BMSB Season 2021-2022

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has proposed the BMSB 2021-22 seasonal measures will apply to target vehicles, machinery and parts (VPM) exported from risk countries, on or after, 1 September 2021 and 30 April 2022 (inclusive), and to vessels that berth, load, or tranship from target risk countries within the same period.

BMSB target goods must be fumigated offshore before arriving to New Zealand. All shipments from Italy require treatment before arrival in New Zealand despite commodity and container type.

A full list of countries under the NZ BSMB measures can be found here.

Treatment of vehicles, machinery, and parts will only comply with BMSB measures if treatment is carried out by an MPI approved offshore treatment provider prior to arrival in NZ.

BMSB requirements for sea container from Italy;

Italy is a country with large BMSB populations and increased associated risk. Containers and their contents must be treated with an MPI-approved treatment provider, prior to arrival in NZ

Therefore, no types of vehicles, machinery and parts (includes new tyres) are eligible for BMSB management exclusions under the Import Health Standard.

Should you have any questions about the up and coming 2021-22 BMSB seasonal measures within Australia and New Zealand, please do not hesitate to contact your sales representative.
