Export With Confidence

The IVS export services team assists New Zealand exporters with global market access through trusted reliable product certification for the forestry and timber industries.


What is export certification?

Export certification is the process required to raise a phytosanitary certificate (Phyto E-Cert) and where necessary, includes the inspection and treatment of consignments. A Phyto E-Cert is an official document which gives government-to-government assurance the correct procedures and processes have been undertaken. It provides certainty consignments are free of contaminants, have been inspected and are verified by an independent verification agency such as IVS.

A Phyto E-Cert confirms the exporter has met the Importing Countries Phytosanitary Requirements (ICPR).
