Market access for horticulture products to international markets is gained through negotiation between the Australian Government and the Governments of our trading partners.

The International Market Access Assessment Panel (IMAAP) acts on behalf of the horticultural sector to provide transparent, unbiased and consistent market access advice to the Australian Government to support those negotiations.

While administered by Hort Innovation, the IMAAP is an independent panel which sits external to both Hort Innovation and the Australian Government. Guided by pre-defined criteria, the panel evaluates applications to gain new or improved market access to an international market.

The next IMAAP meeting will be held on Friday, 28 May and the deadline for submitting applications is Friday, 30 April.

You can access further information, evaluation criteria and application forms here.

Please email International Trade Manager Anthony Baker at if you are planning to submit an application or have any questions.
