In emergency situations where Tariff Concession clients are unable to communicate with Customs and Border Protection by email, please be aware that applications and correspondence can be lodged by facsimile or post. The fax number is 02-6275 6376. The postal address is Tariff Concessions, Customs and Border Protection, 5 Constitution Avenue, Canberra. 2601.
The inability to access email can occur for many reasons, including transmission disruptions, government security requirements, and mailbox size. Clients are requested to keep size of attachments below 3 MB to ensure they are able to be received by CBP.
Note that s269F(4) specifies that an application for a TCO is taken to have been lodged when it is first received by an officer of Customs, not when it is sent. If an application is received outside of normal working hours, its lodgement date will be recorded as the next day that it is received by an on-duty officer of Customs.

Note that objectors to the making of a TCO are not identified unless the objection is successful.
The Gazette is published by the Customs and Trade Division of Australian Customs and Border Protection Service each Wednesday.
