Plant Quarantine Import Regulations

1.Introduction

Introduction the import of agriculture products is controlled y the ministry of Agriculture. Essentially, control id ex-excised by means of the following instruments:

  1.  Agriculture permit for consumption. Specific commodities hit are: cereals, pulses, cotton, medicinal plants and all other agricultural commodities meant for consumption.
  2.  Agriculture permit for planting, sowing and propagation.
    Each of these systems is described in the sections below.
    The authority for the permits and phytosanitary certificate s derived from Plant Quarantine (Regulation of Import into India) Order,2003 as amended on 6 February 2004.
    It may be noted other laws under PFA (Prevention of Food Adulteration) on grounds of health and packaging and making restriction will also be attracted.

The Plant Quarantine Order 2003 issued 18 November 2003 is the operative part of the regulation governing the import of agriculture and agriculture products for the purpose of consumption as well as sowing. The Phytosanitary regulation, fumigation and inspection system as well as the fees are prescribed in the Plant quarantine Order. The order is issued under Destructive Insects and Pests Act, 1914 popularly known as DIPA. Inspection fee and Fumigation fee are specified in the Schedule to the Order.

Phytosanitary Certificate For Pacing Material Only From! 5 May 2005

Subject: Implementation of provisions of clause (3),

  1. Sub-clause (22) of Plant Quarantine (Regulation of Import into India) Order, 2003
    39-CBEC I am directed to Invite your attention to the Board’s letter F. No. 03.06.2004 450/80/2000-Cus.IV, dated 31.5.2004 (copy enclosed) vide which the implementation of sub-clause (22), clause (3) of Plant Quarantine (Regulation of Import into India) Order, 2003 requiring Phytosanitary certificate in respect of Packing arterials of Imported gods was withheld until further orders. The effective date of Provisions of sub-clause (22), clause (3) of plant Quarantine (regulation of Import into India) Order, and 2003 was 1.6.2004.
  2. Now, the Ministry of Agriculture, Department of Agriculture and Cooperation vide notification dated 31.5.2004 issued from F.o.8-128/2004-PPI (copy enclosed) have deleted sub-clause 21 and 22 of clause 3 of the Plant Quarantine (Regulation of Import into India) Order, 2003 with immediate effect. At the same time new sub-clause 20A, prescribing treatment of wood packing materials has been inserted n clause 3 of Plant Quarantine (Regulation of Import into India) Order, 2003. This clause will enter into force on 1st November 2004.
  3. In view of above necessary instruction may kindly be issued to all concerned.
    [Please Note: The date is extended to 15 May 2005 by the Government according to latest reports.]

Phytosanitary Requirement for Treatment of Wood Packing Material (F. No. 8-93/2004-PP-I, Dated 14.02.2005).

  1. As you may be aware, wood pacing material used for Packing of export consignment raw wood, which has the potential of unprocessed raw wood, which has the potential of harboring plant pests and diseases which can spread to adversely affect. Wood packaging material is often reused, recycled or remanufactured for reuse Hence, the true origin and Phytosanitary risk status of any wood packaging material is difficult to determine.
  2. The international Plant Protection Convention has therefore adopted treatment measures for wood packing material, which are being adopted by various countries across the globe. The countries of the European Union propose to enforce this same. The treatment standards prescribed by IPPC are contained in International Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM-15). As an be seen, the approved treatments for wood packing materials are:-
  3. (a) Heart treatment of wood packing, which required heating of the timer to a minimum core temperature of 560C fro, a minimum of 30 minutes (HT).
    Or
    (b) Fumigation, using Methane Bromide (MB) at 480C for 16 hrs. at 210C

    ISPM 15 also recommend that wood should e debarked prior to treatment by an approved measure (DB).
  4. Guidelines for certification of Hot-air treatment facilities for today wood packing materials in line with ISPM-15 have already been approved by the website WWW.agricoop.nic.in and WWW.plantquarantinelineindia.org. These guideline envisage accreditation of Plant Protection. Quarantine and Storage, NH-IV, Faridabad. Guidelines for Methane Bromide treatment are being developed which will be published in the above website very shortly. These guidelines also envisage accreditation of fumigators for providing Methane Bromide treatment.
  5. The facilities set up by M/s. Moser Bear India Ltd. have already been approved/accredited by the Directorate. More such treatment facilities need to be created in our country to enable ISPM compliant treatment for wood packaging materials exported to these countries including E.U., Canada etc. already required that the wood packing materials exported to these courtiers needs to be compliant with ISMP-15. Therefore, you are requested to take all necessary steps to ensure that such treatment facilities are developed at various locations in the country. Further, it is requested that wide publicity be given to this issue and exporters may be informed regarding these requirements to enable them to undertake appropriate treatments for the packing materials used for their consignments.

Agriculture Permit System for Plants/Plant Materials/Fruits/Seeds for Consumption

The import of agriculture products is controlled by the Ministry of Agriculture. Essentially, control is exercised by means of the following instrument:

  1. Phytosanitary Certificate: Plant Quarantine system under which agriculture commodities must be accompanied by a Phytosanitary certificate issued in the country of origin. The goods upon entry into India are subjected to plant quarantine inspection and treatment against a fee. The specific items covered are:
    (a) Plants/planting material (cutting, sapling, bud wood etc, bubs, tubers, corns, rhizomes)
    (b) Dry fruits, fresh fruits vegetables, seeds, soil, earth, clay
  2.  Agriculture permit system for plants/plant material/fruits/seeds for consumption. Specific commodities hit are: cereals, pulses, wooden logs, dry and fresh fruits, spices cotton, medicinal plants and all other agricultural commodities meant for consumption.

  3.  Agriculture permit system for Plants/plant material/fruit/seeds for planting, sowing and propogation. Phyto-sanitary is derived from Plants, Fruits and seeds(Regulation of Import into India) Order, 1989 as amended.
    It may be noted other laws under PFA (Prevention of Food Adulteration) on grounds of health and packaging and marking restrictions will also be attracted.

Garlic Agri Permit – Import of Consignments of Plants & Plant Products

[Ref: F.F. 450/11/2006-Cus.IV dated 25.01.2006 CBEC]

  1. I am directed to invite your attention to Para 18 of the Chapter 9 of CBEC’s Customs manual wherein it is mentioned that ‘the Customer will have to ensure that plant/plant material (primary agricultural products) are granted clearance for home consumption only after necessary permission is granted by the concerned Plant and Quarantine Officer’.

  2.  Ministry of Agriculture (Department of Agriculture & cooperation) has informed that the plants and plant products into the country is regulated under the provisions of the plant Quarantine (Regulation of Import into India) Order, 2003 in order to prevent the ingress of exotic pests & diseases that may adversely affect the agriculture. Therefore, the import consignment of plants and plant products have to be inspected by the Plant Quarantine Authorities to be inspected by the Plant Quarantine Authorities to verify absence of infestation of pests & diseases before being cleared for released by Custom. However, there have been instances where Customs Officers have released the import consignment of garlic and other agricultural commodities imported fro China and other countries without reference to the Plant Quarantine Stations. Such action could lead to the inadvertent introduction of dangerous quarantine pests into the country and also result in loss of revenue that would otherwise have been realized/through Plant Quarantine inspection and treatment of the imported consignment. The matter has gained imported since Department of Agriculture & Cooperation as stopped issued any more permits for the import of garlic from China with immediate effect due to repeated interceptions of the Embellisia allii, a fungus that could adversely affect the indigenous production of garlic and garlic group of crops.

  3. In view of above it is re-iterated that release of any import consignment of plants and plant products, including garlic, should not be done without prior clearance of the Plant Quarantine authorities.

Boric Acid for Non-insecticides use only by Import Permit

Sub: Importability of Boric Acid

  1. 37-CBEC I a directed to invite your attention to the Board’s Circular
    06.09.2005 No. 61/2004-Cus. Dated 28th October 2004 on the above subject. Para 2(ii) of the said circular exempted te importer of Boric acid for identified non-insecticidal use from the requirement of registrations under the Insecticidal Act 1968 on the basis of a certificate of end use issued by the concerned Administrative Ministry/Department of the Government of India.

  2. In this context, Ministry of Agriculture has now clarified that Import of Boric acid for non-insecticidal guidelines with regard to the import of other insecticides for non-insecticidal use viz. on the basis of import permit issued by the Registration Committee on the recommendation of the nodal Department/Ministry. It has been decided that, since Ministry of Agriculture is the Administrative Ministry for regulating the import of Insecticides, it has been decided by the Board that the instructions and guidelines issued by them would be required to be followed by the field formations.

  3. Therefore the Board’s Circular No. 61/2004 dated 28th October, 2005 stands modified to the extent that import to Boric Acid for non insecticidal use may be allowed only o the basis of import permit issued by Central Insecticide Board & Registration Committee (CIB & RC) under Ministry of Agriculture on the Basis of recommendation of the nodal Administrative Ministry. This would be in addition to the requirement of the ministry of agriculture specified in Para 2& 3 of the above circular no. 61/2004 dated 28th October 2004.

  4. Pending assessment if any may e finalized accordingly.
