The fruit would also have to be imported in commercial consignments and accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by the national plant protection organization of Vietnam with an additional declaration stating that the consignment was inspected and found free of the fungus Macrophoma mangiferae and mango black spot, Xanthomonas campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae.
