The Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, Plant Quarantine Division in collaboration with the Grenada Customs & Excise Division is pleased to report that mechanisms are in place to implement a Plant Quarantine Licence Module of the ASYCUDA World System.

Traders who have received training in the use of the system are encouraged to reacquaint themselves with it, to ensure that when the module is launched every user will be able to successfully utilise it for the smooth clearance of goods.
