APEDA issues additions to regulation of peanut, peanut product exports

The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) has issued some additions to the regulation of export of peanuts and peanut products through control of aflatoxins.

The announcement issued on January 30, 2013, said that exporters shall ensure that all peanut and peanut product (PPP) units from whom they source the produce have provided their data (name and address, capacity, etc. of the unit) available to the Indian Oilseeds and Produce Export Promotion Council (IOPEPC) for submission to Peanut.Net by March 31, 2013, since Customs would only accept a certificate of export through Peanut.Net with effect from April 1, 2013, as advised by APEDA to them.
