Germany Photo 1

As with last ‘season’ (2018-19) Germany remains one of 33 countries dubbed ‘Actionable Countries’ by MPI.

That’s to say Germany has a sizeable population of Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs, none of which we want to see here.

Overall the risk of an infestation arriving from Germany has been accessed as being less than say Italy.

MPI NZ Regulations (01st Sept 2019 – 30th April 2020) in respect to Germany, targets the commodities posing the most risk.

Top of the list are second-hand products.

These will need to be fumigated at origin, our agents’ terminal (pictured)

If you are in any doubt as to whether your goods could be ones requiring fumigation in Hamburg, please contact us i.e. Jamie This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we’ll do our best to clarify your situation.

Alternatively, you can enquire directly with MPI at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

As you would appreciate ultimately MPI make any ruling.

Local MPI inspection upon arrival may also lead to shipments requiring fumigation. 

Note: the same BMSB rules that apply to Germany are also in place from other major European countries, including: Spain, Switzerland, France, Austria, Turkey, Czech Republic, Netherlands etc.
