Plant Exports: Pre-Clearance Programmes
A work plan has been developed which specifies the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) pre-export inspection requirements for pipfruit (apples, pears and nashi) exported from New Zealand for the USA.
The work plan gives generic requirements and working procedures for all parties involved in the pre-clearance programme. When the requirements of the work plan are met, USDA inspected, passed and clearly identified pipfruit will receive early release on arrival in the USA.

Offshore Pre-shipment Inspection Requirements to Australia
Offshore Pre-shipment inspection programmes allow conditional export to Australia without product inspection by The Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) on arrival.
Work Plans approved by both Ministry for Primary Industries and DAFF have been developed to specify the operational and procedural requirements needed to participate in these programmes.
