Regina v Minister of Agriculture Fisheries and Food, ex parte S P Anastasiou (Pissouri) Ltd and Others (2): HL 17 Dec 2001

The claimants asserted that citrus fruit exported from Turkish Cyprus via Turkey, and certified in Turkey, should not be imported. Imports required phytosanitary certificates conforming to European standards. They asserted that the regulations required the goods to certified in their country of origin. The European court had said that certificates issued in third countries could be valid under appropriate circumstances, according to the matters certified. The question has not been settled as to the application of the certificate to the packaging in a third country and the question referred to the European Court.
