Consignments are to be free from pests, soil, weed seeds and extraneous material.
For all fruit varieties Canada has classified the following mite species (Tetranychus kanzawai, Tetranychus truncatus, Tetranychus viennensis) as being quarantinable.
The mite Tetranychus kanzawai is present in Australia and any product found to be infested (or suspected of being infested) with Tetranychus kanzawai must not be certified for export to Canada.
Consignments in which suspect mites are found must be put on hold until the mites have been positively identified by an entomologist.
