Facility operators and accredited persons
Facilities receiving containers must have:
- an MPI-approved facility operator
- at least one trained, accredited person (AP).
The facility operator is the person who will have overall responsibility for the facility.
Facilities receiving containers (air freight and all sea containers) must also have enough accredited persons (APs) available to check containers and goods. Accredited persons are responsible for inspecting containers, supervising their unpacking and containing any biosecurity risks found.
Airports and accredited persons
Airports receiving air containers conveying international baggage must have trained accredited persons actively supervising the unloading of baggage from air containers.
The airport or airline service provider may choose to have an MPI -approved facility operator.
