APHIS Seeks Input for Importing Plants in Approved Growing Media

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has reopened the comment period on the draft environmental assessment (EA) for importing plants in approved growing media.

The EA considers the potential environmental effects of having a standardized set of pest risk mitigations for routine market requests to import plants in approved growing media.

This approach would eliminate the need for APHIS to prepare a unique EA for each request, making the process of reviewing import requests more efficient. Comments will be accepted until June 24, 2019.

Members of the public can submit comments at:  http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS-2018-0101.
