         (2)   This regulation applies to goods, including publications, that:

      (2B)   For paragraph (2) (f), publications and any other goods do not advocate the doing of a terrorist act if they depict or describe a terrorist act, but the depiction or description could reasonably be considered to be done merely as part of public discussion or debate or as entertainment or satire.

                (a)    refusing to give a permission; or

               (b)    giving a permission subject to conditions; or

                (c)    revoking a permission.

         (9)   The Attorney‑General may certify in writing that in his or her opinion it is in the public interest that a decision to give or refuse to give a permission should be made solely by the Attorney‑General and should not be reviewable by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

       (10)   The Attorney‑General must give a copy of a certificate under subregulation (9) to the person who sought the permission.

       (11)   A certificate must include a statement of the grounds on which the certificate is issued.

                (a)    a statement to the effect that application may be made to the Tribunal under the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act 1975 for review of the decision to which the notice relates; and

4              Exportation of goods mentioned in Schedule 1 (asbestos)

         (1)   The exportation from Australia of asbestos, or goods mentioned in Part 1 of Schedule 1 that contain asbestos, is prohibited unless:

         (2)   However, subregulation (1) does not prohibit exportation from Australia of goods, containing asbestos, that are incorporated into other goods in a way that does not constitute a risk to users until the asbestos in the goods is disturbed.

         (3)   For paragraphs (1) (b), (c) and (d):

                (a)    both:
