In November 2016, the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources began a pilot program under the
compliance-based inspection scheme (CBIS) for lemons and limes sourced from the United States of America (USA). The trial was successfully completed in February 2017 and the commodity will be fully implemented onto the CBIS from November 2017. The compliance history of importers who participated in the trial will also carry over. More information about the CBIS.
