Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through July 29 on the extension of an information collection associated with the regulations prohibiting the importation of wheat seed, plants, straw and other products from regions affected with Karnal bunt. These regulations require certain regulated articles imported from Karnal bunt-free areas within regions regulated for Karnal bunt to be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate that must be completed by an official of the national plant protection organization of the region of origin. The certificate must include a declaration stating that the regulated articles originated in areas where Karnal bunt is not known to occur, as attested to either by survey results or by testing for bunted kernels or spores.
