A Perth man has been charged with child exploitation offences following a joint investigation between law enforcement in Australia and the US.

The Western Australia Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team received a referral from Homeland Security Investigations in the US in June, relating to the alleged online activities of the 36-year-old Perth man.

This led to a number of electronic devices being seized from a home in Mt Helena, in Perth's outer northeast, which allegedly belong to the man and contain child exploitation material.

He has been charged with using a carriage service for child pornography materials which has a maximum penalty of 15 years imprisonment.

He will face Perth Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
