certificates

The European Commission requires that any wild-caught fish and fishery products can be imported into a member country of the European Union only when accompanied by an appropriate catch certificate.

Catch certificates demonstrate that the fish and fisheries products have been obtained by complying with established conservation and management measures.

How to validate catch certificates

To validate catch certificates, forward completed certificates to:
