Entomology and Plant Science Bureau
Export Services Program

The Export Services Program assures that Iowa agricultural products can move freely in both international trade as well as among other states and U.S. Territories.  Products eligible for certification are ‘plant products,’ as in raw, unprocessed commodities such as grain, seed, lumber, and live plants. Such products are inspected either when they are in the field or after they have been prepared for export. Once inspected, or lab tested as required by the receiving country, the products can be certified and exported. The certificates issued include State, and Federal Export Certification Documents, often referred to as ‘phytosanitary certificates’. This program is conducted in cooperation with the USDA-Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service-Plant Protection and Quarantine Service (USDA-APHIS-PPQ). Click Here to visit their website

The Entomology Bureau may also assist in facilitating movement of field equipment to other states and countries which may require freedom-from certifications concerning soil and plant matter.
