Russia – Australia prohibits the export of luxury goods to Russia

International relations

Australia will impose further sanctions against Russia in response to Russia’s invasion on Ukraine. Australia will prohibit the supply, sale or transfer of certain luxury goods directly or indirectly to, for use in, or for the benefit of Russia.

The Autonomous Sanctions (Export Sanctioned Goods—Russia) Amendment (No.1) Designation 2022 (the Designation) designates certain luxury goods as ‘export sanctioned goods’ for Russia.

The Designation will commence on 7 April 2022.

The goods designated by the Designation are described by reference to codes in the Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC). The AHECC is available on the Australian Bureau of Statistics website.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs made the Designation under subregulation 4(3) of the Autonomous Sanctions Regulations 2011.

Details of sanctions that Australia imposes against Russia, including of other ‘export sanctioned goods’ for Russia, are available at Russia sanctions regime.
