An applicant for registration as a special reporter in respect of low value cargo of a particular kind may make an application under this subsection in relation to cargo of that kind.

67EC(2)  
An application must:


(a) be in writing; and


(b) be in an approved form; and


(c) contain such information as the form requires; and


(d) be accompanied by such other documentation as the form requires; and


(e) be signed in the manner indicated in the form; and


(f) be lodged as required by subsection (4).

67EC(3)  
Without limiting by implication the generality of the information that may be required by the approved form, the application must indicate the premises in Australia at which the dedicated computer facilities of the applicant are located and the premises in Australia at which documents relating to information required to be stored on those facilities are or will be located.

67EC(4)  


An application is taken to have been lodged with the Department when the application is first received by an officer of Customs designated by the Comptroller-General of Customs to receive such applications.

(b) (repealed)


(c) if the person seeks that registration in relation to low value cargo of any other kind prescribed by the regulations - must make a separate application for such registration in relation to each prescribed kind of low value cargo.
