Defence export controls

Australia has a Defence export control system. Companies looking to export their defence products, software or technologies may need a permit from Defence Export Controls (DEC) branch.

You can use the self-assessment tool to determine if you need a permit. A permit from DEC is only required when an export, supply, brokering or publishing activity is controlled and the goods, software or technology are listed in the Defence and Strategic Goods List.

If you are still not sure whether you require a permit after using the tool, you will need to download the application forms and submit them to DEC for assessment.

Thanks for your feedback. If you have any ideas on how we can improve, we'd love to hear them.
