Required for Import of Plants for Planting
Canada: Deregulation of Soybean Cyst Nematode and New Declarations on Soil-borne Plant Pests
As part of this revision, the existingrequirements related to soil, soil-borne plant pests and packing material indirective D-08-04 have been clarified. The additional declarations related tosoil-borne plant pests required for plants and plant parts from areas otherthan the continental United States have been consolidated into a singleadditional declaration referencing D-08-04. For the continental United States,the additional declaration related to H. glycines is no longer necessary; therequirements related to other soil-borne plant pests have not changed.
It is understood that it may take some time forNational Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs) to update their systems withthese requirements and begin using the new additional declarations on PhytosanitaryCertificates for material destined to Canada. Until December 31, 2014, eitherthe old or the new additional declarations for soil-borne plant pests will beaccepted on Phytosanitary Certificates.
It will take some time for the CFIA to amend allexisting Permits to Import to show the new additional declaration; it isexpected that this task will be completed by December 31, 2014. Until then,NPPOs may be presented with Canadian Permits to Import showing either the oldor the new additional declarations for soil-borne plant pests; Permits toImport are valid even if they show the old additional declaration. Rest assuredthat CFIA staff have been instructed to ignore discrepancies related to H.glycines or the revised soil-borne pest additional declarations on importdocuments accompanying material imported into Canada until December 31, 2014.
