Fresh pomegranate whole fruit and processed arils from India

We are conducting a risk analysis for fresh pomegranate whole fruit and processed arils from India.

We have now released a draft report proposing that the importation of fresh pomegranate whole fruit and processed arils to Australia from all commercial production areas of India be permitted, subject to a range of biosecurity import requirements. The draft report identifies fourteen pests associated with fresh pomegranate whole fruit and three pests associated with processed arils. We propose risk management measures to manage biosecurity risks.

You are invited to provide comment on the draft report, including on the pest risk assessments and proposed risk management measures.

Submissions on the draft report will close on 17 December 2019.

To make a submission:

  • read the draft report
  • submit your feedback via our online form, or by post or email.

We will consider all comments before preparing the final report.
