Import duty concessions for Australian Manufacturers

February 22, 2012 • Technology

Certain Inputs to Manufacture (CIM)

Program Status:  Open to applications.

The Certain Inputs to Manufacture (CIM) Program aims to improve the competitiveness of Australian industry by providing import duty concessions on certain imported raw materials and intermediate goods such as chemical, plastics or paper goods.  In addition, CIM covers metal materials and goods which are used for the packaging of food.

Applications for the concession are primarily assessed on the basis of an independent technical assessment which demonstrates that the imported goods are substantially and demonstrably superior in certain respects to comparable goods produced in Australia for specific end products. Applications should also provide advice from the Industry Capability Network which identifies at least one Australian manufacturer of comparable goods.

Contact: Should you have an inquiry about CIM, please contact theAusIndustry Hotline on 13 28 46 or email
