Hi,

I am a small entreprenuer wishing to start importing a product which is currently sold in Europe.

I understand the need for caution when dealing with chemicals, but this product has passed all required tests in Europe, yet it still has to be assessed here in Australia.

I feel this extra level of scrutiny is uneccessary and time consuming, not to mention expensive. (Registration fees etc)

I hope the review will focus on Red tape procedures and save small business time and money.

Thanks

Mike
