Infringement Notices

Infringement Notices or instant fines will be introduced on 1 April 2019.


From 1 April 2019 Customs officers can issue instant fines.

The fine is $400 for an individual and $800 for a company.

Fines or Infringement Notices replace the petty offences regime (which ceased 1 October 2018). They allow a proportionate response to minor offending and are more cost and time effective to administer.
