These are the rules applying to the use of the ‘Buy Australian’® logo and the ‘Australian Logo’®.
‘BUY AUSTRALIAN’® LOGO and ‘AUSTRALIAN LOGO’® CALCULATION CRITERIA –
AS DETERMINED AT THE TIME OF SUPPLY AND OR MANUFACTURE.
CONTENT% ‘Content’ shall mean ONE (1) of the following:
- ORGANIC AND INORGANIC FOODS AND/OR GOODS – PROCURED DIRECTLY FROM THE AUSTRALIAN ENVIRONS
(meaning things raised, grown, fished or obtained directly from either the Australian earth, water and or air) SCORE 100%
- FOR MIXED WHOLEFOODS AND PROCESSED FOODS:
A: The percentile score of the leading four (4) ingredients AND any other ingredient(s) as declared by the products ‘Label Name’ that are of Australian origin measured as a percentage of total weight.
B: Any water (whether of Australian origin or not) which is added to reconstitute an ingredient that is not of Australian origin is deemed to have the same origin as the foreign ingredient.
- MANUFACTURED GOODS (NOT FOODS):
The percentile score of input materials that are of Australian origin (NOT MADE) measured as a percentage of total COST.
Content Calculations for Found Objects:
FOUND OBJECTS are items removed directly from the Australian environment for use either singularly or in conjunction with other items both Australian and or Foreign sourced. Usually no direct value can be prescribed to such items.
The calculation criteria for such items is as follows.
1: Where a Wholesale value Exc GST can be prescribed to each item prior to manufacture/assembly/completion.
The Australian content shall be the wholesale value of those items of Australian Origin expressed as a percentage of the total wholesale value of the items.
EG; An Australian timber golf Club head finished for assembly is $50. Australian timber Golf Shaft ready to assemble $35.
And Foreign Leather and Linen for final application to shaft $15.
Australian Content total Wholesale value $85. Expressed as a percentage of Total Whole sale value of $100 = 85%
Your score for Australian Content would be 85%
Where no wholesale value can be calculated with any certainty THEN-
2: By Weight:
The total weight of Australian sourced -Found Objects- expressed as a percentage of the total weight forming the whole item.
EG; A Golf Club head weighs, 500 Grams. The Shaft weighs 350 Grams and the foreign leather and linen weighs a total of 150 Grams.
Total weight of Australian Origin items 850 Grams expressed as percentage of total item weight of 1000 Grams = 85%
Your score for Australian Content would be 85%.
‘Owned’ shall mean the percentile score of Australian citizens who have a legal interest in the entity, be that an individual, partnership, firm, or company AND its parent company(s), if any, producing the goods listed with the ‘Buy Australian’ Logo®.
Where the entity is a company that is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). ‘Owned’ shall be the percentile score of ‘Australian citizens’ who hold a directorship in the company AND its parent company(s), if any.
‘Made’ shall mean the percentile score of the cost of producing or manufacturing the goods (as the case may be) that is attributable to production or manufacturing in Australia AND that the relevant goods satisfy the requirements of section 65AB of the Trades Practices Act 1974 (cth)(as amended), that is, a substantial change has taken place in Australia as to their form, appearance or nature that the goods existing after the change are new and different from those existing before the change.
‘Packed’ shall mean the percentile score of the physical packing of the goods that has taken place in Australia. (NOT the packaging materials themselves)
If in calculating your ‘Buy Australian’® logo score you find that the percentage score is greater than a whole number you may use the ‘Safe Harbour’ position of indicating that the amount is > ‘greater than’ the actual whole number shown but not greater than the next whole number.
