The 2019-20 Seasonal measures surrounding the importation of targeted commodities from target risk countries is more expansive than last seasons measures due to the rapid expansion of BMSB throughout Europe and North America.
Please contact us before you place an order for your commodities to ensure all measures are in place to prevent re-export of your goods on arrival to Australia.
For the 2019-20 BMSB risk season, heightened biosecurity measures will apply to:
certain goods manufactured in, or shipped from target risk countries, and/or vessels that berth at, load or tranship from target risk countries.
The season is from 1 September 2019 and that arrives in Australian territory by 31 May 2020 (inclusive). Goods shipped between 1 September and 30 April need to be treated and will be referred for intervention if they arrive by 31 May 2020.
