Seafood products exempt from the non-viable eligible species list
(Source: Department of Agriculture)
A reminder that the Department has been advised that the (non-viable) eligible species list is not applicable to products whose Harmonised System (HS) tariff codes are located in 1603000090-1605909090 or 2103909000:
1603 – Extracts and juices of meat, fish or crustaceans, molluscs or other aquatic invertebrates
1604 – Prepared or preserved fish (whole or in pieces, but not minced) and caviar and caviar substitutes prepared from fish eggs
1605 – Crustaceans, molluscs and other aquatic invertebrates, prepared or preserved
21039090 – Sauces and preparations therefor, containing more than 20% by weight, fish crustaceans, molluscs or other aquatic invertebrates.
Industry can investigate whether their seafood products may be legitimately tariffed under the above Harmonised System Codes and therefore exported to China without the need for non-viable eligible species listing. If you are unsure of the Tariff code being applied to your product you should contact your importer or customs broker for further information.
