Interstate Certification Assurance (ICA) Accreditation - New South Wales

Description

You can apply for this accreditation if you intend to import and / or introduce host fruit (for example, berries, melons, citrus fruits and plantation fruits) into NSW and require a plant health assurance certificate (PHAC).

A PHAC is a cost effective and convenient alternative to the traditional public health certificate (PHC) issued by a government inspector. This scheme allows your business to apply to issue its own certificates through the Interstate Certification Assurance (ICA) scheme. The ICA scheme is a national accreditation scheme which allows accredited businesses to self-certify plants and plant products when they meet specific interstate quarantine restrictions. If the plants or products meet requirements, a PHAC can be issued.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
