Unshu oranges

Import Requirements for the Importation of Fresh Unshu Oranges From Japan Into the United States [Docket No. APHIS-2019-0054]. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 2

APHIS is advising the public that it has prepared commodity import evaluation documents (CIEDs) relative to the importation into the United States of Unshu oranges from Japan. Currently, Unshu oranges imported into the United States from the islands of Shikoku or Honshu must be fumigated with methyl bromide as a mitigation for mites and mealybugs if the oranges are destined to a port of entry in Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, or Texas. Additionally, Unshu oranges from the island of Kyushu are prohibited entry into Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, or Texas. Based on the findings of the CIEDs, APHIS is proposing to remove the fumigation requirement for Unshu oranges from the islands of Honshu and Shikoku and to allow Unshu oranges from the island of Kyushu to be imported into any port of entry in the United States (excluding territories). APHIS is making the CIEDs available to the public for review and comment. (Federal Register Vol. 84, No. 184, Monday, 23 September 2019, pp. 49707-49708)
