Department of Agriculture Focus Resources on Intercepting Khapra Beetle

Back in August the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) intercepted khapra beetle in imported non-food goods, such as refrigerators, car parts, nuts and bolts, as well as empty containers and high-risk food goods such as spices and flour.

In further response DAWE is now diverting a number of staff to the emergency response, in particular inspections and treatments required at a number of locations around the country.  They issued this notice advising that the diversion of resources could have an adverse effect on delivery of other services, including processing of shipments and inspections (Import Industry Advice Notice 204-2020).

Should any of your shipments be impacted by any delay an ACA representative will contact you.
