I want to import some threatre equitment (pipe and drape) from the USA. Is there a standard I have to meet or some regulatory body that has to check the safety of this product before I use it at my events? Thanks
There are no requirements that theatrical props have to meet upon import.
As these are being shipped ex the US I would encourage you to check the actual origin of the props as they may qualify for AUST/US Free Trade and thus be Duty Free. Refer to the customs website or the dfat website for more details.
Then you should co ordinate the import via an Aust freight forwarder to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of with fees upon arrival
