Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Season 2017-18
                                                                                   
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources has now published its formal Import Industry Advice Notice 76-2017 - Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Season 2017-18 (refer below link).
This notice is of interest to importers associated with the importation of targeted break bulk and vehicles, boats, machinery and machinery parts from 1 September 2017 to 30 April 2018 inclusive.
What has changed?
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources has developed measures to manage the 2017‑18 seasonal risk of Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) infestations in sea cargo shipped from the United States and on high risk pathways originating in Europe.
The 2017-18 BMSB measures will continue to apply to target goods arriving from the United States, and will now include target goods from Italy shipped from 1 September 2017 to 30 April 2018 inclusive. The target goods season dates, treatments, and requirements for management of target goods are unchanged.
In addition, heightened inspections will apply to target goods from other European countries where BMSB is known to be established in order to monitor emerging risk of importation of BMSB on those pathways.
