​​6 July 2015​

Purpose

To advise of requirements for export listing for cherry fruit to China, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan and Korea by the specified due dates.

Key points

Countries with protocol agreements with Australia have specific requirements for importing Australian cherries. Some protocol markets require the department to provide the export list of orchards, packhouses and treatment facilities before commencing export from those entities.

Orchards, packhouses and treatment facilities that wish to take part in the export of cherries to China, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan or Korea for the 2015/16 season must ensure that their respective applications are submitted before the specified due dates.

The table below shows the requirements for exporting cherries to countries with protocol conditions.
