Fresh sand pears

Import Requirements for the Importation of Fresh Sand Pears From Japan Into the United States [Docket No. APHIS-2019-0057]. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 2

APHIS is advising the public that it has prepared a pest risk analysis relative to the importation into the United States of sand pears (Pyrus pyrifolia) fruit from Japan. Currently, sand pears may only be imported from certain authorized production areas within Japan. Based on the findings of the analysis, APHIS is proposing to authorize the importation of sand pears from all of Japan, rather than specific areas of production, and to revise the conditions under which sand pears from Japan may be imported into the United States. APHIS is making the pest risk analysis available to the public for review and comment. (Federal Register Vol. 84, No. 184, Monday, 23 September 2019, pp. 49709-49710)
