Notice: Recognition of Freedom from Citrus Longhorned Beetles and Asian Longhorned Beetle in Certain European Union Countries [Docket No. APHIS-2018-0074]. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 2

APHIS is notifying the public that it proposes to update the US Department of Agriculture Plants for Planting Manual by recognizing 22 European Union member States as being free from citrus longhorned beetle (CLB) and Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) and removing them from the list of countries where CLB and ALB are present. APHIS would also change the entry conditions in the manual for imports of certain host plant taxa of CLB and ALB from four of these countries (Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom) because they have previously approved genera exempted from the category of plants Not Authorized Pending Pest Risk Analysis. These changes would relieve certain restrictions on host plants of CLB and ALB from Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom while continuing to mitigate the risk of introducing quarantine pests into the United States.
