Peru: Senasa establishes the phytosanitary requirements for the export of asparagus

The director of plant health in Senasa has established phytosanitary requirements for asparagus exports after the country's asparagus shipments raised phytosanitary and sanitary alerts, mainly in the United States and the countries of the European Community, due to the presence of pests, cadmium, and excess residue limits (MRLs).

The requirements for exporting fresh asparagus to the United States of America and the countries of the European Community include having the following documentation: certification of production sites, certification of primary processing facilities (packinghouses), Phytosanitary certification of shipments, and pesticide and heavy metal residue analysis certificate.

The sanitary and phytosanitary requirements will start being implemented on April 1, 2019, when they come into force.

The Minister of Agriculture stated that the procedure for the Sanitary and Phytosanitary Certification of Vegetable Products destined for export and its annexes, will be published in the website of the National Service of Agrarian Health (Senasa).
