Update: Temporary closure of ARC Quarantine/Imports facility
The ARC is currently unable to accept new requests for importations due to the following:
- We are currently undertaking renovations to our quarantine facilities to meet new federal requirements, which are expected to be completed by late October 2022
- We are progressing ARC transfer arrangements from the WA Government to the preferred independent provider and anticipate completion by the end of this year, at which point all operations will be handed over to the new entity
With this in mind, the decision has been made to suspend all imports until such time as the transfer is complete. We are available to answer queries and expect that imports will recommence in the new year (2023).
