    I have a question that is a little off topic. I am heading down to Australia for a little while and sent something in the post there that I am a little worried about being caught by customs (not supps). I was just wondering if something is caught up by customs what would it say on the tracking information? Would it say customs exception or something like that? I have sent things through and the tracking has said "Released by customs" but I would like to know what it would say if something was not cleared immediately. Thanks.

    due to the shear volume of mail incoming into Australia, it is reasonable to presume that:

    a) letters have little or no chance of being inspected

    b) small packages have a small to medium chance of being inspected

    c) large packages have a medium to high chance of being inspected

    based on my past experiences importing non-supplement related stuff.. if something is being held by customs as a result of duties or taxes needing to be paid. Under the tracking system, the status will just say:

    "Your item is being processed by customs in AUSTRALIA". If it stays like this for over 2-3 days, then most likely somethings up. The status wont change at all, if its held. You will only know once you get a letter in the mail.

    Hey Akula, was your package inspected by customs? Im just checking my chances of getting it through customs since on the pack itself it lists the compound as "Dymethazine™". also is there "anabolic compound" written all over the box like some other ph?

    mate, you cannot post other sources in AM - NP is the 'official store'

    . . . it's a bit like going into Macca's and asking where the nearest KFC is

    do a web search and you'll come up with something I'm sure

    Has anyone here had any problems with quarantine?

    Ive recently had an order through (USPS to Sydney) and had FOUR items seized by quarantine.

    2 x Tubs of Bulk Super Cissus RX (No ingredients list on the label)
    1 x Tub of Banaba Powder (No ingredients list)
    1 x Tub of Nos Ether Level 1 (Has Cnidium on the ingredients list, but not what type. The full Nos Ether has Cnidium Monnieri on the label. Dont know why level 1 doesnt)

    Has anyone else run into this problem before? How did you get around it?

    ive had heaps of bulk planet powder come through including the ones you listed, infact i just ordered some more, i dont see why it would be a problem but it might be worth us all talking to the planet about it to help stop this in the future

    i doubt NP could help us out with anything except supplying the list of ingredients. Then again, if were talking about bulk products its usually just 1 ingredient most of the time anyways

    If anything, we should should start expressing our grief to customs more often.. but i doubt they would give a sh*t considering the issue is in regards to our aussie dollars going over to the US.

    we need someone on the inside ... any politicians in here?? :P

    I remember reading something about this on the old thread. If I remember correctly one problem was if you bought say a 1Kg of BCAA it would have on the cover 1Kg BCAA but no ingredient listing on the product. Now this makes total sense to us but apparently our AQIS and Customs need an ingredients listing on all products! This is were the manufacture can help by simply putting an ingredients listing/panel on all products no matter how obvious we think it is its not obvious enough in this country.

    I do recall some members getting there products released after getting manufacture decelerations and the like I am sure whoever confiscated the product gives a letter with full details of what the problem was and what you can do.

    After approximately 8 orders I have never had any issues with importing supps - bulk products or otherwise - although I have never attempted to bring in hormonal products.

    It appears the system is getting worse - import at your own risk fellas

    In the last 12 months I have done 5 from N.P and 3 from other suppliers I usually get 10 items or more. The only product in the last 12 months confiscated was some protein bars due to egg content. I Can't figure out why some people have so many issues.

    So this guy gets two notices then orders some more gets a visit? Then goes to the customs office presumably gives them id and gets his 2nd gear. That's like making a full admission it was his order. He must be seriously lacking in the intelligence department! If the notice was to me in my name I would have called them up and said WTF I never order this stuff what's second gear? .... guys please destroy it or send it back its not mine.

    Please you seem a little slow yourself! Like I told you before in Australia we don't have kangaroo courts and its not a police state either they need warrants and subpoenas to get personal details from a bank, websites or suppliers. Like they are going to go through all that bother! Why not just ask the dumb smuck to come in to the office and confirm it was his order and give him his 2nd gear.
    So stupid! I guess after he made three orders to the same address and name, calling him stupid is a compliment.

    Mate its really hard to tell atm. A similar situation occurred on the old thread when a group of people were saying everything was being confiscated and it turned out to be B.S. The last order I made had products without ingredient lists and came through after being searched but it was just bulk aminos and some other goodies. I think AQIS can if they want confiscate just about any plant based product due to risk of introducing exotic disease/pests but I don't think it happens all that often. Products listed as extract might have a better chance of getting through? We need more people ordering and leaving comments for successfully orders.

    ... I guess that's not much help to you is it Best advice make the order if you can afford to lose it. Maybe Steveo can chime in with some feedback from N.P??????????? re p-slin and shipping it down under.
