Phytosanitary documents on the MPI web site describe the systems in place to support plant product exports.
To export plant products; exporters must meet the phytosanitary standards of the importing country. MPI has a framework in place that allows it to provide assurances to importing countries that the product meets their importing phytosanitary requirements. (Product grown according to relevant protocols can be provided with a phytocertificate to facilitate the products entry to the designated market)
To do this MPI delegates verification of plant products to Independent Verification Authorities (IVA’s) and MPI approved organisations (MAO). These organisations must either show that product has been produced in a way that will minimise pest infestations or is checked and shown to not exceed a specified level of pests .The MPI web site has a number of web pages that contain information on this system . Note some but not all documents are linked to this web site.
