Case Study I: Australia :
Australian Quarantine Inspection Service (AQIS) has a strict priority in admitting risk material into the country. AQIS regards used mining, construction, earthmoving and agricultural machinery as high risk because it is prone to contamination by soil, seeds and other foreign matter – that could introduce exotic pest and diseases.
Importing permits, cleanliness certificates, quarantine inspection and cleaning are required. The pre-shipment inspection is a benefit and a bonus to importers since it relieves and avoids the burden of re-exportation of the good which could amount to exorbitant and significant financial costs.
Importers must ensure all machinery is cleaned offshore prior to shipment.
National Trades and Agencies International Wing can assist the importer in arranging partial of full dismantling, scheduling the cargo for pressure washing prior to departure, ensuring that all possible sites of contamination are cleaned from mud, if necessary, painted, before loading.
Case Study II: New Zealand :
The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) is the government agency in New Zealand that protects the country’s borders from foreign contaminants that could potentially damage main industries.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry requires all cargo be clear of any contaminating material and pests prior to arrival. The same is the case with other countries regarding packaging standards to insure bio-security clearance.
