Description of the plant and plant product certification system
Many states and foreign countries have placed quarantines or other legal restrictions on Kansas to minimize the risk of Kansas pests being transported on Kansas-produced plants and plant products that are moving in domestic and international markets.
Plant Protection and Weed Control Program staff provide the inspection and certification services to assure the importing states and foreign countries that Kansas plants and plant products meet their import requirements. These inspections are not required by the State of Kansas.
The various types of inspections listed on the navigation bar are provided to meet the requirements of the importing state or country. Import requirements for each state and foreign country may not be easily accessible by persons wishing to ship a regulated article.
Please feel free to contact our office with questions about a specific commodity or product. More detailed information is available through the links on the navigation bar.
