Rochelle, et al: The normal standard procedure, at least here in Oregon, is
to contact your local county agricultural agent who will then make an
appointment and have an inspector check all the material that you wish to
export. The material, rhizomes, seeds, etc must be free from any soil or any
other extraneous material that might harbor or transmit plant diseases in
the country to which the material is being shipped. If the plant material,
seeds, etc meet the necessary criteria a Phytosanitary Certificate is issued
in multiple copies. One copy is maintained by the inspector, one by the
shipper while another is placed in an envelope firmly attatched to the
shipping container. If seeds are being shipped, the certificate must be in
the package with "Phytosanitary Certificate Inside" written on the outside.
This is what I remember having to do when I was shipping iris overseas. This
was a few years ago and the procedure may have changed. The ultimate
authority is the agricultural inspector.

All iris rhizomes entering Australia and (I think) New Zealand must undergo
a 6 month quarantine period before the plants are released to the importer.
There is a rather large fee that the importer must pay for each rhizome
imported and I seem to remember that Barry Blyth told me that it can run
into the thousands of dollars depending on how many plants are imported.
