The International Phytosanitary Certificate (IFC) is a requirement to export goods of plant origin issued in Mexico by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA), the National Service of Health, Safety and Agro-Food Quality (SENASICA) .

The IFC is a document that requires the country to be exported to verify that the plants, as well as their products and by-products, meet the phytosanitary requirements of the destination country.

The requirements change depending on the variety to be exported and the guidelines requested by the destination country. In the case of Mexico, the guidelines are based on:

International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs / FAO)

Federal Plant Protection Law

Official Mexican Standards

Declarations agreements of free zones or of low prevalence

National emergency devices
