Manual certificate (FXIN01) for the export of fish and fishery products to Indonesia from 30 March 2021
This Market Access Advice (MAA) provides an update concerning the export of seafood to Indonesia and advice on the process for requesting a health certificate for fish and fish products.
Summary of key points
- On Sunday 28 March 2021, the department was advised via commercial channels that a consignment of Australian fishery products would be rejected on arrival to Indonesia due to health certificate issues.
- This consignment, which arrived on Monday 29 March 2021was initially detained, but has since been released.
- Indonesia’s Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) advised that the current ‘Health Certificate for Fish and Fishery Products Exported to Republic of Indonesia’ (FXIN01) certificate has not met the formatting requirements as set out in its new certificate template for fish and fishery products.
- To avoid further trade disruptions associated with health certificate formatting the department sought urgent implementation of an amended FXIN01 certificate in manual format for use by exporters effective immediately.
- Exporters that have already received the EXDOC FXIN01 certificate are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on obtaining a replacement manual certificate.
- In cases where a replacement manual certificate will need to be issued, the usual fee for a replacement certificate will be waived.
