Biosecurity Tasmania wish to advise that existing Import Requirement 2 in
relation to fruit fly host product entering Tasmania has been modified to
ensure risk produce is fumigated at a higher temperature.
The revised Import Requirement 2 - Fruit Fly Host Produce - Disinfestation with Methyl Bromide is effective as of 2 March 2018.
This is being implemented as a precautionary measure in a bid to further
mitigate risk under current unusual Queensland fruit fly pressure.
This requirement along with others related to fruit fly risk mitigation will
continue to be reviewed as per routine practice to ensure requirements are
appropriate to the risk.
Details can be found at the Biosecurity Tasmania website.
