Exporting plants

An EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) report claims that South Africa’s citrus export programs to the European Union for the control of Thaumatotibia leucotreta or false moth are not effective in preventing the entry of this pest into the European continent.

The European Commission commissioned the EFSA report following repeated interceptions in European ports of consignments infested by T. leucotreta, a pest widespread in Africa and also present in Israel, endemic to South Africa and from which Europe, so far, is free. It is classified by EU legislation as a quarantine pest and is on the EU’s list of 20 priority pests because of its economic, environmental and social impact.

EFSA has identified many other weaknesses in the programs implemented by South Africa, such as lack of accuracy and reliability in orchard monitoring, which does not meet international standards; insufficient inspections during the harvest period; insufficient treatments in areas with high temperatures in summer; shortcomings in sampling of deliveries to the warehouse from the same orchard and, consequently, unreliability of inspection; and failures to reject a whole orchard when a pallet from the orchard is rejected.  South Africa is the source of many pests currently affecting Mediterranean citrus, such as different species of cotonets, including Delettococcus aberiae, and the HLB vector, Trioza erytreae, which highlights the seriousness of the report’s findings.
