Regulations for importing potatoes from Egypt to Scotland.

Potato imports from Egypt

Ware potatoes from Egypt may only be imported into Scotland if they comply with specific import conditions including that they come from pest free areas (PFA), have been handled at certified packing stations and exported by an officially registered exporter.  

Imports of Egyptian ware potatoes are also subject to testing for brown rot.  The fee for this must be paid for by the importer. 

Companies who may be interested in packing, washing or processing Egyptian potatoes please contact your local RPID are office as annual authorisation is also required.

Further information on seed and ware potatoes is available from SASA.
