UYITEDT KI:TGDOI: OF GPT B3RITAIN


This revision of the digest of plant-quarantine import
restrictions of the United Kingdom of Great Britain was rendered
necessary by the promulgation of the Importation of Plants O'rder
of 1939, dated ay 16, 1939, and effective June 1, 1939. This
Order consolidates and amends the hitherto existing regulations
and revokes those which it superseded. The regulations of the
Channel Islands remain unchanged.

This circular was prepared by Harry B. Shaw, Plant
Quarantine Inspector, in Charge of Foreign Service Information,
Division of Foreign Plant Quarantines, from the text of the
Importation of Plants Order of 1939, of England and the corres-
ponding Orders of Scotland, iTorthLirn Ireland, and the Channel
Islands.

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

SUGG-ESTICTS TO C.4L71- IlTG INSPECTORS

Under date of Aug'ust 1935 a .4oint memorandum in the follow-
ing sense was issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries,
England; the Department of Agriculture, Scotland; and the Ministry
of Agriculture, iNorthern Ireland:

Character of The required phytosanitary certificate must be
Inspection and based on an examination made not more than 14 days
Certification prior to the date of shipment and it must state
Desired that the plants (or in certain cases, a representa-
tive sample of the plants) have been thoroughly
examined and "found to be healthy, no evidence of the presence of
any insect, fpmgus, or pest destructive to horticultural crops having
been discovered in themm" This form cf words implies that the
examining officer has done everything .t-at is reasonably possible
to assure himself that the material examinled is free from pests and
diseases; it does not involve him in any personal guaranty that the
plants are absolutely and completely free from all plant diseases
and pests a guarqnty which could seldom conscientiously be given.
i
Reinspection All shipments cf plant material are subject to re-
on inspection on arrival at a pert cf Great Britain and
Arrival the action taken will depend on the findings. The
action taken on imported plants found to be infected
by some disease or post is based upon a recogition of the difference
in degree of imarortance to be attrili.ted to diseases and pests that
havee already become established in Great Britain and those that have
not. The action taken in the case of a pest or disease new t C-reat
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 pot-atoes, or of the oystershell scale,
Lepidosaphes unmi ( on apples or other fruit stocks, would depend on
the degree of infection or infestation. On the other hand, the find-
ing of plant material infested with San Jose scale (Aspid*iotus
rEmiciosus Comst.), which does not occur in the United Kingdom, or the
discovery of even a single potato infected with wart disease, SLcy-
Strium endobioticum, a disease from which -ide areas of Great Britain
are still free, would result in thn oxportxtion or destruction of the
shipment concerned. Plant quarantine inspectors, therefore, are re-
quested not to certify for export to Grea..t Britain plant products
infested or infected by injurious -ests or diseases not kncwn to
occur there, and, in instances where- inspection cannot be depended
on to determine freedom from plunt pests, plant products which, on
account of their origin, are likely to be infested or infected therewith.

Freedom Although no regulation specifically prohibits the
from Soil 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 adherin- 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.
