Notice of change Import Requirement 2 - Fruit fly host produce - Disinfestation with Methyl Bromide (March 2018)

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.
