   Purpose of MeBr fumigation- QPS or OTHER
   Date of degassing is not mentioned
   Date of export……. ????
   Packing material – state the condition
   Contact information of the person who handle…

           This destination - not indicated
       Country ofis very important in
               monitoring the fumigation
          How do we find destination country
               activities
          requirements!!!!!!!!!!!!!


INCOMPLETE
        Because
           “DEGASSING
      Proposed date of export – not indicated
        ” -isof vital number of requests per day
         We a huge activity in fumigation
      Name getthe treatment provider – not given
 REQUESTSHow do we prioritize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                -AQIS needs monitoring of
         How do we find the proper treatment
                 MeBr levels @ certain
         provider to send our recommendation
                 intervals of the fumigation
                 process
 Time of fumigation is also important
       if you need fumigation supervision
Please!!!!!!!
      Mark whether you need
      supervision or not
   Some packing material are
  If you need supervision
     impermeable to MeBr
        have to inform
  youHow do you know whether
      you (Main office),
  NPQS need supervision or not
“Packing material” and
  Katunayake is
   “packing status”
      If the phytosanitory
  “Compactness” determines
      certificate should
    very important certify that
      your commodity is the MeBr
the exposure level to fumigated
      with MeBr
         treatment and
   hence the required dosage
      YES you need supervision
                                  If you need to
 Example:                         fumigate wooden
                                  pellet/ packing
  In are exporting food stuff in cardboard boxes
 You general (except for special requirements),
                                  material 
food stuff are not fumigated with poisonous MeBr
 Your export commodity: food stuff
                                  That is box
 Your fumigation commodity: cardboardthe
  If you do not clearly indicate the commodity,
                                  “commodity” for
                request may berequest :
                                    rejected
          your the MeBr fumigationMeBr fumigation
             In
                 “Commodity” means
      The commodity that you are going to fumigate
              Contact number has not
              mentioned


       Why it is so important ????

          MOST OF YOU send
!!!!! Do you aware of the optionus the
              “purpose same use”???
          request on theof MeBrday

       is scheduled

       If there’s any problem we nee
       to clarify, we have to contact
       you
       with respect to methyl bromide
Quarantine purposes
    -means the treatment is done to prevent the introduction,
     establishment and/or spread of quarantine pests
    - to ensure their official control
     (Official control : activities performed /authorized by, a national authority of
      plant, animal, environmental protection or health)
    -to meet the official requirements of the importing
      country or the exporting country
     (Official requirements :are requirements stated by, a national authority of
     plant, animal, environmental, health /stored product)


Pre-shipment purposes
    -are non-quarantine applications done within 21 days
     prior to export
      OTHER!!!!
Other purposes:

   If not a Quarantine purpose or pre-shipment purposeOTHER

   If it is Quarantine or pre-shipment purpose
           -the import permit gives you the relevant guidelines




If you have a copy of Import permit or any other official guideline of
     MeBr fumigation requirement Please attach it with the request

         That will be a great help for us in the future as well !!!

Ireland
   The use of Methyl Bromide is banned in the EU for a
    number of years and therefore the EU does not
    require the treatment of any product with methyl
    bromide in order to be permitted entry. However
    there is no problem in accepting products treated
    with Methyl Bromide from outside the EU if used
    elsewhere for quarantine purposes.
Slovakia


   Slovakia, as other EU member states, accept MrBr
    treated pallets, but the use of MB within the
    territory of EU is not allowed.

   The conditions of MB treatment should be in
    accordance with ISPM 15.
Liberia
   Liberia has stop the use of MeBr as chemical
    treatment for all agricultural commodities intended
    for export, import and internal use in the agro-
    sector since 2010.

   The alternative chemical for fumigation is "Phostoxin
    56% (aluminum phosphates)".
Mozambique

   Use of Methyl bromide fumigation is approved for
    quarantine purpose.
   Therefore wood package and pallets materials
    imported to Mozambique are required to be
    fumigated with MeBr or
   Heat treatment according to ISPM Nr 15 from IPPC.
