New Packing Declaration Formats

New packing declaration format

Under the Biosecurity Act 2015, there have been changes made to the Packing Declaration, in particular to Q.1. whereby Department of Agriculture & Water Resources (DAWR) has removed the “Prohibited Packaging Material Statement” and replaced it with the “Unacceptable Packaging Material Statement”.

DAWR will continue to accept the Prohibited Statement up till 16 June 2017, new forms are attached, and we recommend you inform your suppliers / packers of the change to ensure they comply with the new Biosecurity requirements.
