All imported furniture that contains timber, wooden articles, bamboo and related products (whether for commercial or personal use) must comply with the import conditions as stated on the Department of Agriculture and Water resources’ Biosecurity Import Conditions system (BICON). 

It is the responsibility of importers to ensure that their products meet the import conditions. Failing to meet import conditions may result in delays, additional costs, and, in some cases, the re-export or destruction of the goods at the importer’s expense.

The types of timber, wooden articles, bamboo, and related products page has product definitions and links to the applicable import conditions in BICON for different types of timber, wooden articles, bamboo and related products.

As mentioned in previous notifications it is also important any wood products are not from illegally logged forests. Clikc here to familiarise yourself with the Australian illegal logging laws
