Forest Products Export Standards - Phytosanitary Requirements of Australia
Dear Exporters of Forestry Products to Australia,
On the evening of Sunday 11th of November, Arhopalus ferus (burn pine longhorn beetle, BPL) exceeded an agreed threshold at Marsden Point. This means the BPL season for 2012/13 commences as of 6.30pm tonight, Monday 12th of November. After this period of time all consignments that are subject of the BPL regulation have to be treated before departure in order to ensure access to Australia.
At commencement of the flight season (i.e. 6.30pm Monday 12th of November):
1. Consignments already loaded onto vessels are exempt from fumigation. (MPI will inform DAFF of any vessel that have consignments of timber loaded on 11th and 12th of November. AQIS can then subject these vessels to increased surveillance)
2. Consignments already loaded and sealed into containers are exempt from fumigation. (MPI will inform DAFF of any vessel that have consignments of timber loaded on the 11th and 12th of November. AQIS can then subject these consignments to increased surveillance)
Please ensure that you observe the conditions governing entry of forestry produce subject to BPL regulation to Australia. These conditions can be found at:
For any questions please contact your IVA in the first instance.
