Industry advice notice – China trade (added 6 November 2020)

Micor Plants contains information regarding conditions to export plants and plant products, including fruit, vegetables, seeds, grains, cut flowers and timber from Australia. It is a simple and convenient reference tool detailing the requirements for import permits, phytosanitary certificates, additional declarations and/or treatments, and other relevant export information.

Exporters must meet both the requirements of the Export Control Act and its subordinate legislation and any importing country requirements in order for the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (Department) to provide export certification. The Australian Government is a signatory to the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and strongly supports international cooperation in controlli​ng pests of plants and plant products through science-based quarantine measures that will prevent the unintended spread of pests to other countries through imported products.

Importing country requirements contained in Micor Plants are correct at the time of publishing. Exporters should independently obtain this information in writing from the National Plant Protection Organisation (NPPO) before relying on it.



This section contains documents relevant to plant exports including protocols and work plans. Protocol documents are bilateral agreements between the Department and the importing country NPPO. Work plans are developed from the protocols however not all protocols have a work plan.
