Background

Effective Aug. 26 the Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has recognized Romania as being free of highly pathogenic avian influenza and Newcastle disease. Based on a risk evaluation APHIS has determined that Romania meets the requirements to form part of the European Union Poultry Trade Region, which meets APHIS requirements for being considered low risk for these diseases and for which the importation of live birds, poultry, and poultry meat and products is harmonized. As a result, this rule lifts restrictions on the importation of carcasses, meat, parts or products of carcasses, and eggs (other than hatching eggs) of poultry, game birds, or other birds from Romania.
