From 5 December 2017 to 29 January 2018 the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) invites comment on proposed changes to the Import Health Standard for Vehicles, Machinery and Equipment (formerly Vehicles, Machinery and Tyres) and related documents.

We previously consulted on this IHS in 2015. Since then, an urgent amendment to the IHS was required because of the threat of brown mamorated stink bugs. We’ve also made some other changes, including to the title of the IHS.

MPI considers that a second consultation period is warranted due to the significant modification being made to the format and contents of the draft documents and the inclusion of some new requirements (not previously consulted on in the original draft versions in 2015).
