Australia passed a law aimed at increasing the export of medical hemp

24.06.2020

In foreign markets, Australian hemp raw materials with significant therapeutic potential will already have to compete with producers from the Netherlands, Canada, Great Britain, Colombia, Uruguay, Israel. In addition, it must be borne in mind that in the near future Jamaica, Greece, Denmark, Portugal, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, New Zealand plan to enter this market with similar products, and the list of countries planning to be represented on this market is constantly growing. 

The legislative body of the country amended the relevant regulatory act in order to create conditions for a significant increase in the export of hemp, as well as drugs made on the basis of the therapeutic properties of the plant. The bill “On Amending Export Control Legislation” was approved by the House of Representatives on June 10 and in the Senate on June 17. The bill’s explanatory note focuses on the fact that “The amendments will remove unnecessary and unintentional regulatory barriers to Australian hemp exports. Its adoption will help increase trade and Australia's legitimate export markets for hemp with a low THC content, as well as plant-based medicines. ” 

In particular, the Minister of Agriculture of Australia, David Littleprod, in a conversation with the media claimed that "the bill passed in the Senate expands existing legislation, allowing certification of the export of medical and technical hemp." Defending the need for the adoption of this regulatory act, the Minister in the country's parliament said, “As modern hemp breeding is rapidly expanding, markets will require export certification from the Australian government. The proposed changes to the legal framework will allow Australian exports to meet biosecurity import requirements for any market where a phytosanitary certificate is required. ” During his speeches, Mr. Littleprod emphasized that the country's main export markets located in Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, the United States imply certain requirements for phytosanitary certificates and without them Australian products cannot enter the territory of the above countries. Mr. Littleprod emphasized that “All of these markets require official phytosanitary certification. And this is another confirmation that the adoption of this bill will finally allow it to be issued to the Australian authorities. This bill will increase export markets for hemp and drugs made on the basis of the therapeutic properties of the plant. He will support government initiatives to reduce the bureaucratic delays of those present in the regulatory sphere and will allow agricultural enterprises to enter new sales markets after the global crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic is over. ”

According to experts from the hemp market in Australia, the lack of phytosanitary certification was identified as one of the main problems in the development of Australian hemp breeding in 2018. Instead of certificates in the market, government guarantees were used, the receipt of which took a lot of time and put local manufacturers at a disadvantage. The introduction of appropriate amendments to the law will allow the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry to issue phytosanitary certificates for export deliveries of medical and technical hemp. In fact, restrictions are lifted so that Australian cannabis farmers can gain access to more markets.

Commentary by the Ukrainian Technical Hemp Association

The attitude of state officials towards modern hemp breeding is characterized by the phrase of the Australian Senator Christine Kenili, who emphasizes that “the time has come for the government to use the full potential of the most profitable agricultural crop”. Actually, Australia’s law is designed to give national producers of legal hemp, with significant therapeutic potential, the same opportunity as wool, beef, and wine producers with leading Australian agricultural exporters.

The number of countries planning to capitalize on cannabis exports is growing faster than the markets they hope to enter. For example, Australia, which until recently was one of the main consumers of Canadian cannabinoid oil (about 3,700 liters in 2019), is becoming one of the exporters of hemp raw materials, suggesting the substitution of imported supplies from Canada with raw materials produced by national producers. In foreign markets, Australian hemp raw materials with significant therapeutic potential will already have to compete with producers from the Netherlands, Canada, Great Britain, Colombia, Uruguay, Israel. In addition, it must be borne in mind that in the near future Jamaica, Greece, Denmark, Portugal, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, New Zealand plan to enter this market with similar products, and the list of countries planning to be represented on this market is constantly growing.

 

Australian Cannabis Permits 

I would like to focus on the fact that in a democracy with more than 25 million people over the past year, 39,768 permits have been issued to patients for the use of hemp.
