Background

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting through Jan. 30 comments on the existing information collection on the importation of citrus from Peru. APHIS regulations allow the importation, under certain conditions, of fresh commercial citrus fruit from approved areas of Peru. APHIS will collect information that includes fruit fly management program inspections by national plant protection organization officials from Peru, grower registration and agreement, fruit fly trapping and monitoring, recordkeeping, and phytosanitary certificates. Without this information APHIS could not verify that (1) fruit was treated; (2) fruit flies and other pests were destroyed by treatment; or (3) the treatment was adequate to prevent the risk of plant pests from entering into the U.S.
