    When I said we don't have anything to do with the Dept. of Environment and heritage I should have clarified that we do not deal with them directly.

    Seeds of endangered or CITES listed species are referred to Customs. So it is actually Customs who act as an agent for the Dept. of Environment and Heritage. Quarantine does not deal directly with them.

    The Dept. of Heritage and Environment only see the seeds if they are referred to them by Customs after Quarantine has performed an initial inspection and identified them as endangered or CITES listed species.

    The fact that a package does not have a declaration does not mean that it will be confiscated. If the seeds are clean and labelled they are released, (unless they are a weed species or CITES listed) whether or not they had a declaration on the outside of the package.

    Live specimens are seized under section 444A of the Environment protection and Biodiversity Conservation act 1999 (The Act).............................................................................
    Reason for Seizure.

    The specimen/s have been seized as i reasonably suspect that they have been used (or otherwise involved) in the commission of an offence against part 13 A of the Act:
    On the grounds of that there was no labelling on envelope

    And the key words are - 'Live Specimens'. Seeds are not classified as live specimens.

    Specifically, what commodity does this seizure relate to?

    So I CAN send this poor Canadian guy his seeds? I take it from parts of this post that if I send my cheesy "official hybrid certificate" that I made up (a few of you have seen it) which states what these seeds are, who the parents are and what pod they're from as well as the baggie the seeds are in itself being labeled, I'm ok? Do I need to put a notice that there are seeds in the envelope?

    Thanks for any help! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
