Transitional Facility Signage

All Transitional Facilities must have clear and visible signage, as specified by MPI in the General Transitional Facilities (TFGEN) Standard. Your facility may require two types of signage:

  1. Transitional Facility Signs are mandatory, advising all people on site of the premises status as an Approved Transitional Facility
  2. Caution Signs may be required to identify areas reserved for uncleared goods or for marking goods under quarantine

Signage protects your business by raising awareness with those working in and around the Transitional Facility, preventing spread of contamination, and letting people know access is restricted to authorised persons only.

Transitional Facility signs should be placed in appropriate areas, such as entrance ways within your facility. It is important you have signs that are compliant, as these will be checked during your next MPI audit.
