Further to update provided in NNF 2018/199 we received the following advice from the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources advising us the Final measures for the 2018-19 BMSB season have now been published on the BMSB webpage.

 

We have now included an additional page, Preparing to import during the BMSB, to assist industry on the requirements to manage the seasonal measures prior to exporting goods to Australia. The treatment rates have also been published on the main BMSB webpage. As noted in the recent update, the approved offshore treatment providers for the Offshore BMSB Treatment Providers Scheme. Please note this list will be updated as we add more approved treatment providers.

An Industry Advice Notice will be issued tomorrow to advise that the final measures have been published on the BMSB webpage.

More updates to the BMSB webpage will be made later this week, including details for onshore management of goods and scenarios from queries that we have been receiving from industry to assist importers and brokers before the season commences.

We will continue to make updates to the BMSB webpage and will advise as these changes are made. As advised, we are preparing for industry sessions (either face-to-face or webinars or a combination of both) for the week commencing 13 August 2018 and will provide these details soon.

Thank you again for your patience and the continued support you have provided to the department in preparation for the 2018-19 BMSB season.
