 Brown Marmorated Stink Bug – 2018-2019 Seasonal Measures

 

                                                                                                                

 

 The BMSB Season is fast approaching and DAWR in Australia have now amended their Seasonal Measures to address the impending infestation threat.

DAWR have announced amended protocol allowing that FAK containers departing from a Target Risk Country can receive treatment from an Approved Offshore Treatment Provider prior to export OR may be fumigated onshore upon arrival.

Given the changed circumstances and logistical difficulties in GERMANY, ECU Worldwide Australia have undertaken to arrange fumigation at container level on arrival into Australian Ports for all Germany consignments.

 

ETHYL BROMIDE FUMIGATION WILL BE PERFORMED ON ALL GERMANY ORIGINING FAK CONTAINERS REGARDLESS OF GOODS TYPE (TARAGET HIGH RISK, TARGET RISK OR EXCEPT). A SIGNED FORM OF CONSENT WILL BE REQUIRED FROM BOTH THE SHIPPER AND THE CONSIGNEE. WE ASK THAT ANY PARTY WISHING TO OBJECT TO FUMIGATION ON THE BASIS OF EXEMPTED CARGO, DO SO AT ORIGIN SO THAT ALTERNATIVE SHIPPING ARRANGEMENTS CAN BE MADE. WE ALSO ASK YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENCE AS CARGO RELEASE TIMES ARE LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED

 DAWR have indicated that they will release all individual shipments in an FAK based verification of a valid FCL treatment covering the full container manifest.

Goods not having undergone appropriate treatment may be subject to re-export or destruction (at the shippers’/consignees’ expense) at the discretion of the DAWR.

 

Any target high risk or target risk goods manufactured in, or shipped from these countries are subject to the BMSB seasonal measures

 

Any vessel that tranships or loads goods from these countries are also subject to heightened vessel surveillance.
