The Department of Agriculture have issued revised measures in regard to the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug on imports to Australia from the USA.
We should start to see consignments arriving that have been treated before they depart the USA (all ports). If the cargo is not treated is must be treated within 48 hours of discharge in Australia.
These pre-treatment measures should see turnaround times and additional costs reduced to a normal level.
These measures will stay in place until April/May 2015.
Please contact us for further up to date information regarding these new Dept. of Ag. measures.
