What is export certification and what do I need to do for forestry/timber products?
Export certification is the process required to raise a phytosanitary certificate (Phyto E-Cert) and includes the inspection and treatment of consignments where necessary. A phytosanitary certificate is an official government document that gives government-to-government assurance the correct procedures and processes have been undertaken, to provide certainty consignments are free of contaminants, have been inspected and are verified by an independent verification agency such as IVS.
A Phyto E-Cert confirms the exporter has met the Importing Countries Phytosanitary Requirements (ICPRs).
