All vehicles, machinery and parts
Import Health Standard for Vehicles, Machinery and Parts. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 32
Proposed layout and usability improvements: The layout has been changed to give importers greater assurance around the types of vehicles, machinery and parts captured by the requirements of the Standard, especially brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) management requirements; and The Standard is now solely based on commodity types without designated sections for BMSB management or used vehicles, machinery and parts ; and The specific commodity type lists (Schedule 1) have been expanded to provide as much inclusion and exclusion examples as possible.
Proposed changes to measures:
Moldova, Portugal and the Ukraine have been included as BMSB risk countries. Three changes relating to BMSB management including; the removal of new vehicle type exclusions, mandatory submission of a declaration linked to exclusion criteria for some new commodities and minor changes to the residual insecticide treatment option for importers of aircraft and watercraft. Three changes relating to the more general import pathway for vehicles, machinery and parts. All changes are separately listed and discussed in the supporting risk management proposal
