I thought I’d answer my own question in case anyone ever faces this problem.

I contacted AQIS and there was much fence sitting. Their website says fumigation must take place before any coatings are put on wood, but in a different place its says before any ‘impervious’ coatings are put on .

When I asked them to define impervious no answer was forthcoming and the buck was smoothly passed onto the fumigator with the response being that if the fumigator (must be AQIS approved, which mine is) was happy, they were happy.

Interesting. I thought AQIS gave direction to the fumigator!

Let’s see what happens when the container arrives.
