Peru: Requirements set for kiwi plant imports

The National Service of Agricultural Health (SENASA) established the mandatory phytosanitary requirements for the import of Actinidia chinensis and Actinidia deliciosa plants from the U.S.

According to Directorial Resolution No. 0025-2014-Minagri-SENASA-DSV, published in the official bulletin El Peruano, given the growing interest in importing kiwi plants, the Division of Risk Analysis and Phytosanitary Monitoring started a study in order to determine the requirements for their import.

Exporters will require a Phytosanitary Import Permit issued by SENASA, and obtained through the importer or interested party before the shipment is made from the country of origin.

The shipment will also have to include an official phytosanitary certificate from the country of origin, which must confirm that the plant material shipped has been officially inspected by the National Plant Protection Organisation (NPPO) of the country of origin.

Furthermore, shipments will be made in new packaging, free of soil or any other foreign material besides the approved product.

Lastly, the importer will have to keep a registration of importers, production sites and technicians responsible for the material subject to post-entry quarantine regulations.

A delegation of experts from the Department of Plant Protection, of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply, expressed its satisfaction with the phytosanitary control system applied by Argentina on the apples, pears and quinces exported by Brazil.

From 7 to 16 April, Brazil inspectors, accompanied by professionals of the National Health and Food Quality Service (SENASA), assessed the Export Program for the aforementioned pome fruits under a Risk Mitigation System (RMS) of the codling moth pest.

The Brazilian delegation visited production facilities and packing plants in the province of Mendoza and packaging and refrigeration plants in Rio Negro and Neuquén. In the three provinces, the delegation audited the various phytosanitary measures enforced, as well as the document and traceability controls for exported apples and pears.

At the final meeting, held at the headquarters of SENASA, the Brazilian delegation expressed its satisfaction with the Phytosanitary Certification Programme, especially stressing the initiatives carried out by the regional centres Cuyo and Patagonia Norte SENASA, which offer their support for the export of pears and apples. A report on the visit will also be sent, including proposals on future steps to follow, given the ongoing development of the programme, in terms of trade between the two countries.

Brazil absorbs over 80% of Mendoza’s pear and apple exports, and over 35% of Rio Negro and Neuquén’s. During 2013, Argentina exported to Brazil more than 194,000 tonnes of pome fruits.
