Apply for a licence

The Rice Marketing Board invites interested parties to participate in the domestic rice market by becoming an Authorised Buyer, as defined under the Rice Marketing Act 1983.

The Board has granted Ricegrowers Limited the sole and exclusive right to export rice at this time. The Board will therefore not licence an applicant as an Authorised Buyer of NSW rice unless it is satisfied that the rice is intended exclusively for domestic use (in Australia).

An application pack is available by clicking here, or by emailing the Board at

We offer translation and interpreter services on request.
