Additional information

KEPHIS will stamp the customs entry to indicate clearance and retain the original Plant Import Permit, ISTA certificate and phytosanitary certificate(s). If the consignment does not meet the phytosanitary requirements, it can be treated, destroyed or shipped back to the country of origin at the expense of the importer. The KEPHIS inspector will also draw samples of seeds from the consignment, as per the ISTA regulations, chapter 2, for analysis prior to issuance of a seed testing certificate. This can take up to two weeks. Form SR 11 instructs the trader not to sell the seeds or re-package before all the stipulated conditions have been made/prior to issuance of the seed testing certificate.
