The phytosanitary (relating to measures for the control of plant diseases) measures for CBS on fruit imported from South Africa have been a point of discussion in the EU by the Standing Committee on Plant Health (SCPH) over the past few weeks.

Departmental Chief Director: Stakeholder Relations and Communications, Makenosi Maroo, said the measures are aimed at preventing the introduction of the fungus Guignardia (Phyllosticta) citricarpa, which causes lesions (black spots) on the citrus fruit.

“The EU market remains an important market for South African citrus and therefore, this department will continuously strive to ensure compliance with the current measures.
