plants and seeds to be Imported, the name and address of the exporter, the
country and locality where grown, the port of entry, and the name and address
of the importer In the United States to whom the permit should be sent.'
Applications for permits should be made in advance of the proposed ship-
ments, but if, through no fault of the importer, a shipment should arrive before
a permit is received the importation will be held in customs custody at the
risk and expense of the Importer for a period not exceeding 20 days pending
the receipt of the permit.
Plant material refused entry shall, at the expense of the owner or his agent,
either be removed from United States territory immediately or, at the direction
of the owner or his agent, abandoned to the collector of customs for destruction.
Applications may be made by telegraph, in which case the information
required above must be given.
With the exception of the products enumerated under regulation 2, permits
are required for nursery stock and other plants and seeds entering the United
States for immediate transportation in bond to foreign countries.
Applications for permit to import nursery stock and other plants and seeds
from countries which do not maintain inspection must contain a definite state-
ment of the quantity to be imported. Permits for importations from such
countries, other than for tree seeds (see regulation 3), will be issued only to
cover limited quantities and the permit will be valid only for a single importa-
tion. (See appendix 1$ for list of countries which maintain inspection.)

Regulation 5. Delivery in bond pending receipt of permit will be allowed for
shipment from countries maintaining inspection

for the proper care thereof upon the filing of a bond with approved sureties
in double the invoice value (but in no case less than $100), the condition
of which shall be that the importation shall not be removed from the port of
entry, but shall be redelivered to the collector of customs within 20 days from
the date of arrival at the port, unless in the meantime the collector is pre-
sented with a proper permit; or, if the importer, consignee, or agent shall so
elect, the goods may, so far as the Department of Agriculture is concerned, be
retained in customs custody for a period not exceeding 20 days, pending the is-
suance of the permit, wholly at the risk and expense of the importer.

Regulation 6. Issuance of permits

On approval by the Secretary of Agriculture of an application for the im-
portation of nursery stock and other plants and seeds a permit will be issued
in quadruplicate. One copy will be furnished to the applicant for presenta-
tion to the customs officer at the port of entry, one copy will be mailed to the
collector of customs, and one to the inspector of the Department of Agriculture
at the port of entry, and the fourth will be filed with the application.
Permits shall be valid until revoked, unless otherwise specified therein, and
will be issued for such ports as may from time to time be approved by the
Plant Quarantine and Control Administration. The permit will be addressed
to the collector of customs at the port for which it is issued.
Regulation 7. Certification, marking, freedom from sand, soil, or earth, and
approved packing material
(As revised Jan. 14, 1935; effective Jan. 14. 1935)

which maintain inspection will not be allowed unless the invoice is accom-
panied by an original certificate, and unless each container bears a copy cer-
tificate issued by a duly authorized official of the country from which it is
exported stating that the nursery stock and other plants and seeds covered
by the certificate have been thoroughly inspected by him or under his direction

of the grower or exporter, the district or locality and the country where
grown, and a statement that the nursery stock and other plants and seeds
have been inspected by a duly authorized official and found, or believed to be,
free from insect pests and plant diseases. The original certificate shall be
signed and sealed by, and the copy certificate shall bear the seal and the actual
or reproduced signature of, a responsible inspection official of the country of
origin.
Lists of officials in foreign countries authorized to inspect nursery stock and
other plants and seeds, giving their names and official designations, will be
furnished to collectors of customs through the Secretary of the Treasury.

plants and seeds offered for entry shall be plainly and correctly marked to
show the number of the permit, the general nature and quantity of the contents,
the district or locality and country where grown, the name and address of the
exporter, and the name and address of the consignee: Provided, That all im-
portations of plants authorized under regulation 14 shall be addressed to the
United States Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Entomology and Plant
Quarantine, at the port designated in the permit. In addition to the address,

been sterilized or otherwise safeguarded in accordance with the methods pre-
scribed by the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine and is so certified
by the duly authorized inspector of the country of origin. The use of such
sand, soil, or earth as packing for plants other than bulbs, corms, seeds, and
nuts is not authorized.
All packing materials employed in connection with importations of nursery
stock and other plants and seeds are subject to approval as to such use by
the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine. Such packing material must
not previously have been used as packing or otherwise in connection with living
plants, and except as provided in the preceding paragraph for bulbs, corms,
seeds, and nuts, must be free from sand, soil, or earth, and must be certified
as meeting these conditions by the duly authorized inspector of the country of
origin.4
