Amended requirement of Phytosanitary Certificate for plants for planting or propagation according to the amendment of Plant Protection Act of the Republic of Korea.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affair (MAFRA) has amended the Plant Protection Act. The main revision of Plant Protection Act is the following: All plants for planting or propagation, which are imported by hand-carry, mail, courier service or moving items, shall submit a Phytosanitary Certificate. However, Phytosanitary Certificate of plants for planting or propagation may be exempted when quantity is below specified amount and special permit is issued. MAFRA will notify the details of this exemption soon. More information on Plant Protection Act (in Korean) can be found at the MAFRA's website (http://www.mafra.go.kr/).
