We recognise that services need to be delivered in a manner which is tailored to suit the individual requirements of each of our clients.
New Zealand has strict biosecurity requirements for goods being imported and exported, and for good reason. The introduction of pests and diseases to our shores pose serious health and environment hazards. Regardless of vessel or cargo type, Flick Anticimex knows how to eradicate the pests allowing you to meet the strict requirements as set by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).
The types of pests that are more commonly found hiding in vessels or cargo loads include:
- Pest beetles
Companies operating with vessels or cargo types coming in and out of New Zealand shores must ensure that they:
- keep decks, holds free of standing water (to prevent mosquito breeding);
- clean spills, residue or debris;
- properly store foods and dispose of garbage;
- report any sighting of pests on the vessel; and
- comply with the MPI Standard 'Requirements for Vessels Arriving in New Zealand'.
Failure to declare biosecurity risk goods imported to New Zealand can result in a $400 NZD fine if risk good was imported/exported unintentionally, or a maximum fine up to $100,000 NZD and/or 5 years imprisonment if risk good was imported/exported intentionally.
