http://www.police.nsw.gov.au/__data/...r_pointers.pdf so basically modules and labbys are fine. building your own is fine as long as its not used in public. and you cant import them.

Why cant you import a labby??

I thought the restrictions were only on battery powered pointers... You should have no problem getting a mains powered lab laser.

Or, Just get the license

Not true. You can import lasers <1mW without needing a licence - though I doubt most laser enthusiasts do.

I don't live in Australia but that just sounds cool. Or you could label them as pens ship the order with a few pens or for bigger flashlights with a maglite

Default Re: Getting a laser into australia

Basicly, any Lab laser, or laser classed as OEM, be it used in a CNC, Scanner, Medical ect are totally legal to import, regardless of mW levels. Laser parts, diodes, ect are all still legal.

The ban applies to laser pointers (hand held), and can not exceed 1mW. Even though, you could run around with a generator, and shoot at planes with 1w of DPSS green. (dont do it but)

A 200mW red laser diode pressed into a module, is still legal.

Only 1mW> Laser pointers are banned. If you really want, make the supplier change the foil sticker to <1mW, and youl be fine.

Also a few losers shined them at some athletes eyes.

I live in a small community with 2 volunteer policemen. One day I asked how can 2 men can cover the whole area. The cop told me no matter where you live 8% of the population are assholes. So in such a small community they know who the assholes are if there is trouble. There will always be a percentage of assholes to screw it up for everyone else.
