For more information on obtaining an Importer Compliance Agreement, refer to the Steps for Importing Commodities for Irradiation Treatment in the United States (http://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_export/plants/plant_imports/irradiation/downloads/StepsforImporting.pdf).

Failure to include a sample pallet will result in the immediate reexportation of the consignment.

A sample pallet must accompany each shipment to facilitate the port of entry inspection:

  • The pallet must be netted or wrapped
  • The sample must be clearly marked “Sample Pallet” for port of entry inspection
Port of entry inspection results will determine if the consignment can be released to the irradiation facility under APHIS-PPQ supervision:

Reexportation of the consignment will result if:
  • A designated sample pallet is not present
  • The consignment is not properly labeled or configured
  • A finding of nontarget pest(s) not mitigated by treatment

Additional Requirements
16 General requirements

The National Plant Protection Organization (NPPO) of Jamaica must provide an operational workplan to APHIS detailing the activities the NPPO of Jamaica, subject to APHIS's approval of the workplan, will carry out to meet the requirements of this section.

The mangoes must be grown at places of production that are registered with the NPPO of Jamaica and that meet the specifications detailed in the workplan. If a pest or disease is detected at the port of entry in the United states, the consignment of mangoes would be prohibited entry into the United States and further shipments from the place of production where the mangoes were grown will be prohibited until an investigation is conducted and APHIS and the NPPO of Jamaica agree the risk has been mitigated.

Treatment

The mangoes must be treated for Anastrepha spp. fruit flies in accordance with 7 CFR Part 305.

Packaging

The mangoes must be safeguarded from exposure to fruit flies from the time of treatment to export, including packaging that prevents access by fruit flies and other injurious insect pests. The package containing the mangoes could not contain any other fruit, including mangoes not qualified for importation into the United States.

Inspection

The mangoes must be inspected by the NPPO of Jamaica and found free of Coccus moestus.

Plant pathogens

The risks presented by Phomopsis mangiferae and Xanthomonas campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae must be addressed in one of the following ways:

The mangoes are treated with a broad-spectrum pre- or post-harvest fungicidal application; or
The mangoes are inspected prior to export from Jamaica and found free of P. mangiferae and X. campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae.

Phytosanitary certificate

Each consignment of fruit must be inspected by the NPPO of Jamaica and be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by the NPPO of Jamaica with one of the following additional declarations:

For mangoes that were subjected to treatment for Anastrepha spp. fruit flies in Jamaica, the additional declaration must state the mangoes were subjected to treatment in accordance with 7 CFR Part 305 for Anastrepha spp. fruit flies; that the mangoes were inspected and found free of C. moestus; and that the mangoes were either treated with a pre- or post-harvest fungicidal application or they were inspected prior to export and found free of P. mangiferae and X. campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae.

If the mangoes are to be treated for Anastrepha spp. fruit flies upon arrival in the United States, the additional declaration must state the mangoes were inspected and found free of C. moestus and were either treated with a pre- or post-harvest fungicidal application or inspected prior to export and found free of P. mangiferae and X. campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae.
