All target risk goods shipped from the above countries between 1st September 2021 and 30th April 2022 will require treatment for BMSB. The treatment providers list has been updated  for the current season and is available via the link below. Please note any providers who were approved last year
have had to re-apply, therefore  approved providers from last year may not be approved for the upcoming  season. This list is constantly being updated as new providers receive approval.

Only certificates from an approved treatment provider will be acceptable. 

Please also be aware that the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment has indicated that the following countries have been identified as emerging risk countries and are subject to
heightened measures this year.

Belarus, Malta, Sweden, United Kingdom, and Chile.

This does not mean target goods from these countries will require treatment prior to shipment to Australia, however goods shipped from these countries will be subject to increased Quarantine
inspections on arrival. These increased inspections will be carried out at the importers expense.

Kind regards,
