General Information

For urgent enquiries phone, fax or email the Plant Exports Group


The requirements listed in this ICPR apply to product of New Zealand only, unless specifically stated.

As there are no New Zealand legislative requirements for certification of exported plant products, the technical phytosanitary requirements are determined by the importing country for plant produce being imported into their country. In this respect, ICPRs are MPI’s summary of the importing country’s legal requirements and thus forms a basis upon which export phytosanitary certification is provided.

Where an importing country operates on the basis of issuing import permits to their importers, the import permit conditions take precedence over any technical conditions contained in the MPI ICPR for that country.

This standard specifies Peru’s phytosanitary import requirements for plant products being exported from New Zealand. If a commodity or commodity group is not identified within this ICPR exporters should contact:

  • Peru directly in order to ascertain requirements


  • Ministry for Primary Industries New Zealand (MPI). (Plant Exports)

Please note, the determination and provision of phytosanitary requirements, for a commodity not identified within an ICPR, is undertaken on a cost recovery basis. A link to the list of Plant Exports Fees and Charges is available on

Users of this document are strongly advised to review all sections of the ICPR for the determination of a commodity’s phytosanitary requirements.

Phytosanitary Legislation

The following legislation controls the importation of plants and plant materials into Peru:

  • Law 27322 "Law Mark of Agricultural Health"
  • Supreme Decree No. 048-2001-AG "General Regulation of Law 27104"
  • Supreme Decree No. 016-76-AL "Importation and Exportation Regulation for Plant Products and Sub-products" (under revision)
  • Supreme Decree No. 018-2000-AG "Establishment of Phytosanitary Import Permit"
  • Central Resolution No. 184-99-AG-SENASA "Establishment of Quarantine Control Positions at National Level"
  • Resolution No.37 2009. Maximum levels of non-quarantine weed seed tolerances.
  • Resolution No.6 2010

General Requirements


Peru has not provided a definitive list of plants and plant products prohibited entry. Peru have indicated that where either, product requirements are unknown, or where a product is being imported for the first time, a Pest Risk Analysis will be performed prior to permitting entry.

Please contact Ministry for Primary Industries New Zealand if further information is required. Refer Plant Exports Team.
