Export market requirements world map

This interactive map is to help processed food exporters find the requirements of overseas markets. The map has links to OMARs (Overseas Market Access Requirements), ICPRs (Importing Country Phytosanitary Requirements), and other information for each market selected.

Find your market

Search for markets by name or click on an area of the map. Zoom in to find the names of particular markets or countries. When you select a market, a pop-up box will appear with links to the information you need.

About the map

Before you use the map, you need to be familiar with:

  • OMARs – documents that detail an overseas market's access requirements. Many OMARs are password-protected. You'll need to apply to MPI for a password if you don't have one.
  • ICPRs – these are an importing country's phytosanitary requirements. They detail the phytosanitary requirements (like pesticide treatments) that you must meet for plant products like vegetables and fruit.
  • FYIs – are 'For Your Information' documents. Most of these are also password-protected. FYIs give guidance on exporting animal and animal products to a particular market. Not all markets have FYIs.

Request a password to access OMARs or FYIs
