Changes to the Quarantine Packing Declaration

November 30th, 2017.

As Importers are aware, Packing Declarations are required for all containerised sea freight shipments.

A new packing declaration has been created to include the use of bamboo packaging material. The old format will expire on 30th June 2018. 

Importers should communicate this change with their Suppliers and ensure the new template is utilised for all future shipments. 

This is a great opportunity for Importers to setup Annual Packing Declarations with their suppliers, which removes the need to produce a declaration per shipment.
