Treatment

If the import permit requires treatment then:

Consignments presented in commercial packaging where the weight of bare seed is greater than 100 grams per unit must be treated with an appropriate fungicide at recommended manufacturer's requirements.

Non-commercial consignments must be treated prior to export with an insecticide and fungicide at recommended manufacturer's requirements.

The exporter is to provide evidence attesting to the treatment and present it to the department at time of authorisation.

​Details of treatment to be endorsed on the phytosanitary certificate in the treatment section.

If the import permit does not require the consignment to be treated, then the above treatments are not required and no treatment details are to be endorsed on the phytosanitary certificate.

If the products are of non-Australian origin and the phytosanitary certificate from the country of origin endorses a treatment schedule approved by the import permit, no treatment details are to be endorsed on the Australian phytosanitary certificate unless the products had been treated again in Australia. The exporter may choose to use the phytosanitary certificate from the country of origin to meet New Caledonia's treatment requirement. If so, no evidence for treatment is required even if the import permit requires treatment, and the country of origin must be listed in the Additional Product Description.
