This article was originally published on this site

This report provides an unofficial translation of the draft National Technical Regulations (NTR) on the phytosanitary requirements for imported regulated articles, proposed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Plant Protection Department. The objective of the NTR is to regulate the quarantine requirements of imported plants. The draft NTR sets a zero tolerance on all quarantine pests regulated under Circular 35/2014/TT-BNNPTNT issued in 2014. Vietnam has notified these measures to the WTO as VNM112, allowing trading partners and stakeholders to comment before May 17, 2020.
