2016-64 - Horticulture Exports Program – Updated work plan for export of carrots to Taiwan available
15 November 2016
To advise industry that an updated work plan for carrots from Australia to Taiwan is now available on MICoR.
Summary of changes and key points
The export of fresh carrots to Taiwan from areas where burrowing nematode (Radopholus similis) is known to occur must follow protocol requirements outlined by Taiwan’s Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine (BAPHIQ).
To assist industry with meeting these requirements a work plan for the export of carrots to Taiwan has been published. The work plan can be found on the Manual of Importing Country Requirements (MICoR) Plants website. To access these documents you must be registered with MICoR Plants.
All growers, packhouses, exporters and peak industry bodies must be aware of and follow conditions detailed in the work plan.
