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 taken as evidence of compliance with quarantine requirements for interstate and intrastate trade.
A PHAC is a cost-effective and convenient alternative to the traditional Public Health Certificate (PHC) issued by a government inspector. The Interstate Certification Assurance (ICA) scheme is a national scheme which enables your business to be accredited by a plant quarantine authority. The scheme allows accredited businesses to self-certify plants and plant products when they meet specific interstate quarantine restrictions.
If an ICA does not exist for your produce, you will need to check the entry condition for the state or territory where you would like to send your produce, and the regulators in the state or territory where the produce is grown, in order to get a PHAC.
