In G/SPS/N/JPN/1017 on 9 May 2022, the MAFF notified that Japan amended the Plant Protection Act to allow items such as agricultural machinery to be made subject to import quarantine, and that specific quarantine requirements for the items will be notified by the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Plant Protection Act in due course.
This time, the MAFF proposes a revision of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Plant Protection Act to introduce measures for imported used agricultural machineries. Theimport requirements are as follows:
1. To designate specified used agricultural machineries as regulated articles subject to import quarantine (Annex 1);
2. To request the exporting country to attach a phytosanitary certificate declaring that there have been free from soil and plant debris on each consignment of the used agricultural machineries mentioned in 1 above (Annex 2).
