Detail

All cargo and vessels arriving into Australia must be free from Biosecurity Risk Material (BRM) including soil, plants and plant material, animals and animal material, egg masses and insects. Therefore all areas of the vessel should be inspected prior to loading to minimise the risk of cross contaminating BRM free cargo on loading.
