Import Restriction Eased on Meat from Ecuador and Serbia
The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has announced its final concurrence with the World Organization for Animal Health’s (OIE’s) recognition of Ecuador as being of controlled risk and Serbia as being of negligible risk for bovine spongiform encephalopathy. This action eases associated restrictions on meat imports from these countries.
Import Requirements Amended for Berries and Roses from Canada
Effective Sept. 14 APHIS is amending the entry requirements for imports of strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, and rose plants produced in Canada. Such imports will have to be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate with an additional declaration stating as follows.
“The plants have been produced and certified by the National Plant Protection Organization (NPPO) of Canada as a pest-free place of production or a pest-free production site for the strawberry blossom weevil (Anthonomus rubi) following the requirements of the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures-10. The shipment has been inspected and found to be free of the strawberry blossom weevil (Anthonomus rubi).”
