Amnesty International Enterprise Agreement
«This unique international instrument has introduced modern standards for supply chain security and launched a new approach to end-to-end management of cross-border goods, while recognizing the importance of a closer partnership between customs and business. The amnesty period begins on 24 May 2018 and expires six months after the date the legislation received royal approval (6 March 2020). Sellers should also ensure that the implementation of trade restrictions in acquisition agreements provides them with sufficient flexibility to take emergency measures to address urgent problems without having to return to the buyer`s prior agreement before taking such action. Have you recently purchased an online product, downloaded an app or other software to your device, or purchased an online subscription? It is likely that each of these transactions would have involved the conclusion of an online agreement. Classification structure, indicative roles and classification checks: we have taken into account the classification structure proposed by management and we do not yet think that is entirely accurate. However, a classification structure is a time-consuming thing. We should represent all the roles of AIA, take into account their and their actual tasks, and then compare them with the classifications of the underlying SCHDS Award. This would take a lot of time and effort, which would slow the progress of the negotiations. We would certainly not be able to reach an agreement in principle before the December 15 board meeting. The first day was Dr. Bradley Armstrong PSM, the head of the new Customs Group within the Australian Border Force (ABF) and president of the NCTF. Dr. Armstrong provided more details on the Customs Group`s plan for activity and the way forward for the ABF, as he wanted to deal with the significant trade increases expected without similar increases in resources, based on the evolution of modernization and trade facilitation.
The ABF was also represented by Craig Palmer, Regional Director of Victoria and Tasmania, who provided an update on ABF`s compliance axis and measures, both now and in the future. The public also received a briefing on ABF`s aviation and safety initiatives at sea, including the abbreviated sweep of international air cargo, which, from 2020, will lead to new digitization requirements for domestic air cargo. Each of these speakers spoke of the importance of the Australian Trusted Trader and Known Consignor programs as «trusted participants.» ABF`s significant contribution was then complemented by Steve Moore, Director of Customs Licensing, Trusted Trader and Trade Services Branch, Customs Group at ABF. Steve has been linked to private supply chain service providers from a technology perspective for many years, but is now directly involved in ABF`s licensing activities, including those of licensed customs brokers.
