2016-34 - Horticulture Exports Program - Certification requirements for irradiated papaya, mango, lychee, tomato and capsicum exports to New Zealand

​30 May 2016

Purpose​

To advise industry that the certification requirements have been updated in MICoR for irradiated papaya, mango, lychee, tomato and capsicum exports to New Zealand.

Background

The New Zealand BQA SOM allows for exporters to elect to treat papaya, mango, lychee, tomato and capsicum by irradiation at the alternative rates of 400 or 500 Gy. MICoR has been updated to allow certification at these alternative rates as outlined in Appendix 12 of the BQA SOM.

Summary of changes and key points

The MICoR cases for the export of papaya, mango, litchee, tomato and capsicum to New Zealand have been updated to allow for certification of consignments irradiated at 400 or 500 Gy as outlined in Appendix 12 of the BQA SOM. These alternative treatments rates can now be listed in the treatment section of the phytosanitary certificate. Exporters utilising these alternative treatment rates will need to have them listed on the phytosanitary certificate in order for them to be recognised by New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries border staff.
