B. E. P. Q. 44, Revised December 30, 1953




This revision of the plant quarantine import restrictions of Algeria has been prepared for the information of nurserymen, plant quarantine
officialsp ano others interested in the exportation of plants and
plant products to that country.

It was prepared by r. v. T. Owrey, Division of Plant Quarantines,
from translations of the French texts of the decrees and orders concerned, as presented in "Police Phytosanitaire Algerienne" of the
Direction de LIAgriculture of Algeria of January 1952 and amendments
of December 26, 1952 and was reviewed by the Service de la Protection
des Vegetaux (Plant Protection Service).

The information included in this circular 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 of the pertinent decrees and orders. These documents should
be consulted for the exact texts.
