Customer Advisory: Newly Imposed Regulation in Brazil - Wooden Packaging Material
To Our Valued Customers,
We would like to inform you that the Brazil Ministry of Agriculture has imposed a regulation effective February 1st 2016 (Bill of Lading issue date) that requires cargo to/from Brazil, including freight remaining on board and transshipment cargo, to include information about wooden packaging material.
Should the container include wood packaging, Shippers will be responsible to provide wood packaing information at the time of the Shipping Instruction submission.
1) What type of wooden package material was included?
a. Treated and Certified; (Treated material and/or fumigated with certification)
b. Processed; (Processed material)
c. Not Treated and Not Certified (Non treated material and/or fumigated with certification)
2) For Shipping Instructions received without wood packing material information, carriers will consider that new regulation is "not applicable" to your shipment.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact your local Laufer representative.
We thank you, as always, for your continued support.
