Cancellation of citrus canker surveillance standard in New Zealand

From 1993-07-01 the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries of New Zealand has cancelled its surveillance standard (NASS 157.02.01: Specifications for Surveillance for Citrus Canker) for Xanthomonas campestris pv. citri (EPPO A1 quarantine pest).
Ongoing citrus canker surveillance is, according to the results of a pest risk assessment, considered no longer necessary. It is the intention to publish the findings of the 92/93 survey for citrus canker as the formal acknowledgement of New Zealand's freedom from X. c. pv. citri.
