Asian Gypsy Moth - Chile - Phytosanitary Entry Requirements for Vessels

September 2013

PDF Version

Further to the Club’s previous Article dated April 2013 which referred to the joint U.S. Department of Agriculture and Canadian Food Inspection Agency notice (link below), the Chilean Agriculture & Livestock Service has recently issued a Resolution 4412/2013 which sets out Phytosanitary entry requirements for vessels arriving from ports located in the North East and Far East Asia between 60° and 20° North latitude and those that have called in areas with an Asian Gypsy Moth (AGM) presence during the “female flight” periods stated in the Resolution (as may be amended).


In particular, the vessel must have an official Phytosanitary Certificate from the relevant authority in the country of origin, and the vessel representative must provide a copy of the log book or port list showing the vessel’s ports of call during the past two years at least 24 hours prior to arrival.


The requirements will come into force six months after the publication in the Official Gazette, i.e. February 2014.
