Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is proposing to recognize the Republic of Malta as free of swine vesicular disease, African swine fever, foot-and-mouth disease and rinderpest and low risk for classical swine fever. These changes would lift restrictions on the importation of live ruminants and swine, and products thereof, from Malta. Comments on this proposal and an associated risk evaluation are due by July 12.
