Please note the following before you begin: 

  • Growers are required to do the Packhouse delivery inspection for FMS every 7 days. Packing week starts on Monday. 
  • If one FCM infested (FCM live larva) fruit is identified, then the delivery will be rejected for export to the EU. The orchards from which such a delivery is drawn will then immediately be withdrawn for exports to the EU for the remainder of the season. 
  • The EU Orchard Status is influenced by both the FMS Orchard Status and FFMS Orchard Status. 
  • These are the P & N FMS Orchard Statuses:  
  • DX. This is the general default value and means the FMS PDI has not taken place yet. Fruit will be rejected for export to the EU by PPECB with this status.
  • NP. This means Not Permitted. Fruit from this orchard will be rejected for export to the EU market. Once an orchard gets a status of NP it will remain as such for the rest of the season. 
  • NX. This indicates that the status has been reset which happens every Sunday at 23:59. All statuses except for NP are Reset to NX once a week. A reset occurs to the FMS PDI as a requirement that a PDI needs to be done for every packing week. 
  • FY. This means the fruit is “good to go” and can be passed at packhouse inspections. 
  • OH. This means “On-hold”. An FMS interception has occurred in the EU and the orchards are on-hold until further notice.
