Import from India

After consultations at the EU level, the NVWA has decided that ‘electronic’ phytosanitary certificates from India with the text ‘digitally signed’ will no longer be accepted because the EU still has not come to an agreement with India about the use of electronic certificates.

This means that:
Phytosanitary certificates that are certified on November 1 or thereafter may not carry the text ‘digitally signed’, but must have an original wet stamp and an original wet signature.
