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 Authorised Officer at the time of making the appointment.

Red witchweed (Striga asiatica) is not known to occur in all Australian states except Queensland. Australian consignments of sunflower seeds exported to China can be endorsed free from Striga asiatica without the need to provide or cite area freedom certificates or laboratory certificates of analysis for all states except Queensland.

Due to the detection of Striga in Queensland, where the import permit requires certification of Striga and the seed has been sourced / produced in Queensland, endorsement #4973 or #4974 will apply.

Endorsement #591 or #4972 will apply to seed sourced / produced in all other States of Australia.

Endorsements #1162 will apply where the import permit does not require certification of Striga.

Endorsement #2544 and #616 - the exporter is to provide a combination of crop inspection report, laboratory testing and/or area freedom certificate as an evidence to certify freedom from Tomato canker (Clavibacter michiganenis subsp michiganense), Stem nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci), Nematode (Meloidogyne spp), Nematode (Paratrichodorus spp), Needle nematode (Longidorus spp), Spring dead spot (Leptosphaeria lindquistii), Root lesion nematode (Pratylenchus spp), Blast of oil palm (Pythium splendens), Tobacco ringspot virus, Verticillium wilt (Verticillium albo-atrum), Darnel ryegrass (Lolium temulentum) and Broomrape (Orobanche spp).

Endorsement #5717 - the exporter is to provide a combination of crop inspection report, laboratory testing and/or area freedom certificate as an evidence to certify freedom from Tomato canker (Clavibacter michiganenis subsp michiganense), Stem nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci), Nematode (Meloidogyne spp), Nematode (Paratrichodorus spp), Needle nematode (Longidorus spp), Spring dead spot (Leptosphaeria lindquistii), Root lesion nematode (Pratylenchus spp), Blast of oil palm (Pythium splendens), Verticillium wilt (Verticillium albo-atrum), Darnel ryegrass (Lolium temulentum) and Broomrape (Orobanche spp).

Where applicable, the Exporter is to provide evidence attesting to the endorsement and to present to the Authorised Officer at time of inspection.

Note: Blight (Phoma macdonaldii) is an anamorph of Spring dead spot (Leptosphaeria lindquistii).
