Hazard Labels for
Dangerous Goods (DG)

The international community has established a classification system for easy identification of dangerous goods. These goods fall into nine primary classes, and some classes are further divided to address specific risks. Each class/division has a corresponding label that accurately represents the nature of the hazard. These labels must be attached to the package during transport and remain intact throughout the journey. Take a look at the illustrated examples below to understand how these labels effectively communicate the potential dangers.

Under regulations, labels must be clearly visible on the outside of the package and must stay on the package while in transit.

You can often find labels printed on most inner packages such as:

  • aerosol cans
  • bottles of bleach
  • containers of thinners
  • tins of paint
  • many other products which are available at supermarkets and hardware stores.

Below are the 9 hazard labels for the 9 classes of dangerous goods.

An Overview of Bills of Lading: Ensuring Precision in Shipping

Why is it crucial to verify Bill of Lading details?
The Bill of Lading meticulously captures the smallest shipment details, providing an exact representation of your cargo. This document is pivotal for identifying your shipment and becomes invaluable in dispute scenarios, especially when handling liability claims for damaged, lost, or delayed shipments.

When is the Bill of Lading Issued?
As a specialist in international shipping and freight, CargoMaster places utmost importance on accuracy in shipping dates, marks, and cargo descriptions when issuing the Bill of Lading. Adhering to maritime regulations, CargoMaster ensures precise details, recognising the significance of the date on the Bill of Lading, marking the enforcement of the shipment contract.

How is the Bill of Lading Compiled?
The compilation of a Bill of Lading involves several checks within the export documentation flow. Freight Forwarders like CargoMaster play a crucial role, ensuring accurate details such as container and bolt seal numbers, vessel information, weights, pieces loaded, and voyage numbers. While Bills of Lading are typically issued after the vessel sails, special requests may lead to earlier issuances.

A Contract in Documentation: The Bill of Lading
Functioning as a contract between the International Shipping Company and the cargo shipper, the Bill of Lading mirrors other contractual agreements, like a residential tenancy agreement. To meet international standards, Bills of Lading must align with conventions such as The Hague Rule, Hague-Visby Rule, Hamburg Rule, and The Carriage of Goods by Sea Act Australia 1991.

Insight into the Documentation Timeline
Disputes regarding Bill of Lading issues primarily emerge in cargo exportation. The export documentation flow involves meticulous coordination, ensuring the timely gathering of information from various sources. CargoMaster, handling machinery and out-of-gauge cargo, faces additional documentation requirements for compliance with international regulations.

International Freight Certificates: Navigating Export Documentation

Certificate of Free Sale (CFS)
A crucial document confirming the approval to sell goods in Australia, essential for customs clearance and import processes in certain overseas markets.

When exporting to certain countries you will require a Certificate of Free Sale (CFS), also called an export certificate or certificate of export. An Export Certificate confirms in writing that you can sell your goods in the Australian market and that there are no restrictions. The Certificate of Free Sale certifies that you have the approval of relevant authorities to sell your goods in Australia.

The overseas purchaser of your products may have problems with customs clearance and registration process’s if you do not provide a CFS when required, your buyer may not be able to import your product into their country. You may need to present this certificate as part of the customs clearance or registration process.

A CFS is often requested for products such as:

  • food-based products
  • medical parts, devices and products
  • certain complementary, prescription, and over the counter medicines.

Not all countries require a CFS, the need for a Certificate of Free Sale will depend on your product and your export market. Speak with your buyer to find out if you need a CFS.

Where can I get a Certificate of Free Sale?

ATA Carnet (Admission Temporary Admission) 
Facilitates the temporary entry of goods into foreign countries, providing exemptions for import duties and taxes. Commonly used for high-value goods at exhibitions, trade shows, motorsports, and audiovisual production.

An ATA Carnet is an international document that permits temporary the temporary entry of commodities into overseas countries. Carnets are used for goods that are intended to be imported for a short period of time, then exported back to the country of origin. It provides exemptions for import duties and taxes. It is most often used for high-value goods imported for specific uses.

Typical goods that may be transported under a Carnet:

  • cars, bikes, boats, caravans or trailers for exhibitions and trade shows
  • es or cars and other vehicles used for motorsports
  • equipment, trucks, and machinery for mining or farming
  • cameras and other equipment used for filming and audiovisual production.

To apply for a Carnet contact The Australian Chamber Of Commerce and Industry

Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry    www.australianchamber.com.au/international/certificates-of-origin   (ACCI).

Phytosanitary Certificate
Required for regulated commodities like plants and plant products, certifying compliance with quarantine regulations and the absence of pests.
Phytosanitary Certificates available from the Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment.

Certificate of Origin (CoO)
Government-certified or authorised entity-issued document confirming the origin of commodities, essential for Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and customs clearance.

Note: Always check specific product and market requirements for accurate documentation needs.

Certificates of Origin are needed when Origin when

  • exporting to countries where Australia has a current Free Trade Agreement (FTA)
  • it is requested by the importer for customs clearance
  • it is specified in a Documentary Letter of Credit.

Some agreements will allow for a self-certification, while others require a certificate from an authorised body. Self-certification carries a high level of risk and is not recommended for new exporters.

There are 2 types of Certificates of Origin

  1. Preferential certificates

A Preferential certificate will assist customs authorities to confirm your compliance with trade agreements made, tariffs and  and Rules of Origin. Rules of Origin (ROO) are an agreed set of rules between countries that share a preferential trade agreement, such as a Free Trade Agreement (FTA). ROO set out the criteria for which goods are eligible for free or preferential import tariffs. Typically, they require a product to be entirely produced in a one of the participating countries or have a minimum percentage of the value produced there. They can be complex to understand so speak with your customs broker or freight forwarder or visit the DFAT Free Trade Agreement Portal.

Note: If Australia has a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the country you are exporting to you can apply for a Preferential certificate

2. Non-preferential certificates 

Local governments of most countries issue non-preferential certificates to collect statistical data and ensure you are meeting:

  • government sanctions
  • anti-dumping rules
  • quotas
  • general tariffs.
