MYANMAR SEED PORTAL FOR AGRICULTURE SECTOR DEVELOPMENT

The Myanmar Seed Portal is the official website for all seed related information and services and managed by the Seed Division and all information, guidelines and application forms and in line with the Seed Law, the Seed Regulations and decisions made by the National Seed Committee. It was successfully launched on 11th December, 2018 by Seed Division, DOA with the support of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), part of the World Bank Group and the technical assistance from Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the Netherlands.

The MSP contains the digitized official documents related to: variety registration; seed certification; seed business licensing and trade; the national variety list; procedural flow charts; information on private seed companies and seed growers; the current Seed Law; and Seed Regulations and procedures. All procedures and application forms can be found on the website including information on: the Seed Business License; Variety Recognition Certificate; Seed Testing Laboratory Certificate; and the recommendation letters for seed imports and exports. For investors, the MSP will be the first reference point to get the information on establishing a seed company for trading seed with Myanmar. It is also available in both Myanmar and English languages.

The portal will form a stepping stone towards a fully-fledged one-stop-shop for all seed regulatory services. Procedures are currently being digitized, and soon companies and seed growers can submit all their applications online.
