Here we discuss about Phyto sanitary certification. What isphyto sanitary inspection? Why Phyto sanitary inspection for exports and imports? What are the objectives of Phyto sanitary certification?


phyto sanitary certificateOne of the objectives of sanitary and Phytosanitary requirements is to protect animal or plant life or health within the territory of the member country from risks arising from the entry, establishment or spread or pests, disease and disease carrying organisms. Another objective is that to protect human or animal life or health within the territory of the member from risks arising from additives, contaminants, toxins or disease causing organisms on foods, beverages or feed stuffs.

The purpose of phytosanitary inspection includes protection of human life or health within the territory of the member nation from risks arising from the disease carried by animals, plants or products thereof, or from the entry, establishment or spread of pests. The objectives of phytosanitary certification also include prevention of other damages within the territory of the member nation from the entry, establishment or spread of the pests.


A phyto sanitary certificate issued by authorized agencies is one of the requirements of import documents to import some of the items. The main purpose of such phytosanitary certification is for protection of animal or plant life or health within the territory of the country from risks arising from the entry, establishment or spread or pests, disease and disease carrying organism. The phytosanitary certificate is an official declaration stating that plants and plant material exporting are free from pests and diseases, so as to prevent introduction and spread of any pests in the importing countries.


Phytosanitary certificate procedures are undertaken as per the guidelines of National Plant Protection Organization (NPPO) or equivalent authorities in a country, certifying to meet import phytosanitary requirements. Each country has designed certain parameters to meet with the phytosanitary requirements of foreign countries, as per the guidelines of WTO agreement which is an integral part of final Act of General Agreement of Tariff and Trade GATT 1994 with regard to protection of human safety or health, protection of animal and plant life or health and also protection of the environment.

Suraj Madavi : I'm suraj madavi. Proprietar , with an iec sir i want to export basmati rice from india but before that i want know about preshipment finance, i read about it on your website but i need more information

anwarul haque : I am working as an sales manager exporting Indian Basmati Rice. I am planning to export myself directly and want to establish a company. I have found answers of a lot of questions of mine relating to exporting. One thing I am stuck with is how I can be rest assured that the prices quoted in USD today will be the same when I get remittance actually from the foreign buyer. I mean today the dollar price may be 64 but when I get the funds from my overseas buyer it may be 63. In this case how can I safe myself.

Ranjit Giri : The Australian Customs and AQIS no longer need a phytosanitary certificate for fully processed tea and coffee (roasted powder and beans). Now I am given to understand that recently they do not require for fully cured and hulled green coffee bean either. Why is it that "sometimes" and from some ports, the Indian Customs are insisting on this Phyto certification for consignments to Australia? We receive shipments without phyto from India, yet from some ports, they insist that our suppliers get this. This then adds to our cost and we become that much less competitive on the Australian market. Also, the courier companies in India - from certain ports - insist on the phyto certification as they do not want to get in trouble with the customs. And they are also unaware that Australia no longer needs this.

Hashim Kamal: We would like to re-export rice from Saudi Arabia to Jordon, Lebnon and Iraq but all these countries will allow import if we present the phytosanitary certificate. We will appreciate if someone will guide me that how could we do this certification in Saudi Arabia.
