Plant Import Requirement Changes

​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Plant Biosecurity Manual Tasmania, is published in December of each year, as a new ​edition for the coming calendar year.

From time to time changes to Import Requirements need to be made at short notice. This page contains notifications of any such changes that are introduced outside of the annual edition of the manual.

Note: All Import Requirement updates throughout 2018 have been replaced or superseded by the new edition of the Manual.

Import Requirement 2 (IR2) – Fruit Fly Host Produce – Disinfestation with Methyl Bromide

In response to recent evidence of fumigation failures in fruit fly host produce from Victoria, Biosecurity Tasmania have made some significant amendments to Import Requirement 2 – Fruit Fly Host Produce – Disinfestation with Methyl Bromide.
