We are proposing this action because, despite existing non-regulatory guidance on the submission of requests, few applicants provide the basic information we require to properly consider their requests. We expect that adoption of this proposal would help ensure that we are provided with the information we need to prepare a risk analysis and/or other analyses that evaluate the risks and other effects associated with the proposed change to the regulations. This information is needed for us to effectively consider the request, and submission of the information at the time the request is made allows us to proceed with our consideration of the request in a timely manner.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/10/28/04-24150/requirements-for-requests-to-amend-import-regulationsFR-Doc-04-24150

Among o … We are amending the regulations for the importation of honeybees and honeybee semen and the regulations governing the importation of bees other than honeybees, certain beekeeping byproducts, and used beekeeping equipment. Among other things, we are allowing honeybees from Australia and honeybees and honeybee germ plasm from New Zealand to be imported into the continental United States under certain conditions, imposing certain conditions on the importation into the United States of bees and related articles from Canada, and prohibiting both the interstate movement and importation of honeybees into Hawaii. This action also consolidates all of our regulations concerning all bees in the superfamily Apoidea. These changes are intended to make these regulations more consistent with international standards, update them to reflect current research and terminology, and simplify them and make them more useful.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/10/21/04-23416/bees-and-related-articlesFR-Doc-04-23416

We are also proposing to allow the distribution of the avocados during all months of the year. To reflect these proposed changes, we would also make other changes in the regulations, such as removing restrictions on the ports through which the avocados may enter the United States and the corridor through which the avocados must transit the United States. We are proposing this action in response to a request from the Government of Mexico and based on our finding that the phytosanitary measures described in this proposed rule will reduce the risk of introducing plant pests associated with Mexican Hass avocados into the United States.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/05/24/04-11709/mexican-hass-avocado-import-programFR-Doc-04-11709

Importation of Small Lots of Seed Without Phytosanitary CertificatesProposed Rule04-971604/29/2004DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTUREAgriculture DepartmentWe are proposing to amend the nursery stock regulations to allow the importation of small lots of seed under an import permit with specific conditions, as an alternative to the current phytosanitary certificate requirement. This … We are proposing to amend the nursery stock regulations to allow the importation of small lots of seed under an import permit with specific conditions, as an alternative to the current phytosanitary certificate requirement. This proposed change is necessary because several entities that import small lots of seed-individual importers, horticultural societies, arboreta, and small businesses--have had difficulty obtaining the necessary certificates and have been adversely affected by the phytosanitary certificate requirement. The proposed change would make it feasible for those entities to import small lots of seed and would ensure prompt and consistent service for such importers while continuing to protect against the introduction of plant pests into the United States and providing the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service with necessary information about the quality, quantity, and diversity of the imported material.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/04/29/04-9716/importation-of-small-lots-of-seed-without-phytosanitary-certificatesFR-Doc-04-9716

Based on the evidence in a recent pest risk assessment and an accompanying risk management document, we believe these articles can be safely imported from all provinces of Chile, provided certain conditions are met. This action would provide for the importation of clementines, mandarins, and tangerines from Chile into the United States while continuing to protect the United States against the introduction of plant pests.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/03/22/04-6325/importation-of-clementines-mandarins-and-tangerines-from-chileFR-Doc-04-6325

Our proposed amendments would, among other things, list such regions, as well as articles that would be regulated for Karnal bunt; increase the flexibility of the regulations so that they could provide more readily for the recognition of areas where Karnal bunt is not known to occur within regions where Karnal bunt is known to be present; describe conditions, including requirements for phytosanitary certificates, under which wheat and related articles from regions affected with Karnal bunt could be imported into the United States; and specify cleaning and/or disinfection requirements for imported farm machinery and other equipment used to handle or store Karnal bunt-positive seed or host crops. The proposed changes would make our regulations regarding the importation of wheat and related articles from regions affected with Karnal bunt substantively equivalent to our domestic Karnal bunt regulations and would bring the former into compliance with international agreements to which the United States is a party.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/03/03/04-4723/karnal-bunt-revision-of-regulations-for-importing-wheatFR-Doc-04-4723

We will continue to require fumigation if the fruit is distributed to commercial citrus-producing States. This final rule amends the regulations to include a reference to the island of Shikoku, along with the islands of Honshu and Kyushu, as an island from which Unshu oranges may be exported to the United States in accordance with the requirements of the regulations.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/03/02/04-4600/unshu-oranges-from-honshu-island-japanFR-Doc-04-4600

Based on a review of those treatment schedules, we determined that it was necessary to extend the duration of cold treatment for Medfly. We also amended the regulations for importing fruits and vegetables to provide that inspectors at the port of first arrival will sample and cut fruit from each shipment cold treated for Medfly to monitor the effectiveness of the cold treatment. The interim rule was necessary to protect against the introduction and dissemination of Medflies into and within the contiguous United States.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/02/02/04-2023/cold-treatment-of-fruitsFR-Doc-04-2023

We are taking this action in response to a request by the Government of China and after determining that the penjing plants established in growing media can be imported without resulting in the introduction into the United States or the dissemination within the United States of a plant pest or noxious weed. This rule will relieve restrictions that currently allow these species to be imported only as bare-rooted plants.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/01/16/04-1066/importation-of-artificially-dwarfed-plants-in-growing-media-from-the-peoples-republic-of-chinaFR-Doc-04-1066

This final rule follows a proposed rule that proposed to amend the regulations to require that logs, lumber, and wood chips of tropical species of Eucalyptus from South America be subject to more restrictive entry requirements, including treatment with fumigation with methyl bromide or heat treatment, than those currently in the regulations. In that proposed rule, we also proposed to allow wood chips derived from both tropical and temperate species of Eucalyptus from South America to be treated with a surface pesticide prior to importation. Although the more restrictive entry requirements for logs, lumber, and wood chips of tropical species of Eucalyptus are still under consideration, this action to allow wood chips of temperate species of Eucalyptus to be treated with a surface pesticide is necessary to provide an effective alternative treatment to the domestic wood pulp industry, which is interested in importing temperate wood chips of Eucalyptus from South America, while continuing to protect the United States against the introduction of plant pests.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/01/15/04-875/importation-of-eucalyptus-logs-lumber-and-wood-chips-from-south-americaFR-Doc-04-875
