Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through Aug. 30 on the proposed revision and extension of information collections associated with exports of animals and animal products.

As part of its mission to facilitate such exports, APHIS’ Veterinary Services maintains information regarding the import health requirements of other countries. Among other things, APHIS uses information collection activities such as U.S.-origin health certificates; U.S. interstate and international certificates of health examinations for small animals; U.S.-origin health certificates for the export of horses to Canada; health certificates for the export of live finfish, mollusks, and crustaceans (and their gametes); undue hardship explanations-animals; applications for approval of inspection facility-environmental certification; annual inspections of inspection facilities; opportunities to present views concerning withdrawal of facility approval; certifications to carry livestock; inspections of vessel prior to voyage; notarized statements; aircraft cleaning and disinfection; country-specific health care; and travel time.
