One Time Shipments

In the case of one-time shipments of lumber, a phytosanitary certificate is often still required. Exporters must submit an online application through the Phytosanitary Issuance & Tracking System (PCIT). The Missouri Department of Agriculture (MDA) reviews these applications and checks them against state and federal requirements. State requirements are determined by the National Plant Board and federal requirements are determined through the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services.

If it is determined that treatment is required on the commodity (like heat treatment of WPM) the process will need to be witnessed by an inspector in most cases. If the inspection shows that the requirement(s) can be met then a phytosanitary certificate is issued. 

The following charges apply through the MDA: 
Inspection - $25 for the first hour and $20 for each additional hour
Phytosanitary Certificate - $10 per certificate
PCIT - $6 processing fee per certificate
