Asian gypsy moth season strikes again

Overview

The Asian gypsy moth season is here again. A reminder to all members calling at areas considered AGM high risk to be aware of the AGM requirements issued by various governments to prevent entry of AGM into their countries.

The Asian Gypsy Moth (AGM) season has struck again. It starts from late May to September which is considered the high risk AGM period.  So a vessel which has called at a port in the regulated AGM area during the specified risk period of the current or previous year will be considered a vessel of high AGM risk. These vessels are required to comply with the relevant AGM regulations ( for example, a so-called AGM approved certificate) issued by the regulating countries, namely, Australia, Canada, Chile, USA and New Zealand. 

Members are advised to refer to our AGM section for information and guidance.
