If you enter for home consumption (within the meaning of the Customs Act 1901 ) goods that are warehoused goods (within the meaning of that Act) and that were imported by another person:

(a) you are treated, for the purposes of Division 15 , as having imported the goods; and

This section has effect despite Division 15 (which is about creditable importations).
