Have your say
New Zealand Food Safety is reviewing requirements in the Animal Products Notice: General Export Requirements for Bee Products (GREX). The review is related to consignments of bee products weighing less than or equal to 2 kilograms where an official assurance is not required.
The focus of this review is on small packages of honey sent to a private person overseas.
This consultation opened on 29 April and closes on 27 May 2021.
It follows an earlier consultation held in 2020.
