End of BMSB Season

2019 - 2020 in Australia

For the 2019-20 BMSB risk season, heightened biosecurity measures will apply to certain goods manufactured in, or shipped from target risk countries, and/or vessels that berth at, load or tranship from target risk countries.


The measures apply to goods shipped from 1 September 2019 that arrive in Australian territory by 31 May 2020 (inclusive).

Goods shipped between 1 September 2019 and 30 April 2020 need to be treated, and will be referred for intervention if they arrive by 31 May 2020 (inclusive).

For goods that are shipped prior to 30 April 2020 and arrive after 31 May 2020, they may be subject to intervention as required.
