Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through May 26 on the proposed extension and revision of an information collection associated with the importation of wooden handicrafts from China. This collection currently includes a merchandise tag containing the identity of the product manufacturer that must be applied to each shipping package in China prior to export and remain attached to the package until it reaches the location at which the wooden handicraft will be sold in the U.S. APHIS is now adding two other elements: a fumigation certificate verifying that the articles have been treated in accordance with 7 CFR part 305 and an application for the required permit to import timber or timber products.
