Research Samples (excluding animal and human matter)
Proposed import health standard: Research Samples (excluding animal and human samples). Language(s): English. Number of pages: 12
New Zealand has distributed a draft import health standard for the importation of research samples including organic matter (excluding animal and human matter), inorganic matter and water, which is now available for consultation.
A range of research samples are regularly imported into New Zealand. Currently, the import requirements for research samples are specified in eight different import health standards. The proposed new import health standard centralises all the requirements for research samples, streamlining the importation of these samples.
If the proposed import health standard is issued, consequently other import health standards will be amended to remove the research sample requirements.
