Fresh Sand Pears
Notice of Proposed Revision to Import Requirements for the Importation of Fresh Sand Pears from the Republic of Korea into the United States [Docket No. APHIS-2020-0063]. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 2
APHIS is advising the public that we have prepared a pest risk analysis relative to the importation into the United States of sand pear (Pyrus pyrifolia var. culta) fruit from the Republic of Korea. Currently, sand pear fruit may be imported into the United States from the Republic of Korea under an Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service preclearance program or as non-precleared fruit into the port of Honolulu, HI. Based on the findings of our analysis, we are proposing to authorize imports of non-precleared sand pear fruit from the Republic of Korea into all US ports as an alternative to the preclearance program. All sand pear fruit intended for importation into the United States from the Republic of Korea would be subject to a systems approach currently required for precleared fruit. We are making the pest risk analysis available to the public for review and comment. (Federal Register Vol. 86, No. 48, Monday, 15 March 2021, pp. 14301-14302).
