Horticulture – Taiwan Exports - Phytosanitary Certificate issuance - Update
This Industry Advice Notice is issued to provide further advice on the conditions for the issuance of Phytosanitary certificates for exports to Taiwan.
Industry Advice Notice 2010/05 was issued to inform industry that the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine, Taiwan (BAPHIQ), have confirmed that for all plant products (fruit, vegetables, cut flowers, cut foliage, dried fruit & vegetables and live plants - nursery stock, cuttings, tissue culture, bulbs & tubers, etc) that have been issued with a Phytosanitary Certificate and are not exported within 14 days from the date of certification, the consignment shall be re-inspected and a new Phytosanitary Certificate issued.
The Horticulture Exports Program has received further advise from BAPHIQ clarifiying that this requirement is only applicable to fresh fruit exported from non-fruit fly free areas (ie: consignments that require treatment). It does not apply to other plant products from any area or fruit which is sourced/produced and exported from recognised pest free areas.
This information is published under the General Country information in the Phyto database - and the individual Phyto cases for horticulture commodities.
For further assistance, please contact your regional AQIS office.
