Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is accepting through May 18 comments on the proposed extension of a collection of information under the safety standard for portable bed rails. Among other things, this standard requires manufacturers, including importers, to meet the collection of information requirements for marking, labeling and instructional literature for portable bed rails.

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through April 20 on information collection activities associated with the importation of commercial shipments of fresh longan with stems from Taiwan. These include phytosanitary certificates, inspection by the national plant protection organization of Taiwan, and the stamping of boxes. As a condition of entry, such imports are subject to cold treatment and special port-of-arrival inspection procedures for certain quarantine pests.
