An SEW [Single Electronic Window style of RFP] is a combination of an RFP and an EDN where AQIS acts as an agent to obtain the EDN from Customs when the SEW is submitted to EXDOC. Some additional information that is required by Customs, like FOB value and AHECC classification, is also required when an SEW is submitted.
Many of our clients use this facility as it saves both time and money for all their export requirements. To be able to use this feature, you first must make sure that you have registered with AQIS as an exporter using the SEW feature and also register your company and ABN number for exports with Customs. If your company is already registered with AQIS as an exporter that uses EXDOC, but without being enabled to use SEW, then you can contact AQIS to change your registration to include access to the SEW facility.
