2014-44 - Plant Exports – Clarification of import requirements for plant exports to Malaysia
24 December 2014
Today the Malaysian Department of Agriculture (DoA) revised their requirements that only commodities (see key points) specified in IAN 2014/35 are required to meet the new phytosanitary requirements from 1 January 2015. The advice published in IAN 2014/42 is rescinded.
IAN 2014/35 set out new requirements for a select range of regulated articles exported from Australia. That advice remains extant.
The Malaysian DoA has released import requirements for the following regulated articles from Australia:
- corn (maize)
- raw dried/unprocessed grain for animal feed (oats and barley)
- raw dried/unprocessed meal product for animal feed (lupin meal and linseed meal)
From 1 January 2015, requirements for these commodities will include:
A grace period between 1 January and 28 February 2015 where consignments with a bill of landing or airway bill dated prior to 31 December 2014 will be permitted entry without an import permit and phytosanitary certificate.
