Inspection Fact Sheets and BMSB updates
Freight and Trade Alliance (FTA) in our regular dialogue with the Department of Agriculture ( the department) have been requesting that more detailed information around the BMSB season and particularly the operational and treatment issues are provided to industry by way of the web site.
We have also had discussions with their inspections team as regards delays that members have been experiencing. To that end we can advise that senior management from the department are currently working with both their bookings and inspection teams to minimise delays in allocating inspections.
We have also been advised by members that treatment providers offshore are receiving conflicting information from various sources in Australia. We again provide the below links to the published treatment procedures and consignment suitability fact sheets for sharing with your overseas agents and offshore treatment providers.
