The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry registers facilities as approved offshore treatment providers for ethylene oxide (ETO) treatments.
Consignments treated by approved offshore ETO treatment providers must meet all import conditions and permit requirements. These can be found on the department's Biosecurity Import Conditions system (BICON).
Treatment providers that have demonstrated their capacity to conduct ETO treatments effectively will be listed as approved on the List of treatment providers.
The evaluation process to become an approved offshore ETO treatment provider includes an assessment of:
- applicant’s capacity to operate in accordance with relevant departmental requirements based on supporting documentary evidence
- physical structures and operational procedures used by the applicant to determine their effectiveness in addressing various biosecurity risks.
