|Importing samples into Australia|
International users who wish to bring samples to the Australian Synchrotron, or to ship them separately, are required to include with their samples a copy of the Australian Synchrotron's AQIS permit AND a letter from the Australian Synchrotron expressly approving their use of the permit for the date(s) of their experiment(s).
Please see the below table for a list of commodities covered by the Australian Synchrotron AQIS permits.
If you are unsure about whether your specific samples are covered by existing permits, please visit the AQIS website. This site provides information on how to obtain additional permits if necessary.
** Please note that it may not be possible to import untreated soil or plant samples to the Australian Synchrotron. Refer to the ICON database for the specific import conditions for your sample. Where the import conditions require containment in a Quarantine Approved Premises (QAP) please note that the Australian Synchrotron is not currently approved as a QAP.
