Working proactively with MPI to manage risk
Effectively managing the risk of an invasive hitchhiker pest like BMSB requires all parties in the biosecurity system to be involved in delivering pre-border, border and post border interventions.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has been engaging with a number of stakeholders, including KVH, to manage the risk of BMSB entering New Zealand.
An update on these activities, focused on pre-border and border initiatives is now available on the KVH website.
This includes pre-shipment treatment requirements, awareness activities with major shippers and interventions.
