Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is inviting comments through Sept. 8 on the proposed extension of an information collection associated with the regulations allowing pork and pork products and poultry carcasses, parts and products (except eggs and egg products) that are not eligible for entry into the United States to transit the U.S. from specified states in Mexico, via land border ports, for export to another country. These regulations set out conditions for such transit movements that protect against the introduction of classical swine fever or Newcastle disease, including the completion of VS Form 16-3, Application for Permit to Import or Transport Controlled Material or Organisms or Vectors; the placement of serially numbered seals on product containers; and the forwarding of a pre-arrival notification to U.S. port personnel.
