Conclusion of the 2022-23 Brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) Risk Season

Dear Valued Customers & Partners,

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) has announced the conclusion of the 2022-23 Brown marmorated Stink bug (BMSB) risk season advising,

Goods shipped on board or vessels departing from BMSB identified target risk countries on or after 1 May 2023, will no longer be subject to the BMSB seasonal measures including the Seasonal Pest Inspection (SPI) on arrival.

Target high risk goods manufactured in or shipped from target risk countries, that are shipped on board vessels between 1 September 2022 and 30 April 2023 are subject to BMSB measures on arrival, regardless of the arrival date.

Importers are reminded that it is their responsibility to continue to ensure that any goods imported, are free of biosecurity risk material throughout the year, not just during periods of heightened seasonal measures.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your SILA Sales representative to discuss further.

Thank you,
