Gatekeeper for Customs Users

Australian Customs

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection uses Symantec Gatekeeper Certificates to increase the security of the Integrated Cargo System (ICS).

A Symantec Gatekeeper certificate lets you interact with the ICS via a Web browser or EDI software. This allows you to lodge import/export declarations and cargo reports, amend EDI messages, check cargo status, access the CMR diagnostic facility, update client registers and obtain research reports.

Visit the Cargo Support page for more information.

Organisations with ABNs

If your organisation, department or business (including sole proprietorship) has an ABN, enter it below.
