PHYTOSANITARY TREATMENT AND ADDITIONAL DECLARATION OF VARIOUS COMMODITIES EXPORTABLE TO VIETNAM FROM INDIA
To safeguard the country’s agricultural economy and the biodiversity from the ravages of exotic pests, every country has specified phytosanitary conditions so as to mitigate these pests OR otherwise impose restrictions/prohibitions based on scientific justifications. Moreover, every country periodically conducts/reviews the Pest Risk Analysis (PRA) of a commodity before its import and lays down phytosanitary conditions. Most of the countries issues Import Permit or Import Licence incorporating the phytosanitary requirement including the treatment(s). Exporters should procure these requirements and provide to the Treatment Provider. However, some of the important phytosanitary measures required by these countries have been compiled for ready reference with the advice to ascertain the country’s current regulations for details, its completeness and authenticity.
Import Licence incorporating the phytosanitary requirement including the treatment(s) is issued by the PLANT PROTECTION DEPARTMENT (PPD), MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE & RURAL DEVELOPMENT (MARD), Vietnam. Exporters should procure these requirements and provide to the Treatment Provider(s).
