Taiwan is another country outside the EU to which, based on bilaterally agreed phytosanitary regulations, Polish apples will soon be exported, as announced by the Ministry of Agriculture on Friday.
On September 9-12 this year, on the initiative of the Chief Inspectorate for Plant and Seed Protection (GIORiN), an audit was carried out by the Animal and Plant Health Control and Quarantine Office (BAPHIQ) of Taiwan. Inspections took place at the orchards and packaging and storage facilities. The entities that have expressed their desire to export apples to the Taiwanese market must be registered at PIORiN before the start of the growing season.
"The inspection was intended to check the implementation of Taiwan's phytosanitary requirements before the launch of Polish exports from the 2019 harvest," reported the Ministry.
Producers who are interested in exporting apples to Taiwan next season should register by April 30, 2020. The list of registered entities must be sent to Taiwan by June 10 each year at the latest.
