Under the Export Control Act 1982 and the Export Control Orders 1997, it is prohibited to export organic produce unless an Organic Produce Certificate (OPC) or Transaction Certificate (TC) has been issued under these Orders for the produce. These documents are a requirement of the Australian Government and require authorisation from Certification Bodies such as Australian Certified Organic.
For all organic exports over 10Kg or 10L, an OPC or TC is required, irrespective of whether the importing country requires the document or not.
Please refer to our ACO Exporting Requirements for Certified Organic/Biodynamic Produce here for full instructions.
Please view our current Fee Schedule for OPC/TC processing fees.
Please address all OPC enquiries to our exports email
