Quarantine regulations etc. are no problem for us, since our institution 
is the federal biological research centre for agriculture and forestry 
(BBA, a governmental institution). We are also competent in phytosanitary 
or quarantine questions. Our institution develops detection systems for 
quarantine pathogens. Sending fungal isolates via or infected plant 
material to us shall not be problematically. 
Thanks Olaf
