Consignments are to be free from pests, soil, weed seeds and extraneous material.
Original and certified translation of the import permit must be presented to the Authorised Officer at the time of inspection.
Explanation of the endorsements
- Visual inspection by the Authorised Officer is sufficient to endorse freedom from Warehouse beetle (Trogoderma variabile).
- Red witchweed (Striga asiatica) is recognised as not occurring in any Australian states and territories except the Mackay Region of Queensland. Consignments of seed of Australian origin can be endorsed free from Striga asiatica without any evidence presented except for seed sourced from the Mackay Region. Seed sourced from the Mackay Region cannot be exported to Argentina.
- If required, the place of production details may be entered in the "Additional product description field" section of the EXDOC Request for Permit (RFP) as: THE SEED WAS GROWN IN <PLACE OF PRODUCTION>, <STATE>. There is to be no deviation from this text format. To enable the field on the RFP the exporter must submit a request to the EXDOC Plant Program via (EXDOCPlantPrograms@agriculture.gov.au).
