Import of grain from non-EU countries
Some grain species require a phytosanitary certificate and a control inspection, when grain is imported from certain non-EU countries. Import requirements aim to prevent the spread of harmful plant diseases and pests through grain.
A phytosanitary certificate and an import inspection are required for wheat (Triticum), rye (Secale) and triticale (X Triticosecale) when they are imported from the following countries:
- South Africa
- United States
The import of products requiring a phytosanitary certificate is only permitted through specified points of entry. Such imports must be reported to plant health inspectors, for the arrangement of an inspection.
An importer of vegetables requiring a phytosanitary certificate must register with Evira’s plant health register.
