2015-22 - Plant Exports – MICoR Plants cases for Grains & Seeds to Malaysia

27 May 2015


To advise exporters of updates made to MICoR Plants for grains and seeds for export to Malaysia for consumption, processing and stockfeed use. 

Key Points

  • Following new phytosanitary import conditions required by the Malaysian Department of Agriculture (DOA) as of 1 January 2015, the department has been working to seek clarification from the Malaysia DOA regarding consistency in the issuing of import permits and phytosanitary certification requirements.
  • MICoR Plants has been updated with specific cases for grains and seeds for consumption (human), processing and stockfeed use, which is based on existing and current trade.
  • The cases which are not for a specific product, previously categorised as ‘Other’, have been removed from MICoR Plants database.
  • Any intended export of a product which does not have a specific MICoR Plants case may proceed only if an import permit or an instrument in writing has been obtained from the Malaysian DOA specifying import conditions.
  • Exporters are to email MICoR Plants with the import permit or an instrument in writing for assessment and updating of the database (micorplants@agriculture.gov.au).

 If you have any further enquiries, please email MICoR Plants .
