The following guidelines apply to coolers and shippers requesting phytosanitary certificate inspections:

  • Call our quarantine duty officer (759-7300) and ask for the export requirements for the state (within the US) or country you have plans to export to.
  • Some states/countries require additional declarations on the phytosanitary certificate, such as official verifications of field inspection during growing stage, lab results and/or any other information desired by that state/country.
  • Inspection of products to Taiwan is more time consuming; calls should be made before 2:00 p.m.
  • Please be sure that each cooling facility provides the inspector a safe working area.
  • Cooler staff may be asked to help provide a raised inspection surface (pallets, boxes, and table) in an area that has enough light for an inspection.
  • Should product not be available for a scheduled inspection, a service fee of $100.00 may apply.

If you have any questions, please call our office and talk with a quarantine officer.
