Fish product codes for EXDOC users

​​​​When you are requesting an export permit using the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources Export Documentation System (EXDOC), you will need to include details of your product.

Use our code lists to ensure you are entering the correct:

  • product code
  • Australian Fish Name.

Product codes are linked to the Australian Harmonised Export Commodity Codes (AHECC) by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, to classify internationally traded goods as they enter and leave the country. AHECCs identify goods that must be accompanied by an export permit before entering the wharf or airport and being cleared for export.

Product descriptions and scientific names listed in these tables are as they appear in:

  • EXDOC
  • printed on export documentation, including Health Certificates (when applicable).

Code lists are subject to periodic change to make sure the product descriptions and scientific names are consistent with the Australian Fish Names Database.

Processors, exporters and EXDOC users are advised of changes via Industry Advice Notices (IANs), please ensure you check the most recent Australian Fish Names IAN for the most current information.
