Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) and Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) have reached an alternative phytosanitary arrangement which permits Canadian coniferous logs harvested in British Columbia to enter China without mandatory pre-treatment. The logs must meet specific criteria to be exported under the arrangement.

Logs which cannot meet the requirements of the arrangement may be exported under existing import requirements including: debarking (to a tolerance of 5% remaining bark on any single log and no more than 2% of the estimated surface area of the total shipment) or treated with methyl bromide (requires CFIA pre-approval). All logs exported must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate.
