As a result of numerous interceptions of the brown marmorated stink bug coming into Australia, the Australian Department of Agriculture has released new pre-shipment fumigation requirements for all shipments, including break bulk, containerized vehicles, boats, machinery, automotive parts and tires moving from the United States into Australia.

Australia Fumigation Requirements

Effective February 23rd, 2015, all cargo departing the US is required to be fumigated prior to shipping to Australia. This mandatory requirement is extended to ALL US PORTS beginning March 9th, 2015 forward.

Types of cargo effected:

  • machinery
  • vehicles
  • vessels
  • boats
  • automotive parts
  • tires
  • break bulk containers


  • Must be treated prior to shipping
  • Must have certificate of efficacy, specifying treatment completion
  • Must pass on-arrival inspection as determined by the Australian Department of Agriculture

Mandatory treatments MUST BE applied to:

  • all break bulk vehicles (including boats), machinery, automotive parts within 72 hours prior to loading
  • containerized shipments of vehicles (including boats), machinery, automotive parts, and tires within 21 days prior to shipment providing containers are immediately sealed and arrive in Australia “seals intact”.

These emergency measures will be in place until at least the end of April 2015.
