AQSIQ: China Allowable Imported Fruits (Updated July 6, 2016)

July 14, 2016

On July 6, 2016, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) released the latest list of allowable imported fruits. Compared with the previous version (March 28), there are some major changes, as stated below:

(1) Philippines pawpaw was changed to papaya, and the Chinese and Latin names were added.

(2) One more variety of plum was added for the U.S., with the Latin name Prunus domestica.

(3) Peaches and plums from Spain were added to the list for the first time, under the Latin names Prunus persica (peaches) and Prunus salicina and Prunus domestica (plums).

(4) One more variety of kiwifruit was added for Greece, with the Latin name Actinidia deliciosa.

Since February 6, AQSIQ began to use the Latin, English, and Chinese names, in order to make it clearer for workers in the industry to understand which fruits can be legally imported to China.

On March 11, AQSIQ banned the import of kiwiberries from New Zealand, as their Latin name, Actinidia arguta, is not on the list, and their import is not allowed.

 

Below is the latest version of allowable imported fruits:
