Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is inviting comments no later than Dec. 29 on the proposed extension of an information collection associated with the importation of longan from Taiwan, which is subject to certain conditions to ensure that exotic plant pests are not introduced into the United States. These conditions include the use of cold treatment and special port-of-arrival inspection procedures for certain quarantine pests, a phytosanitary certificate accompanying the shipment stating that the fruit was inspected and found to be free of certain pests, and the stamping or printing of the individual cartons or boxes in which the fruit is shipped with a statement prohibiting the importation of this fruit into or distribution within the state of Florida.
