REGULATIONS GOVERNING SANITARY EXPORT
CERTIFICATION

INTRODUCTORY NOTE

The service providing for the certification of planis and plant products to
meet the sanitary requirements of foreign countries is conducted under au-
thorlty granted In appropriation acts for the Departmlent of Agriculture. In
appropriation acts for the fiscal years prior to and including the fiscal year
1964, authority was granted to certify "domestic fresh fruits, vegetables, and
seeds, and nursery stock and other plants for propagation." In subsequent
apipropriatiton acts authority was granted to certify all domestic plants and
plant products. The changes in this retvisiton of the Inslpection aund Certifica-
tion Regulations to Meet Foreign Sanitary Requirements takes cognizance of
the extension of the authority to inspect products not heretofore certified for
export. Provisions have also been made to certify plant products on the basis
of the Inspections made by cooperating State and Federal agencies. For the
Sake of brevity the title of the inspection and certification regulations to meet
foreign sanitary requirements has been changed to "Regulations Governing
Sanitary Export Certification."

Chief, Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine.
