Find an approved pest identifier
If pests are found in your goods, you may need to arrange to have them identified by an MPI-approved pest identifier, normally at your cost. Post-entry quarantine samples must be sent to MPI's Plant Health and Environment Laboratory (Tamaki) for pest identification.
