Making it easier for Australian businesses to report a barrier

Trade Barriers Gateway

We are making it easier for businesses to report non-tariff barriers in overseas markets that are restricting their export trade. We're also helping businesses to overcome them.

You can raise concerns with your industry association, as well as directly with government departments and agencies. You can also lodge your concerns here and we’ll connect you with the right support. We’ll get back to you with an initial response within two working days.

Report your barrier

To help us assist you the information you provide will be shared across government agencies for the purpose of helping you to achieve your export aims

The World Customs Organization's Harmonized System (HS) uses code numbers to define products. A code with a low number of digits defines broad categories of products; additional digits indicate sub-divisions into more detailed definitions. HS codes are common to six digits between countries; each can add more digits for its own coding to subdivide the definitions further. Products defined at the most detailed level applied by a particular country (whether six or more digits) are "tariff lines".
Please include an estimate of time spent managing it, and cost of doing business/lost revenue
