Phase 6A:  New measures for target risk containers

The New Measures (in addition to previously notified on the 5th of March 2021)
Who the new measures affect and from when:
    Containers packed in a Khapra Beetle Target Risk Country (all commodities)
    Exported on or after the 12th July 2021
    Container is unpacked in a Rural Grain Growing Area of Australia

What is required:

Target risk containers must be treated offshore and accompanied by a valid treatment certificate from a permitted treatment provider.

Information regarding approved treatment options, permitted offshore treatment providers and required treatment certification can be found on the Department of Agriculture’s website:

Failure to treat target risk sea containers offshore will result in immediate export of the container at your own cost.  

We will provide additional information as it comes to hand.  If this affects you, please ensure this information is passed onto your suppliers and ensure offshore treatment is correctly treated by an approved treatment provider to prevent delays in processing upon arrival in Australia.
