Wheat (Triticum L.) for human consumption or animal feed

Requirements for the import of wheat (Triticium L.) into the State of Israel from all sources. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 1

Wider global sources for wheat imported to Israel have necessitated the revision of the import requirements for wheat grain. The revision is effective immediately. This measure is to prevent the entry of Tilletia indica, which was not specifically required until now in the import of wheat grain.

According to the revision, wheat grain consignments imported to Israel must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate, asserting compliance with the import requirements. Wheat grain should be imported from countries that are free from Tilletia indica, or otherwise the grains should originate from areas that are free from the fungus based on official surveys and with sampling and testing of consignments prior to export, according to standard procedures. Revision of import requirements to prevent the entry of Tilletia indica into Israel and its region by way of imported wheat grain from countries where the fungus is present, in order to protect the cultivation of wheat and other host crops in the region.
