About ImpexRFP

ImpexRFP turns costly, time consuming and inefficient paper based processing of Australian Health Certificates & Export Permits into a streamlined online process.

ImpexRFP is a simple and cost-effective web based application enabling export permit requests to be lodged over the internet.

The application interfaces to the EXport DOCumentation (EXDOC) system operated by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) in order to obtain the Phytosanitary/Health Certificates for Exporters of certain prescribed goods such as Grain, Horticulture, Dairy, Fish, Meat, Indelible Meat, Egg, Wool and Skin & Hides.

ImpexRFP’s web based electronic certificates deliver unsurpassed productivity gains to Exporters by eliminating delays and costs associated with the traditional combination of paper and courier based certification involved in obtaining of Export Permit Numbers (EPN) and Certificates.

ImpexRFP is a user friendly tool and supports the needs of both large and small exporters in one simple, time saving process.

The RFP, or Request for Permit, is the electronic version of the manual Notices of Intention to Export (EX28s and EX222s), which the EXDOC system has been designed to process electronically.

Interfacing with the EXDOC system enables the automatic generation of a Health Certificate / Phytosanitary Certificate/Certificate as to Condition etc. (eg EX46, E16, E171) as required by Importing Authorities.

In addition to processing the RFP, EXDOC can also obtain an Export Declaration Number (EDN) from Australian Customs Service (ACS) on behalf of the exporter via the Single Electronic Window (SEW).

  • Faster turnaround time as Electronic messaging and elimination of manual processes results in message status updates in minutes
