|Class 3||Flammable Liquids||perfumes (Beauty category|
|Class 4||Flammable Solids||matches (Outdoor category)|
|Class 5||Oxidising Substances and Organic Peroxides||fertilisers (Garden category)|

|Class 7||Radioactive Materials|
|Class 8||Corrosives||(Electronics category)|
|Class 9||Miscellaneous||magnets that can produce a compass deflection of 2° at a distance of 2.1 metres, individual batteries|
Australia Post maintains a reference guide which you should familiarise yourself with: https://auspost.com.au/content/dam/auspost_corp/media/documents/dangerous-and-prohibited-goods-guide.pdf.
Exempt quantities or packaging does not change the status of the good as a Dangerous Goods which is why we require these products to be flagged. For example, batteries are considered a Dangerous Good. However, it may be exempt from this prohibition if packaged in a certain way. Regardless, we still must capture whether the product is a Dangerous Good.
