The draft is known as Biosecurity Import Risk Analysis Regulation (BIRA). Agriculture minister Barnaby Joyce said the analysis process, regulations and opportunity for comment were issues raised by stakeholders during earlier consultation on the Biosecurity Act. “All comments received during the consultation process will be consid- ered in drafting the final BIRA regula- tion,” he said. “Our enviable clean and green bios- ecurity status relies on getting these regulations right. We are all aware of the potential consequences of pest and disease incursions to our domestic industries, environment and access to overseas markets.” The cargo sector and shippers con- tributed heavily in the earlier consul- tation period on import risk analysis (IRA). “We heard from stakeholders that it is important to consult earlier, to access external expertise and to better explain how regional differences are considered when conducting an IRA,” said Joyce. “The feedback we received through the examination of the IRA process from stakeholders has directly shaped the draft BIRA regulation. “I would also like to reassure stake- holders that the development of the BIRA process does not mean previous- ly completed IRAs are invalid or will be redone.” Ceva inks Brazilian beauty deal C EVA Logistics has confirmed its expan- sion into the beauty industry in Brazil with the signing of a new agreement with Sephora, a cosmetics retailer owned by luxury goods group LVMH, (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton) to manage the inbound, warehousing, outbound and reverse logistics to its stores across the country. Under the contract, Ceva will con- solidate a variety of cosmetic products such as make-up, fragrances, hair care products, accessories, body and bath products and its own brand, Sephora Collection, from 40 distribution points within Brazil into one of its multi-user sites located just outside of São Paulo. The logistics company invested heavily in climate control infrastructure to enable the storage and handling of over 7,000 SKU and approximately three million individual order items each year.
