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 and Water Resources 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 Sorghum valgare seed 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 #3996 will apply.
Endorsement #4979 will apply to seed sourced / produced in all other States of Australia.
Endorsement #3995 or #4980 will apply where the import permit does not require certification of Striga.

Exporter to provide evidence attesting to the endorsement and to present to the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources Authorised Officer at time of inspection.
