Interstate Certificate Assurance - Northern Territory

Description

You will require an Interstate Certification Assurance (ICA) if you intend to export fruit or vegetables from the Northern Territory. ICA is a nationally recognised plant health certification system. An ICA will allow you to export produce knowing it has met strict quarantine guidelines before arriving interstate.

ICA is based on operational procedures developed with industry and interstate quarantine authorities. It allows you to move you produce interstate without the need for quarantine checks. To become accredited you must show your business has effective in-house procedures in place that meet interstate quarantine rules.

If you want accreditation to export more than one item you must fill in a separate form.
