Special measures for exports of mango from Bangladesh

6 June 2017

Due to the high number of interceptions of harmful organisms on commodities originating in Bangladesh the European Commission has advised that there is a need for phytosanitary restrictions for plant products (including fruit and vegetables) from Bangladesh.

The Commission had carried out several audits which further revealed shortcomings in the phytosanitary export certification system of the country. With regard to first bilateral exchanges, Bangladesh had put in place a self-imposed ban on the most intercepted commodities (capsicum, momordica, trichosanthes, ziziphus).

From 1 July 2017, special measures will be applied by Bangladesh for the export of mangoes to ensure compliance with the EU legislation. No mangoes will be exported after the 1 July 2017. The Commission will follow closely the implementation and take further measures if they are needed.
