Peru temporarily reopens its market to Chilean stone fruit

The National Agrarian Health Service (SENASA) of Peru has announced the temporary reopening for imports of Chilean stone fruit. Peru's requirements to carry out the commercialization of these fruits are the following:

Only the packing plants registered by the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG) whose traceability of the producing areas, phytosanitary management in the field, online sampling records, and (exclusive) storage for export shipments are verified by SAG personnel are authorized to export.

An increase in the sampling level to 2.5% (the same sampling level applied for pears destined for Peru).

If during the authorized export period, SENASA were to intercept shipments with the presence of Cydia molesta again, the CSP where the fruit was packed and all of its farms (CSG) of origin will be excluded from exporting for the rest of the defined period.

In the case of 3 notifications at the destination, all exports from Chile must be subjected to a fumigation treatment with bromide for the rest of the season.

The 6 Plants involved (CSP) in the detections carried out will be excluded for the rest of the season.

To comply with the provisions of the Peruvian phytosanitary agency, the following rules must be followed:

At the orchard level (CSG)

Any container that transports stone fruits from the orchards to the establishment (boxes, bins, etc.), must be identified by a label or tag with the product's CSG code of origin.

The transfer of products from the orchard (CSG) to the establishment must be carried out via the SII Dispatch Guide, which must include the CSG Code and the species it transports.

At the establishment level

Traceability: Any establishment that wishes to participate in the temporary process of exports of stone fruits to Peru, must present a document or outline describing the product's traceability to the supervisor of phytosanitary certification at the SAG before the start of the inspections.

CSG, species and varieties: Before the stone fruit destined for Peru is processed, the establishment must present a list with the CSGs that will participate in the process, detailing the species, agronomic varieties, and approvals (agronomic variety v / s variety commercial).

At the official inspection level:

To carry out the inspection, the establishment must present to the total number of pallets that make up the lot at the inspection site, organizing them in such a way that the SAG inspector or supervisor can access all of their four faces, in order to verify the information of their conformation.

The document review must be carried out taking into consideration all the aspects included in the work plan, including the presentation of: monitoring form at the selection table, carried out during the process; phytosanitary program applied in the CSG, and flight curves of Cydia molesta (own or shared monitoring).
