Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through June 23 on the proposed extension of information collections associated with imports of horses, cows, pigs, and dogs. USDA regulations require such animals imported from regions of the world where screwworm is known to exist to be inspected and, if necessary, treated for screwworm infestation. The following documents are required for such imports: an application for import or in-transit permit (VS form 17-129); a health certificate signed by a federal veterinarian of the exporting country; a declaration of importation with the importer, broker, and final destination information (VS form 17-29); and (4) a quarantine reservation.
