Plant Exports Certification Standards

Plant Exports Certification Standards outline requirements that parties involved in exporting plants need to meet. Standards help ensure that New Zealand's excellent reputation for export products is maintained.


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 plantexports@mpi.govt.nz.
