  • Methyl Bromide: Colourless, odourless but highly toxic fumigant extensively used for quarantine fumigations. Attacks the central nervous system, has a cumulative effect
  • Phosphine: Another fumigant gas, with a safe concentration level more than 16 times lower than methyl bromide
  • Formaldehyde: Recently classified in the EU as carcinogenic, this gas is emitted from wood glues and certain other timber products
  • Other Gases: Hydrogen Cyanide, Chloropicrin, Ethylene DiBromide are amongst a range of gases found inside shipping containers shipped internationally


Nordiko’s system performance recorded at an operating warehouse in Sydney showed removal of methyl bromide from a level more than 8 times the safe level, to well below the safe level, in a matter of minutes:


Peter Mundy (UES Sydney): “Our firm prides itself in taking seriously the health and safety of all our staff. Adopting the Nordiko system at our Lidcombe warehouse means we can have fast and efficient unpacking of our imported goods, despite the hazards of unseen gases”


  • WorkSafe in Victoria has issued guidelines requiring 24 hour open-door ventilation of fumigated shipping containers before unpacking should commence (unless mechanical ventilation/monitoring methods are used)
  • The Australian Standard Fumigation Procedures requires ventilation of containers after fumigation – until “safe” levels have been reached: European experience is that this can take days


  • Without monitoring it is not possible to determine if a shipping container is safe to enter
  • Even containers not marked as having been fumigated have been found to have unsafe levels of residual gases inside
  • AQIS regulations now prohibit officers from entering previously fumigated shipping containers
