According to information provided by the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG), Senasa of Peru reported the temporary reopening for the export of Chilean stone fruits to that country.
It should be noted that to export this fruit to the Peruvian market, the following requirements must be met:
- Authorize the export of stone fruits to Peru exclusively from those packing houses registered by the SAG, whose traceability of the producing farms, phytosanitary management in the field, online sampling records and (exclusive) storage for export shipments is reliably verified by the SAG staff.
- Increase of the sampling level to 2,5% (same sampling level applied for pears destined for Peru).
If during the authorized export period, SENASA intercepts shipments with the presence of Cydia molesta again, the CSP where the fruit was packed and all of its farms (CSG) of origin of the interception, will be excluded from exporting for the rest of the defined period.
During the temporary authorization period for stone fruit exports to Peru, the supervisor must carry out at least one supervision of the traceability process presented by the establishment, independent of the verifications carried out when verifying the traceability system used. In addition, the CSP codes and associated CSGs must be reported to the Phytosanitary Export Requirements Subdepartment prior to authorizing the start of inspections of this market.
