Egypt has reestablished its mandatory pre-shipment inspections of grain at port-of-loading, reports UkrAgroConsult.

All imported plants and plant products must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate. The phytosanitary certificate must reference the import permit related to the shipment. No shipment shall be possible unless the above is available.

The GASC has been referencing since January 2020 in its tender documents the requirement of pre-shipment inspections at port-of-loading.
