About this variation application form
Under Section 81B of the Customs Act 1901 (the Customs Act) the Comptroller-General of Customs (Comptroller-General) may, on application by

a) omitting the description of the place that is described in the licence and substituting a description of another place; or
b) altering the description of the place that is described in the licence.
Under subsection 81B(2) of the Customs Act, the warehouse licence holder must apply for the variation in writing. Under subsection 81B(4), the
Comptroller-General must not vary a licence if, in the Comptroller-General’s opinion the physical security of the warehouse would not be adequate,

adopted to ensure the security of the goods in the place.
All questions must be answered in a comprehensive manner. (Any misleading information could jeopardise the grant of the variation).
