Plant export certification standards
New standards from 1 June 2015
After consultation with the horticultural, forestry and arable sectors, MPI updated the standards for plant export phytosanitary certification. The new standards came into effect on 1 June 2015.
If your organisation wants to become an MPI-Approved Organisation (MAO) then you must meet the requirements of the new 2015 standards.
If you have any questions, contact your independent verification agency (IVA) or email email@example.com.
