PLA:TT-QUARANTIIE IMPORT RESTRICTIONS

OF THE

UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN


The following compilation of the plant-quarantine import
restrictions of Great Britain, applicable to England, Wales, Scotland,
Northern Ireland, and the Channel Islands (including the States of
Guernsey and the States of Jersey) has been prepared for the informa-
tion of nurserymen, plant-quarantine officials, and others interested
in the exportation of plants and plant products from the United States
to those countries. This revision of circular P. Q. C. A.--327
became necessary because the Destructive Insects and Pests Orders of
1922 have been superseded by the Importation of Plants Orders of 1933.

This circular was prepared by Harry B. Shaw, Plant Quarantine
Inspector, in Charge of Foreign Information Service, Division of
Foreign Plant Quarantines, from the texts of the Importation of Plants
Orders of 1933 of the respective countries, and reviewed by the appro-
priate Departments of each country concerned.

The information herein contained is believed to be correct and
complete up to the time of preparation, but it is not intended to be
used independently of, nor as a substitute for, the original texts,
and it is not to be inter-oreted as legally authoritative.

SUGGESTIONS TO CERTIFYING INSPECTORS


Under date of August i35 a joint memorandum in the
following sense was issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and
Fisheries, England; the Departmpnt of Agriculture, Scotland; and
the Ministry of Agriculture, Northern Ireland:

Character of The required phytosanitary certificate must
Inspection and be based on an examination made not more than
Certification 14 days prior to the date of shipment and it
Desired must state that the plants (or in certain
cases, a representative sample of the plants)
have been thoroughly examined and "found to be healthy, no evidence
of the presence of any insect, fungus, or pest destructive to
horticultural crops having been discovered in them." This form
of words implies that the examining officer has done everything
that is reasonably possible to assure himself that the material
examined is free from pests and diseases; it does not involve him
in any personal guaranty that the plants are absolutely and com-
pletely free from all plant diseases and pests a guaranty which
could seldom conscientiously be given.

Reinspection All shipments of plant material are subject to
on reinspection on arrival at a port of Great
Arrival Britain and the action taken will depend on the
findings. The action taken on imported plants
found to be infected by some disease or pest is based upon a recognition
of the difference in degree of importance to be attributed to diseases
and pests that have already become established in Great Britain and
those that have not. The action taken in the case of a pest or
disease new to Great Britain will be drastic, regardless of the
extent of infestation. For example, the action taken with respect
to infections of common scab, Actinomyces scabies, on potatoes,
or of the oyster-shell scale, Lepidosaphes -ilmi, on apple or other
fruit stocks, would depend on the degree of infection or infestation.
On the other hand, the finding of plant material infested with San
Jose scale (Asoidiotus perniciosus) which does Dot occur in the United
Kingdom, or thr discovery of even a single potato infected with wart
disease, Synchytrium endobioticum, a disease from which wide areas
of Great Britain are still free, would result in the exportation or
destruction of the shipment concerned. Plant quarantine inspectors,
therefore, are requested not to certify for export to Great Britain
plant products infested or infected by injurious pests or diseases
not known to occur there, and, in instances where inspection can not
be depended on to determine freedom from plant pests, plant products
which, on account of their origin, are likely to be infested or
infected therewith.




- 7


Freedom Although no regulation specifically prohibits
from Soil the importation of soil, the certification that
plants have been "thoroughly examined" implies
that the roots, as well as other parts of plants, have been inspected,
consequently, that adhering soil (if any) has been reduced to a
minimum. In other words, plants should be practically free from
soil and should be packed in such a manner as to facilitate inspection
and to prevent spoilage or injury in transit.
