General Requirements

Consignments are to be free from pests, soil, weed seeds and extraneous material.

Original and official translation of the Import permit must be presented to the Department of Agriculture Authorised Officer at the time of making the appointment.

Consignment must be free from Crown and Root Rot (Verticillium dahliae), Fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. conglutinans), Light leaf spot (Pyrenopeziza brassicae), Darnel ryegrass (Lolium temulentum), Doublegee (Emex Australis), Common Groundsel (Senecio vulgaris), Soybean Looper (Chrysodeixis includens) and Large cabbage-heart caterpillar (Crocidolomia pavonana).

Crown and Root Rot (Verticillium dahliae), Fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. conglutinans) and Light leaf spot (Pyrenopeziza brassicae) are not on canola seed pathway and do not require testing or inspection to determine freedom.

A visual inspection is required for certifying freedom from Darnel ryegrass (Lolium temulentum), Doublegee (Emex Australis) and Common Groundsel (Senecio vulgaris).

China also requires freedom from two field pests Soybean Looper (Chrysodeixis includens) and Large cabbage-heart caterpillar (Crocidolomia pavonana). These field pests are unlikely to be detected in canola grain.
