The role of an Accredited Person is an important one to New Zealand. New Zealand is an isolated country and with the increase of global trade this places pressure on our biosecurity systems, especially those involved in devanning containers. An Accredited Person plays an important role ensuring that exotic pests do not become established in our country. Anything out of the ordinary for a sea container is to be reported to MPI:
- Live organisms – Call 0800 809 966
- Fungus or contamination or wood packaging
- Other biosecurity contamination to be swept and placed in a quarantine bin (check your training material)
- Non-ISPM 15 wood packaging material
- Other restricted packaging materials e.g. straw or used tyres
Courses are available in all centers from Auckland to Christchurch however they’re in high demand – don’t miss out, book today.
If you’re interested in having our team at your facility to provide training please contact us today.
