I like your optimism. My last import was meticulously cleaned but someone decided I needed to be charged more to clean my already clean car,
So if some smart pencil pusher thinks your new pride and joy may contain asbestos how is anyone going to stop them investigating?

CAUTION. Will spontaneously talk cars

A reputable importer will hopefully be working on a solution and for the time being, that may be not to import anything as per the original post. People are caught up in a transition period at the moment because the customs people have been kicked in the arse and told to do their job properly and that has caught a few people out. At the end of the day it will probably add a couple of hundred dollars to the cost of importing a car to get the testing a certification done before the car goes on the boat or as I suggested earlier, to remove all suspect components.

Apparently this asbestos rule has been in for around 3 years now,It is also worth noting that other countries have similar rules re asbestos
