The import conditions have been developed based on the standard commercial production practices and packing procedures. Fresh date fruit from the Islamic Republic of Iran and Morocco are also required to undergo a phytosanitary inspection and in-transit cold treatment.

Importers of dates from the Islamic Republic of Iran and Morocco, brokers, and Assessment Services Group.
