ENKHUIZEN, The Netherlands, 29 March 2012
INCOTEC Analytical Lab Europe B.V. (INCOTEC) is pleased to announce that it has succeeded in acquiring Exemption 2008/61/EG. This means that a permit has been granted allowing INCOTEC to receive samples from companies outside the European Union without these samples being accompanied by phytosanitary certificates or plant passports. Upon request INCOTEC will supply customers with stickers displaying this status to label their shipments.
This permit simplifies the process of shipping samples to INCOTEC.
