Offshore BMSB treatment providers scheme

The Australian Department of Agriculture and the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries have introduced a joint Offshore BMSB Treatment Providers Scheme (the scheme).

The scheme sets out the minimum registration and compliance requirements for treatment providers conducting BMSB treatments on goods bound for Australia and/or New Zealand during the 2019–20 BMSB risk season.

Treatment providers who meet the scheme requirements will be added to the 2019-20 list of approved offshore BMSB treatment providers

Treatment providers previously registered during the 2018-19 BMSB Season

Treatment providers that were registered under the scheme during the 2018-19 BMSB season must complete a renewal application for the 2019-20 season.

Treatment providers in target risk countries

All BMSB treatment providers in target risk countries must register and be approved under the scheme to be able to conduct BMSB treatments. Treatments conducted by an unapproved treatment provider in a target risk country will not be recognised as valid and the goods will be directed for onshore treatment (if permitted) or export.

Treatment providers in non-target risk countries

Treatment providers in non-target risk countries who intend to conduct BMSB treatments for goods that are manufactured in any of the target risk counties are also encouraged to register under the scheme.

Treatment certificates from providers in non-target risk countries who do not register will be accepted, however these goods will be subject to increased intervention compared to those treated by approved treatment providers. Treatment providers in non-target risk countries who perform multiple BMSB treatments during the season must join the scheme. If unregistered treatment providers continue to treat and present treatment certificates throughout the season and have not made any effort to register, future treated goods may be exported or destroyed.

Companies seeking to register multiple branches/locations

There are two options for companies seeking to register multiple branches/locations under the scheme:

  1. If each branch/location operates independently and manages its own staff, equipment, workload management, treatment records and treatment certification, then each branch/location must submit a separate application. Each branch must also provide documentary evidence that it meets all of the department’s minimum equipment requirements.
  2. If all branches/locations use a central office to manage all staff, equipment, workload management, treatment records and treatment certification, only one application should be submitted. The address of the central office will be listed on the department’s webpage.

Treatment companies with multiple company branches/locations must submit separate applications for each branch.

Applications to become an approved 2019-20 offshore BMSB treatment provider

Applications to join the 2019-20 Offshore BMSB treatment providers scheme are now open for new and renewing treatment providers.

2019-20 list of approved offshore BMSB treatment providers

Legislative basis

This list is referenced in section 48A of the Biosecurity (Prohibited and Conditionally Non-prohibited Goods) Determination 2016, section 43 of the Biosecurity (Prohibited and Conditionally Non-prohibited Goods—Christmas Island) Determination 2016, section 44 of the Biosecurity (Prohibited and Conditionally Non-prohibited Goods—Cocos (Keeling) Islands) Determination 2016, and section 43 of the Biosecurity (Prohibited and Conditionally Non-prohibited Goods—Norfolk Island) Determination 2016.​

List of approved treatment providers

Treatment providers included on the below list are registered under the scheme and have demonstrated their capacity to conduct BMSB treatments for the 2019-20 BMSB season. The list will be updated as required.

The column titled treatment capabilities’ details the types of goods that each company is capable of treating. This information has been provided by the individual company involved and may be subject to change. Where there is no treatment capability indicated, the treatment provider has not indicated their treatment capabilities to the department. This does not mean that the treatment provider is not capable of delivering treatments of this kind. You should confirm the treatment capability with the company concerned. The three categories included in the ‘treatment capabilities’ column correspond to the following descriptions:

  • Containers: the company can treat containerised cargo at the whole container level
  • Break bulk: the company can treat goods to be shipped as break bulk, in open top containers or on flat rack containers
  • Individual goods: the company can treat individual goods using stack or chamber treatment methods.
  • Indoor treatments: the company can conduct BMSB treatments indoors.

BMSB treatment provider status categories

Acceptable

An offshore BMSB treatment provider has no current restrictions for conducting BMSB treatments on goods for export to Australia and/or New Zealand. Treatment certificates are accepted. Consignments are dealt with according to the relevant BMSB seasonal measures and/or import conditions.

Suspended

An offshore BMSB treatment provider will be ‘suspended’ from the scheme if flawed treatment practices or fraudulent documentation are detected. A treatment provider may also be suspended if it fails a desk-top or on-site audit conducted by the department or the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries Treatment certificates are not accepted from a treatment provider as of the date it is listed as 'suspended' on the department’s webpage and there is no allowance for goods in transit. Consignments must be either:

  • re-treated on arrival (if permitted)
  • exported.

Withdrawn

An offshore BMSB treatment provider may apply for ‘withdrawn’ status if it no longer wishes to participate in the scheme. Treatment certificates issued prior to the listed withdrawal date will be accepted. Treatment certificates issued on or after the withdrawal date will not be accepted. Consignments must be either:

  • re-treated on arrival (if permitted)
  • exported

In-transit policy

Consignments or goods are classified as ‘in-transit’ when they have left the country of origin but have not yet been cleared through the border in Australia. When an offshore BMSB treatment provider is no longer considered ‘acceptable’, the department enacts its ‘in-transit’ policy.

Industry will be notified that a treatment provider has been classified as ‘suspended’ through an Industry Advice Notice (IAN) and a change of status published on this webpage and the Summary of recent changes to the offshore BMSB treatment providers webpage.

All BMSB treatment certification issued by a treatment provider classified as ‘suspended’ will be considered unacceptable from the date the suspension is published on the department’s webpages, regardless of the date of treatment or date of issue on the certificate. This includes certification issued both before and after the change in their status.

The date published on the department’s webpage is to notify industry that from this date the department no longer considers the identified treatment provider as performing effective treatments and will no longer accept any certification from these companies. It does not relate in any way to the date on the certificate.

Example 1

The department has evidence that BMSB treatments being performed offshore by ‘Company A’ are ineffective. The department determines that the company should be suspended and notifies industry of the change in approval status via an IAN on 2 September 2018. As the department is not confident of the effectiveness of treatments performed by ‘Company A’, all certificates must be considered unacceptable, irrespective of the date printed on the certificate. This implies that any consignments treated by ‘Company A’ which have not yet been released from biosecurity control will be immediately considered as having an unacceptable treatment certificate. The consignment must be retreated onshore or exported from Australia.

Example 2

On 4 September 2018 a customs broker presents to the department a treatment certificate from ‘Company A’ to support the clearance of a consignment. A check of the scheme webpage finds that ‘Company A’ was suspended on 2 September 2018. The treatment certificate indicates that the treatment took place on 19 August 2018, prior to the company being placed ‘under investigation’. As the department has evidence that treatments being performed by ‘Company A’ are ineffective and the treatment certificate was assessed by the customs broker after the treatment provider was suspended, the certificate cannot be accepted. The consignment must be retreated onshore (if permitted) or exported.

If a treatment providers status is returned to ‘acceptable’ following a suspension, only certificates with a treatment date on or after the date their ‘acceptable’ status is returned are acceptable. The date recently reinstated treatment provider was reinstated can be found in the summary of recent changes webpage.
