Why is the Fumigation Certificate required when you imported?

Why is the Fumigation Certificate required when you imported?


A fumigation certificate, frequently referred to as a pest-control certificate, is a document used to confirm that all wooden packing materials in a cargo shipment have been fumigated.

Materials that require sterilization or fumigation before international shipping are raw wood items such as wood pallets or crates, wool, dunnages, and drums. However, wood-derived products like cardboards, particleboard (chipboard), and other man-made materials are exempt.

A fumigation certificate is compulsory when shipping international or ocean freight cargo. Failure to comply with these measures risks your cargo not being sent, liquidated, or quarantined upon arrival in other ports.


AMJ can provide timber reveals for windows&doors, so some projects required windows&doors pre-installed timber reveals at AMJ factory, before the container gets loaded to the vessel, it requires to get goods fumigated and there will be fumigation certificate to provide clients for the local port custom clearance.


Why is the Fumigation Certificate Required?


International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM 15) were introduced in 2002 to standardize wooden packaging phytosanitary measures. Previously, global trade was impeded by a complex range of restrictions required by different authorities. ISPM 15 measures set out a standard required for all exporters that aim to halt the spread of vermin by treating all wooden packaging.

These measures were enforced because insects and fungi residing in the shipping timber of wood, can spread out into forests and wetlands, causing devastation to trees and plants. With millions of wood paletts being shipped internationally per day to facilitate the import and export of goods, this poses a considerable problem for the conservation of wildlands.


When is a Fumigation Certificate Required


International trading partners are adopting ISPM15 into their import regulations. The National Plant Protection Organization of the United States (NPPO) and the United States Department of Agriculture have worked with the wood packaging material industry to develop an export program that meets global import requirements.

This program works to ensure wood packaging materials for international trade are certified when treated. A key aspect of compliance within this program ensures materials are traceable to their origin.


here is the Australian Quarantine regulations for fumigating 20 ft / 40ft shipping containers of personal effects / household goods and commercial cargo containing wood / timber / bamboo

Prescribed minimum concentration of Methyl Bromide (CH3Br) for various temperatures

( except under vacuum - see note 2 below )


48 g/m3 ( 3 lbs / 1000 cu ft) for 24 hours at minimum of 21 deg C (70 deg F) or above

56 g/m3 (3.5 lbs / 1000 cu ft) for 24 hours at minimum of 16 deg C

64 g/m3 (4 lbs / 1000 cu ft) for 24 hours at minimum of 11 deg C

72 g/m3 ( 4.5 lbs / 1000 cu ft) for 24 hours at minimum of 6 deg C

80 g/m3 (5 lbs / 1000 cu ft) for 24 hours at minimum of 1 deg C


Notes:

1. Treatments undertaken below 0 degrees Celsius will not be accepted

2. Methyl Bromide under vacuum is only acceptable if applied at

64 g/m3 for 4 hours at 21 degrees C or above under vaccum ( 660 mm vacuum)

64 g/m3 for 5 hours at a minimum of 4 degrees C under vaccum ( 660 mm vacuum)

3. In most cicumstances the minimum concentration required for barrier concerns is 48 g/m3 CH3Br. However, AQIS has granted one exemption. Due to Environment Health Authority (EHA) requirements in Singapore, it is against the law to fumigate with Methyl Bromide at rates above 40 g/m3. Should an accredited person receive a certificate at this rate the time exposure must be a minimum of 30 hours to compensate for the lower rate. Should a Singapore certificate state the normal recognised rate of 48 g/m3 CH3Br for 24 hours then this should be accepted. Please note this exemption applies to SINGAPORE only

4. Accredited persons must not accept certificates which state that a treatment in excess of 128 g/m3 of Methyl Bromide has been applied. Such certificates are to be referred to AQIS for consideration.
