USDA Reviewing Info Collections on Poultry Exports, Imports of Tree Pest Host Material
The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through March 10 on the proposed extension of VS Form 17-6, Certificate for Poultry and Hatching Eggs for Export. Most countries require a certification that U.S. poultry and hatching eggs are disease-free, and APHIS requires exporters of poultry and hatching eggs to provide health and identification information using this form to meet these requirements.
APHIS is also accepting comments through March 10 on information collections concerning the restriction on the importation of certain articles from Canada that present the risk of being infested with emerald ash borer. APHIS collects information using phytosanitary certificates, permit applications and certificates of inspection.
