    You'd probably be best to talk to someone in Australia in the import/export business. I think I'd try that before contacting a govt agency, you would probably have to tell them what their rules are !

    I have noticed that often import experiences are shared on the Cruisers forum.

    Check with China as well. You never know!
    Years ago I helped a fellow with a 110' steel sailboat he had built in China. China would not let it leave until it had a stability book AND it had to be out of the country within 30 days.
    Things may have eased by now but you never know.
