Australian Fumigation Accreditation Scheme
In response to the high quarantine risk posed by ineffective fumigation treatments performed offshore, DAFF Biosecurity developed the Australian Fumigation Accreditation Scheme (AFAS).
- A management system run by participating overseas government agencies to ensure continued compliance of fumigators with the requirements of the AQIS Methyl Bromide Fumigation Standard
- A training and accreditation system for fumigators and regulatory officers
- A registration system for fumigation companies
- Acceptance by Australia of fumigation certificates issued under AFAS.
AFAS objectives are to:
- Provide capacity building assistance to overseas regulatory officers, in respect to registering, monitoring and auditing fumigation companies.
- Improve the technical expertise of overseas fumigators and regulatory officers by providing world's best practice methyl bromide fumigation training.
- Assist fumigators to maintain a high standard of fumigation performance and compliance with DAFF Biosecurity requirements.
