If you want to import such products from non-EU countries, you need a phytosanitary certificate to accompany the product. In many cases, import is not allowed at all.

If your firm commercially imports such products from non-EU countries, it must be registered at the Board of Agriculture. Upon registration the firm receives an official registration number.
