The Bureau issues federal and state phytosanitary certificates on shipments of raw plant materials to facilitate trade with other states and foreign countries. Many states and foreign countries require documentation certifying the plant materials are clean and free of disease and pests before they can be accepted.

Phytosanitary certificates serve as written verification that plants and plant products meet the standards required by other states and foreign countries. They are issued on plant materials such as nursery stock, seed and lumber. Plant materials must be inspected before a phytosanitary certificate can be issued.
