About FYI documents
For your information (FYI) documents provide guidance on exporting issues relating to animal products (such as meat, seafood, honey, and dairy), food products, plant products, and wine. They should be read in conjunction with the OMAR or ICPR (Importing Countries Phytosanitary Requirement) for the related destination market(s).
FYI documents let exporters know quickly about unofficial information that could affect exports. The information in an FYI is not a legal requirement. If you rely on the information in FYIs, MPI will not accept liability for any resulting loss.
All current FYIs are listed on this web page. FYIs for animal products, food products and wine are also listed on the relevant OMAR country/market pages.
FYIs are cancelled when they are superseded by another FYI or no longer apply.
Some FYIs are publicly accessible and provide general market guidance on exporting issues for all exporters. Others provide specific guidance on exporting food products to key markets like China, USA, Canada, and Thailand.
Statement about food and primary product safety and COVID-19
We've prepared a statement that exporters can refer to or download and use in their commercial interactions if additional competent authority endorsement of practices is required. It is not intended to be reproduced as an original for the purposes of clearance of specific consignments.
Most FYIs are password protected because they contain commercially sensitive information. If you are involved in exporting animal products, you can apply for access by completing this online application form.
