International Trade Moving"


Continued Biosecurity Competency (CBC)

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) in consultation with industry has developed and implemented Approved Arrangements to allow for assessment of documentation associated with the importation of cargo.

Continued Biosecurity Competency (CBC) is the mandatory annual training requirement for customs brokers and self-reporting importers to maintain accreditation to the 19.1. Non-commodity for Containerised Cargo Clearance (NCCC) and 19.2. Automated Entry Processing for Commodities (AEPCOMM) Approved Arrangements - period each year being from 1 April to 31 March.

FTA is accredited by DAFF to deliver CBC training meaning that we can provide high quality, practical, cost effective and flexible solutions. New courses created will be automatically added to the following individual's library for completion:

  • Individual Members,
  • employees of a Corporate Member who have purchased an online training package, and
  • attendees of one of our CPD - Border Compliance Program events.

NOTE: FTA may report your course completion records for licenced customs broker Continuing Professional Development (CPD) compliance purposes to the Australian Border Force (ABF) and to DAFF for mandatory CBC.

Further detail and how to meet your compliance in the current period is available HERE.

"DHL Global Forwarding uses ComplianceNetFTA for 100+ staff to meet our NCCC and AEPCOMM Continued Biosecurity Competency compliance requirements. Complimenting this, I have also found the accredited content incorporated into FTA's face-to-face events as being an effective way to achieve border and quarantine requirements by simply attending two events per year."
