APHIS Seeks Comments on Draft Pest Risk Assessment for Dormant Live Apple (Malus spp.) Cuttings from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands

The Pacific Northwest fruit tree industry has asked APHIS to remove dormant live apple (Malus spp.) cuttings from the Not Authorized Pending Pest Risk Analysis (NAPPRA) list. The PRA is available for public review and comment until August 30, 2017.

APHIS conducted a pest risk assessment (PRA) to examine plant pest risks associated with importing commercially produced dormant live apple (Malus spp.) cuttings for planting from the European Union countries of Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands into the Continental United States and Alaska.

To view the PRA, go to APHIS Stakeholder Risk Assessment Consultation web page:https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/planthealth/import-information/commodity-import-approval-process/ct_stakeholder_consultation.

Please submit your comments by email to: PPQPRAcomments@aphis.usda.gov . We are accepting comments for 30 days. All comments will be considered and may result in changes to the pest risk assessment.
