DAWE has released an Industry Advice Notice, advising the mainland apple and pear industry that applications are now open for the accreditation of orchards and packhouses to export to Thailand for the 2022 season. 

  • Applicants can complete their application forms using the APAL export registration system. If you need to sign up to use the export registration system, please contact Justin Smith at APAL with your registered business name and email address. 
  • Applications must be submitted by 5pm 2 November 2021. Late applications will not be accepted. 
  • If your orchard or packhouse was accredited by DAWE for export to Thailand in 2021, your details are already in the system and you will receive an SMS from APAL advising that application for accreditation has commenced. 
  • If your orchard or packhouse was not accredited in 2021 and you wish to export to Thailand in 2021, please contact Justin Smith at APAL to access the export registration system.
