Offshore BMSB Treatment Providers Scheme: reinstatement of Italian heat treatment providers

Three Italian offshore Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) Treatment providers, who were suspended by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources Department ( DAWR ) in December 2018,  have now been reinstated for heat treatment at origin.                                                                                                                                                                               

The Italian fumigators have introduced strict rules on how cargo should be packed within containers, in order to ensure heat treatment can be completed thoroughly and avoid further treatment providers being suspended.
