Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has amended the regulations on the importation of mangoes from India to further clarify the requirements regarding the inspection of these mangoes. A previous technical amendment modified the regulations to allow mangoes treated with irradiation in the United States to be inspected in India by the national plant protection organization of India and subsequently by APHIS at the U.S. port of entry, rather than being jointly inspected by APHIS and the NPPO in India in all cases. However, in that technical amendment APHIS neglected to remove two references to pre-clearance inspections within India, an error that has now been corrected.
