DAWE announce changes to 2021/2022 Seasonal Measures for Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB)

Further to last month’s newsletter (2021/2022 Seasonal Measures for Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB)) ACA International has received advice from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) of changes to the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) seasonal measures for the 2021-2022 season.

DAWE have removed tariff chapters 36 and 93 from target high risk goods list and removed tariff chapters 25, 26, 31, 46 and 47 from target risk goods list.

Target high risk goods shipped between 1 September 2021 and 30 April 2022 (inclusive) require mandatory treatment.

Target risk goods will not require mandatory treatment.  Target risk goods will however be subject to increased onshore intervention through random inspection.

You can view what goods are subject to the measure here.

We will bring you more information as it comes to hand.  Please contact your ACA representative if you have any questions regarding the upcoming BMSB Season.
