Biosecurity Solutions

 

Biosecurity is a topic that is taken very seriously by the Ministry for Primary Industries (formerly MAF BNZ).
Businesses wishing to receive imported goods on their site must comply with Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) requirements.

The AgriChain Centre can assist you in achieving MPI Compliance for your facility or business.

BIOSECURITY SOLUTION OPTIONS FOR ESTABLISHED SEA CONTAINER SITES

Your site will need to be officially inspected by MPI staff in order to meet Biosecurity regulations.

The AgriChain Centre is able to advise you on how to get your site “Biosecurity Ready” and act as your internal auditor. An internal audit is one of the requirements for Transitional Facilities under the Biosecurity Act. We can provide the following options.

  • An Internal Audit / Check
  • A new Facility Operating Manual
  • An updated Operating Manual for your “New Imported Sea Container Site (Non Risk Goods) Site” (established sites)
  • An updated Operating Manual for your “New Risk Goods And Imported Sea Container Site” (established sites)
  • Tailored In-house Accredited Person training course at a preferential rate (minimum 6 people)
  • Site Assessments, including written reports

We can review and update any manual we orginally developed for you within two years of having completed the original work, at a preferential rate. Any older manuals will have to be treated as a new project, as a result of the regulations constantly evolving.
