Plant Exports Certification Standards outline requirements that parties involved in exporting plants need to meet. Standards help ensure that New Zealand's excellent reputation for export products is maintained.
New standards from 1 June 2015
After consultation with the horticultural, forestry and arable sectors, MPI updated the standards for plant export phytosanitary certification. The new standards came into effect on 1 June 2015.
If your organisation wants to become an MPI-Approved Organisation (MAO) then you must meet the requirements of the new 2015 standards.
This standard is one of a set of standards that comprise the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) export phytosanitary certification system.
This MPI standard sets out the requirements which must be met by an independent third party Supplier of plant pest identification services, to achieve and maintain recognition status provided by the Director. The obtaining of this status permits the holder to provide plant pest identifications of pests found in New Zealand grown produce where MPI export certification is required.
