The Federal Phytosanitary Inspection (FUZIP) at the border crossing Domaljevac – Šamac yesterday, due to non-fulfillment of the phytosanitary conditions for import, prohibited the import of a shipment of kiwis with a net weight of 7.5 tons originating from Italy.
Namely, as announced by the Federal Administration for Inspection Affairs, in the process of phytosanitary inspection of shipments containing wooden packaging material in international traffic, it was determined that the wooden packaging pallets were not treated and marked in accordance with the applicable legal regulations, that is, that the prescribed measures aimed at destroying harmful microorganisms.
“Consequently, and in accordance with the Law on Plant Health Protection, the Rulebook on Phytosanitary Requirements for Wooden Packaging Material in International Traffic, and the FBiH Inspection Law, the import of a controlled shipment with a total weight of 7.5 tons is prohibited, and it was ordered to be returned to the sender , i.e. destruction in the prescribed manner in the event that return is not possible,” FUZIP announced.
We remind you that a few days ago, the Federal Phytosanitary Inspection prohibited the import of 23,100 kilograms of commercial potatoes originating from Poland at the same border crossing because it also meets the phytosanitary requirements.
