New Zealand supports working group on Minimizing pest movement by sea containers

Posted on Fri, 06 Aug 2010, 10:10

Loading sea containersA donation of USD 50,000 from New Zealand's Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) will finance an expert working group (EWG) to prepare a draft standard on "Minimizing pest movement by sea containers and conveyances in international trade".

Sea containers (i.e. 20- and 40-foot intermodal freight or shipping containers) are a significant pathway for the potential entry of pests, as they are now the most common means of transfer of internationally traded goods and moving personal effects.

Nominations are being sought for experts to participate in the EWG (deadline extended to 30 October).
