                               EXPLANATION

    The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and 
permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive 
departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Code is divided 
into 50 titles which represent broad areas subject to Federal 
regulation. Each title is divided into chapters which usually bear the 
name of the issuing agency. Each chapter is further subdivided into 
parts covering specific regulatory areas.
    Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year 
and issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows:

Title 1 through Title 16.................................as of January 1
Title 17 through Title 27..................................as of April 1
Title 28 through Title 41...................................as of July 1
Title 42 through Title 50................................as of October 1

    The appropriate revision date is printed on the cover of each 
volume.

LEGAL STATUS

    The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially 
noticed (44 U.S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie 
evidence of the text of the original documents (44 U.S.C. 1510).

HOW TO USE THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS

    The Code of Federal Regulations is kept up to date by the individual 
issues of the Federal Register. These two publications must be used 
together to determine the latest version of any given rule.
    To determine whether a Code volume has been amended since its 
revision date (in this case, January 1, 2006), consult the ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected (LSA),'' which is issued monthly, and the ``Cumulative 
List of Parts Affected,'' which appears in the Reader Aids section of 
the daily Federal Register. These two lists will identify the Federal 
Register page number of the latest amendment of any given rule.

EFFECTIVE AND EXPIRATION DATES

    Each volume of the Code contains amendments published in the Federal 
Register since the last revision of that volume of the Code. Source 
citations for the regulations are referred to by volume number and page 
number of the Federal Register and date of publication. Publication 
dates and effective dates are usually not the same and care must be 
exercised by the user in determining the actual effective date. In 
instances where the effective date is beyond the cut-off date for the 
Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future effective date. In 
those instances where a regulation published in the Federal Register 
states a date certain for expiration, an appropriate note will be 
inserted following the text.

OMB CONTROL NUMBERS

    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511) requires 
Federal agencies to display an OMB control number with their information 
collection request.

[[Page vi]]

Many agencies have begun publishing numerous OMB control numbers as 
amendments to existing regulations in the CFR. These OMB numbers are 
placed as close as possible to the applicable recordkeeping or reporting 
requirements.

OBSOLETE PROVISIONS

    Provisions that become obsolete before the revision date stated on 
the cover of each volume are not carried. Code users may find the text 
of provisions in effect on a given date in the past by using the 
appropriate numerical list of sections affected. For the period before 
January 1, 2001, consult either the List of CFR Sections Affected, 1949-
1963, 1964-1972, 1973-1985, or 1986-2000, published in 11 separate 
volumes. For the period beginning January 1, 2001, a ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected'' is published at the end of each CFR volume.

INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE

    What is incorporation by reference? Incorporation by reference was 
established by statute and allows Federal agencies to meet the 
requirement to publish regulations in the Federal Register by referring 
to materials already published elsewhere. For an incorporation to be 
valid, the Director of the Federal Register must approve it. The legal 
effect of incorporation by reference is that the material is treated as 
if it were published in full in the Federal Register (5 U.S.C. 552(a)). 
This material, like any other properly issued regulation, has the force 
of law.
    What is a proper incorporation by reference? The Director of the 
Federal Register will approve an incorporation by reference only when 
the requirements of 1 CFR part 51 are met. Some of the elements on which 
approval is based are:
    (a) The incorporation will substantially reduce the volume of 
material published in the Federal Register.
    (b) The matter incorporated is in fact available to the extent 
necessary to afford fairness and uniformity in the administrative 
process.
    (c) The incorporating document is drafted and submitted for 
publication in accordance with 1 CFR part 51.
    Properly approved incorporations by reference in this volume are 
listed in the Finding Aids at the end of this volume.
    What if the material incorporated by reference cannot be found? If 
you have any problem locating or obtaining a copy of material listed in 
the Finding Aids of this volume as an approved incorporation by 
reference, please contact the agency that issued the regulation 
containing that incorporation. If, after contacting the agency, you find 
the material is not available, please notify the Director of the Federal 
Register, National Archives and Records Administration, Washington DC 
20408, or call 202-741-6010.

CFR INDEXES AND TABULAR GUIDES

    A subject index to the Code of Federal Regulations is contained in a 
separate volume, revised annually as of January 1, entitled CFR Index 
and Finding Aids. This volume contains the Parallel Table of Statutory 
Authorities and Agency Rules (Table I). A list of CFR titles, chapters, 
and parts and an alphabetical list of agencies publishing in the CFR are 
also included in this volume.
    An index to the text of ``Title 3--The President'' is carried within 
that volume.
    The Federal Register Index is issued monthly in cumulative form. 
This index is based on a consolidation of the ``Contents'' entries in 
the daily Federal Register.
    A List of CFR Sections Affected (LSA) is published monthly, keyed to 
the revision dates of the 50 CFR titles.

    Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). The Animal and 
Plant Health Inspection Service of the United States Department of 
Agriculure.
    Black stem rust. The disease commonly known as the black stem rust 
of grains (Puccinia graminis).
    Certificate. A document in which an inspector, or a person operating 
under a compliance agreement, affirms that a specified regulated article 
has met the criteria in Sec. 301.38-5(b) of this subpart and may be 
moved interstate to any destination.
    Compliance agreement. A written agreement between a State that is a

APHIS and such person, in which that person agrees to comply with this 
subpart.
    Departmental permit. A document issued by the Administrator in which 
he or she affirms that interstate movement of the regulated article 
identified on the document is for scientific or experimental purposes, 
and that the regulated article is eligible for interstate movement under 
the conditions specified on the Departmental permit and found by the 
Administrator to be adequate to prevent the introduction of rust-
susceptible varieties of the genera Berberis, Mahoberberis, and Mahonia 
into protected areas.
    Inspector. Any APHIS employee or other person authorized by the 
Administrator in accordance with law to enforce this subpart.
    Interstate. From any State into or through any other State.
    Limited permit. A document issued by an inspector to allow the

articles not eligible for certification under this subpart to a 
specified destination outside the protected area.
    Moved (movement, move). Shipped, offered to a common carrier for 
shipment, received for transportation or transported by a common 
carrier, or carried, transported, moved, or allowed to be moved. 
``Movement'' and ``move'' shall be construed in accordance with this 
definition.

joint stock company, partnership, society, or any other legal entity.
    Protected area. Those States or counties designated in Sec. 301.38-
3(c) of this subpart.
    Rust-resistant plants. All plants of the genera Berberis, 
Mahoberberis, and Mahonia species, and their progeny, that have proven 
resistant to black stem rust during testing by the United States 
Department of Agriculture,\2\ and that are listed as rust-resistant 
under Sec. 301.38-2 (a)(2) and (a)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Testing is performed by the Agricultural Research Service of 
USDA as follows: In a greenhouse, the suspect plant, or test subject, is 
placed under a screen with a control plant, i.e., a known rust-
susceptible variety of Berberis, Mahoberberis, or Mahonia. Infected 
wheat stems, a primary host of black stem rust, are placed on top of the 
screen. The plants are moistened and maintained in 100% humidity, 
causing the spores to swell and fall on the plants lying under the 
screen. The plants are then observed for 7 days at 20-80% relative 
humidity. This test procedure is repeated 12 times. If in all 12 tests, 
the rust-susceptible plant shows signs of infection after 7 days and the 
test plants do not, USDA will declare the test plant variety rust-
resistant. The tests must be performed on new growth, just as the leaves 
are unfolding.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rust-susceptible plants. All plants of the genera Berberis, 
Mahoberberis, and Mahonia species not listed as rust-resistant under 
Sec. 301.38-2 (a)(2) and (a)(3).

Sec. 301.38-3  Protected areas.

    (a) The Administrator may designate as a protected area in paragraph 
(c) of this section any State that has eradicated rust-susceptible 
plants of the genera Berberis, Mahoberberis, and Mahonia under the 
cooperative Federal-State eradication program. In addition, the State 
must employ personnel with responsibility for the issuance and 
withdrawal of certificates in accordance with Sec. 301.38-5, and 
maintain and enforce an inspection program under which every plant 
nursery within the State is inspected at least once each year to ensure 
that they are free of rust-susceptible plants. During the requisite 
nursery inspections, all nursery stock shall be examined to determine 
that it consists only of rust-resistant varieties of the genera 
Berberis, Mahoberberis, and Mahonia, and that the plants are true to 
type. Plants that do not meet this criteria must be destroyed.
    (b) The Administrator may designate as a protected area any county 
within a State, rather than the entire State, if areas within the State 
have eradicated rust-susceptible plants of the genera Berberis, 
Mahoberberis, and Mahonia under the cooperative Federal-State program, 
and;
    (1) The State employs personnel with responsibility for the issuance 
and withdrawal of certificates in accordance with Sec. 301.38-5;
    (2) The State is enforcing restrictions on the intrastate movement 
of the regulated articles that are equivalent to those imposed by this 
subpart on the interstate movement of regulated articles, as determined 
by the Administrator; and
    (3) The State maintains and enforces an inspection program under 
which every plant nursery within the county is inspected at least once 
each year to ensure that plant nurseries within that area are free of 
rust-susceptible plants of the genera Berberis, Mahoberberis, and 
Mahonia. During the requisite nursery inspections, all nursery stock 
shall be examined to determine that it consists only of rust-resistant 
varieties of the genera Berberis, Mahoberberis, and Mahonia, and that 
the plants are true to type. Plants that do not meet this criteria must 
be destroyed.
    (c) All seed used to propagate plants of the genera Berberis, 
Mahoberberis, and Mahonia in protected areas, and all seed used to 
propagate plants of the genera Berberis, Mahoberberis, and Mahonia that 
are certified as rust-resistant for interstate movement into protected 
areas, must be produced at properties where a State inspector has 
verified that no wild or domesticated rust-susceptible plants are 
growing at or within one-half mile of the property.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Persons performing the inspections must be able to recognize 
rust-susceptible varieties of Berberis, Mahoberberis, and Mahonia. 
Inspectors must work side by side, 10 to 20 feet apart, and walk outward 
away from the property a distance of one-half mile measured from the 
edge of the property, and observe all plants growing in the half-mile 
band. The distance between the inspectors may vary within this range, 
depending upon the visibility of the plant growth. In areas with low 
brush and flat terrain, the inspectors may be the maximum distance of 20 
feet apart if they can observe all plants growing within 10 feet of 
them. In areas of high plant growth or hilly terrain, the inspectors 
must be closer together due to limited or obstructed visibility. 
Inspectors must observe all plants growing between themselves and the 
mid-point of the distance between themselves and the next inspector. 
This process must be repeated so that the entire band, measured from the 
border of the property to the circumference of an imaginary circle 
having the property as its mid-point, is visually inspected in this 
manner.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (d) The following are designated as protected areas:
    (1) The States of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, 
Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, 
Pennsylvania, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
    (2) The following counties in the State of Washington: Adams, 
Asotin, Benton, Chelan, Columbia, Douglas, Ferry, Franklin, Garfield, 
Grant, Kittitas, Klickitat, Lincoln, Okanogan, Pend Oreille, Spokane, 
Stevens, Walla Walla, Whitman, Yakima.
    (e) Each State that is a protected area or that encompasses a 
protected area must submit annually to the Administrator a written 
statement, signed by an inspector, assuring APHIS that all nursery 
inspections have been

[[Page 17]]

performed in accordance with this section. The statement must be 
submitted by January 1st of each year, and must include a list of the 
nurseries inspected and found free of rust-susceptible plants.
    (f) The Administrator may remove a protected area from the list of 
designated protected areas in paragraph (c) of this section if he or she 
determines that it no longer meets the criteria of paragraph (a) or 
(b)(1) through (3) of this section. A hearing will be held to resolve 
any conflict as to any material fact. Rules of practice for the hearing 
shall be adopted by the Administrator.

under this subpart.
    (b) Protected areas--(1) Prohibited movement. The following 
regulated articles are prohibited from moving interstate into or through 
any protected area:
    (i) All Berberis seedlings and plants of less than 2 years' growth, 
and rust-susceptible Berberis plants, seeds, fruits, and other plant 
parts capable of propagation.
    (ii) Rust-susceptible Mahoberberis and Mahonia plants, seedlings, 
seeds, fruits, and other plant parts capable of propagation.
    (2) Restricted movement: The following regulated articles may be 
moved interstate into or through a protected area with a certificate 
issued and attached in accordance with Sec. Sec. 301.38-5 and 301.38-7 
of this subpart:
    (i) Plants of at least two years' growth, seeds, fruits, and other 
plant parts capable of propagation of the genus Berberis that are 
designated as rust-resistant in Sec. 301.38-2(a)(2) of this subpart;
    (ii) Plants, seedlings, seeds, fruits, and other plant parts capable 
of propagation of the genera Mahoberberis and Mahonia that are 
designated as rust-resistant in Sec. 301.38-2(a)(3) of this subpart.
    (c) An inspector may issue a limited permit to allow a regulated 
article not eligible for certification under Sec. 301.38-4(b)(2) to 
move interstate into or through a protected area to a specified 
destination that is stated in the permit and is outside the protected 
area, if the requirements of all other applicable Federal domestic plant 
quarantines are met. A regulated article moved interstate under a 
limited permit must be placed in a closed sealed container that prevents 
unauthorized removal of the regulated article, and that remains sealed 
until the regulated article reaches the final destination stated in the 
permit. At the final destination, the sealed container must be opened 
only in the presence of an inspector or with the authorization of an 
inspector obtained expressly for that shipment.
    (d) The United States Department of Agriculture may move any 
regulated article interstate into or through a protected area in 
accordance with the conditions determined necessary to prevent the 
introduction or spread of black stem rust in protected areas, as 
specified in a Departmental permit issued for this purpose.

Sec. 301.45-2  Authorization to designate and terminate designation of 
generally infested areas.

    (a) Generally infested areas. The Administrator shall list as 
generally infested areas in Sec. 301.45-3 each State or each portion 
thereof in which a gypsy moth general infestation has been found by an 
inspector, or each portion of a State which the Administrator deems 
necessary to regulate because of its proximity to infestation or its 
inseparability for quarantine enforcement purposes from infested 
localities; Except that, an area shall not be listed as a generally 
infested area if the Administrator has determined that:
    (1) The area is subject to a gypsy moth eradication program 
conducted by the Federal government or a State government in accordance 
with the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) alternative of the Final 
Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on Gypsy Moth Suppression and 
Eradication Projects that was filed with the United States Environmental 
Protection Agency on March 18, 1985; and
    (2) State or Federal delimiting trapping surveys conducted in 
accordance with Section II, ``Survey Procedures--Gypsy Moth'' of the 
Gypsy Moth Treatment Manual show that the average number of gypsy moths 
caught per trap is less than 10 and that the trapping surveys show that 
the eradication program is effectively diminishing the gypsy moth 
population of the area.
    (b) Less than an entire State will be designated as a generally 
infested area only if the Administrator has determined that:
    (1) The State has adopted and is enforcing a quarantine or 
regulation which imposes restrictions on the intrastate movement of the 
regulated articles which are substantially the same as those which are 
imposed with respect to the interstate movement of such articles under 
this subpart; and,
    (2) The designation of less than the entire State as a generally 
infested area will be adequate to prevent the artificial interstate 
spread of infestations of the gypsy moth.
    (c) Temporary designation of areas as generally infested areas. The 
Administrator or an inspector may temporarily designate any area in any 
State as a

[[Page 22]]

generally infested area in accordance with the criteria specified in 
paragraph (a) of this section. An inspector will give written notice of 
the designation to the owner or person in possession of the area and 
thereafter, the interstate movement of any regulated article from such 
areas is subject to the applicable provisions of this subpart. As soon 
as practicable, each generally infested area will be added to the list 
in Sec. 301.45-3 or the designation will be terminated by the 
Administrator or an authorized inspector, and notice thereof shall be 
given to the owner or person in possession of the areas.
    (d) Termination of designation as a generally infested area. The 
Administrator shall terminate the designation of any area as a generally 
infested area whenever the Administrator determines that the area no 
longer requires designation under the criteria specified in paragraph 
(a) of this section.

Sec. 301.45-4  Conditions governing the interstate movement of regulated 
articles and outdoor household articles from generally infested areas.

    (a) Regulated articles and outdoor household articles from generally 
infested areas. (1) A regulated article, except for an article moved in 
accordance with paragraph (c) of this section, shall not be moved 
interstate from any generally infested area into or through any area 
that is not generally infested unless a certificate or permit has been 
issued and attached to such regulated article in accordance with 
Sec. Sec. 301.45-5 and 301.45-8.3
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Requirements under all other applicable Federal domestic plant 
quarantines must also be met.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (2) An outdoor household article shall not be moved interstate from 
any generally infested area into or through any area that is not 
generally infested

[[Page 26]]

unless a certificate or OHA document has been issued and attached to 
such outdoor household article in accordance with Sec. Sec. 301.45-5 
and 301.45-8.
    (b) A regulated article originating outside of any generally 
infested area may be moved interstate directly through any generally 
infested area without a certificate or permit if the point of origin of 
the article is clearly indicated by shipping documents, its identity has 
been maintained, and it has been safeguarded against infestation while 
in any generally infested area during the months of April through June. 
To be safeguarded, the article must be in an enclosed vehicle, or 
completely enclosed by a covering adequate to prevent access by gypsy 
moths, such as canvas, plastic, or closely woven cloth.
    (c) A regulated article originating in a generally infested area may 
be moved interstate from a generally infested area without a certificate 
if it complies with (1) or (2) of this paragraph:
    (1) The article is moved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for 
experimental or scientific purposes, and:
    (i) Is moved pursuant to a permit issued for each article by the 
Administrator;
    (ii) Is moved in accordance with conditions specified on the permit 
and found by the Administrator to be adequate to prevent the 
dissemination of the gypsy moth, i.e., conditions of treatment, 
processing, shipment, and disposal; and
    (iii) Is moved with a tag or label securely attached to the outside 
of the container containing the article or securely attached to the 
article itself if not in a container, and with such tag or label bearing 
a permit number corresponding to the number of the permit issued for 
such article.
    (2) The article is logs, pulpwood, or wood chips, and the person 
moving the article has attached a signed accurate statement to the 
waybill or other shipping documents accompanying the article stating 
that he or she has inspected the article in accordance with the Gypsy 
Moth Program Manual no more than 5 days prior to the date of movement 
and has found no life stages of gypsy moth on the article.

[58 FR 39423, July 23, 1993, as amended at 70 FR 33268, June 7, 2005]



Sec. 301.45-5  Issuance and cancellation of certificates, limited 
permits, and outdoor household article documents.

    (a) A certificate may be issued by an inspector for the movement of 
a regulated article or an outdoor household article (OHA) if the 
inspector determines that it is eligible for certification for movement 
to any destination under all Federal domestic plant quarantines 
applicable to such article and:
    (1) It has originated in noninfested premises in a generally 
infested area and has not been exposed to the gypsy moth while within 
the generally infested area; or
    (2) The inspector inspects the article no more than 5 days prior to 
the date of movement during the months of April through August (14 days 
prior to the date of movement from September through March) and finds it 
to be free of the gypsy moth; or
    (3) It has been treated under the direction of an inspector to 
destroy the gypsy moth in accordance with the treatment manual and part 
305 of this chapter; or
    (4) It has been grown, produced, manufactured, stored, or handled in 
such a manner that no infestation would be transmitted thereby as 
determined by an inspector.
    (b) Limited permits may be issued by an inspector to allow 
interstate movement of any regulated article under this subpart to 
specified destinations for specified handling, utilization, processing, 
or treatment in accordance with the treatment manual, when, upon 
evaluation of all of the circumstances involved in each case, the 
Administrator determines that such movement will not result in the 
spread of the gypsy moth because life stages of the moths will be 
destroyed by such specified handling, utilization, processing or 
treatment, or the pest will not survive in areas to which shipped, and 
the requirements of all other applicable Federal domestic plant 
quarantines have been met.

[[Page 27]]

    (c) Certificate and limited permit forms may be issued by an 
inspector to any person for use for subsequent shipments of regulated 
articles provided the person is operating under a compliance agreement. 
Any person operating under a compliance agreement may reproduce the 
forms as needed to attach them to regulated articles moved under a 
compliance agreement. Any person operating under a compliance agreement 
may execute and issue the certificate forms or reproduction of such 
forms, for the interstate movement of regulated articles from the 
premises of such person identified in the compliance agreement, if the 
person has treated such regulated articles as specified in the 
compliance agreement, and if the regulated articles are eligible for 
certification for movement to any destination under all applicable 
Federal domestic plant quarantines. Any person operating under a 
compliance agreement may execute and issue the limited permit forms, or 
reproductions of such forms, for the interstate movement of regulated 
articles to specified destinations when an inspector has made the 
determinations specified in paragraph (b) of this section.
    (d) A certificate may be issued by a qualified certified applicator 
for the interstate movement of any outdoor household article or mobile 
home if such qualified certified applicator determines the following:
    (1) That the article has been inspected by the qualified certified 
applicator and found to be free of any life stage of the gypsy moth; or
    (2) That the article has been treated by, or treated under the 
direct supervision of, the qualified certified applicator to destroy any 
life stage of the gypsy moth in accordance with methods and procedures 
prescribed in section III of the Gypsy Moth Program Manual.
    (e) An OHA document may be issued by the owner of an outdoor 
household article for the interstate movement of the article if such 
person has inspected the outdoor household article and has found it to 
be free of any life stage of gypsy moth.
    (f) Any certificate or permit which has been issued or authorized 
may be withdrawn by an inspector if he determines that the holder 
thereof has not complied with any condition for the use of such 
document. The reasons for the withdrawal shall be confirmed in writing 
as promptly as circumstances permit. Any person whose certificate or 
permit has been withdrawn may appeal the decision in writing to the 
Administrator within ten (10) days after receiving the written 
notification of the withdrawal. The appeal shall state all of the facts 
and reasons upon which the person relies to show that the certificate or 
permit was wrongfully withdrawn. The Administrator shall grant or deny 
the appeal, in writing, stating the reasons for his decision as promptly 
as circumstances permit. If there is a conflict as to any material fact, 
a hearing shall be held to resolve such conflict. Rules of practice 
concerning such a hearing will be adopted by the Administrator.

70 FR 33268, June 7, 2005]



Sec. 301.45-6  Compliance agreement and cancellation thereof.

    (a) Any person engaged in the business of growing, handling, or 
moving regulated articles may enter into a compliance agreement to 
facilitate the movement of such articles under this subpart. Qualified 
certified applicators must enter into compliance agreements, in 
accordance with the definition of qualified certified applicator in 
Sec. 301.45-1. A compliance agreement shall specify safeguards 
necessary to prevent spread of the gypsy moth, such as disinfestation 
practices or application of chemical materials in accordance with the 
treatment manual and part 305 of this chapter. Compliance agreement 
forms may be obtained from the Administrator or an inspector.
    (b) Any compliance agreement may be canceled by the inspector who is 
supervising its enforcement, orally or in writing, whenever the 
inspector finds that such person has failed to comply with the 
conditions of the agreement. If the cancellation is oral, the decision 
and the reasons therefore shall be confirmed in writing, as promptly as 
circumstances permit. Any person whose

[[Page 28]]

compliance agreement has been canceled may appeal the decision in

Sec. 301.48-2  Authorization to designate, and terminate designation 
of, regulated airports.

    (a) An inspector may declare any airport within a quarantined State 
to be a regulated airport when he or she determines that adult 
populations of Japanese beetle exist during daylight hours at the 
airport to the degree that aircraft constitute a threat to spread the 
Japanese beetle and aircraft destined for the States listed in Sec.

[44 FR 24035, Apr. 24, 1979, as amended at 61 FR 32640, June 25, 1996]



Sec. 301.48-4  Conditions governing the interstate movement of regulated 
articles from quarantined States.

    A regulated article may be moved interstate from a regulated airport 
to

[[Page 31]]

any State \1\ designated in Sec. 301.48(b) only if:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Requirements under all other applicable Federal domestic plant 
quarantines must be met.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (a) An inspector, upon visual inspection of the airport and/or the 
aircraft, determines that the regulated article does not present a 
threat to spread the Japanese beetle because adult beetle populations 
are not present; or
    (b) The aircraft is opened and loaded only while it is enclosed 
inside a hangar that an inspector has determined to be free of and 
safeguarded against Japanese beetle; or
    (c) The aircraft is loaded during the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 7:00 
a.m. only or lands and departs during those hours and, in either 
situation, is kept completely closed while on the ground during the 
hours of 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; or
    (d) If opened and loaded between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 
p.m., the aircraft is inspected, treated, and safeguarded. Inspection, 
treatment, and safeguarding must be done either under a compliance 
agreement in accordance with Sec. 301.48-8 or under the direct 
supervision of an inspector. On a case-by-case basis, inspectors will 
determine which of the following conditions, and any supplemental 
conditions deemed necessary by the Administrator to prevent the spread 
of Japanese beetle, are required:
    (1) All openings of the aircraft must be closed or safeguarded 
during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. by exclusionary devices or by 
other means approved by the Administrator.
    (2) All cargo containers that have not been safeguarded in a 
protected area must be inspected immediately prior to and during the 
loading process. All personnel must check their clothing immediately 
prior to entering the aircraft. All Japanese beetles found must be 
removed and destroyed.
    (3) All areas around doors and hatches or other openings in the 
aircraft must be inspected prior to removing the exclusionary devices. 
All Japanese beetles found must be removed and destroyed. All doors and 
hatches must be closed immediately after the exclusionary devices are 
moved away from the aircraft.
    (4) Aircraft must be treated in accordance with part 305 of this 
chapter no more than 1 hour before loading. Particular attention should 
be paid to the ball mat area and the holes around the main entrance. The 
aircraft must then be aerated under safeguard conditions as required by 
part 305 of this chapter.
    (5) Aircraft treatment records must be maintained by the applicator 
completing or supervising the treatment for a period of 2 years. These 
records must be provided upon request for review by an inspector. 
Treatment records shall include the pesticide used, the date of 
application, the location where the pesticide was applied (airport and 
aircraft), the amount of pesticide applied, and the name of the 
applicator.
    (6) When a designated aircraft is replaced with an alternate one 
just prior to departure (the procedure known as ``tail swapping''), the 
alternate aircraft must be inspected and all Japanese beetles must be 
removed. The aircraft must be safeguarded by closing all openings and 
hatches or by equipping the aircraft with exclusionary devices until the 
aircraft is ready for use. During loading, all treatment and safeguard 
requirements applicable to regularly scheduled aircraft must be 
implemented.
    (7) Aircraft may be retreated in the noninfested State if live 
Japanese beetles are found.
    (8) Notification of unscheduled commercial flights and of all 
military flights must be given at least 1 hour before departure to the 
appropriate person in the destination airport of any of the States 
listed in Sec. 301.48(b). Notification of arriving military flights 
should also be given to base commanders to facilitate the entrance of 
Federal and/or State inspectors onto the base if necessary.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture disclaims liability for any costs 
incident to inspections or compliance with the provisions of the 
quarantine and regulations in this subpart other than for the services 
of the inspector.



Sec. 301.48-8  Compliance agreements and cancellation.

    (a) Any person engaged in the business of moving regulated articles 
may enter into a compliance agreement to facilitate the movement of such 
articles under this subpart. Any person who enters into a compliance 
agreement, and employees or agents of that person, must allow an 
inspector access to all records regarding treatment of aircraft and to 
all areas where loading, unloading, and treatment of aircraft occurs.
    (b) A compliance agreement may be canceled by an inspector, orally 
or in writing, whenever he or she determines that the person who has 
entered into the compliance agreement has failed to comply with the 
agreement or this subpart. If the cancellation is oral, the cancellation 
and the reasons for the cancellation will be confirmed in writing within 
20 days of oral notification. Any person whose compliance agreement has 
been canceled may appeal the decision, in writing, to the Administrator 
within 10 days after receiving written notification of the cancellation. 
The appeal must state all of the facts and reasons upon which the person 
relies to show that the compliance agreement was wrongfully canceled. A 
hearing will be held to resolve any conflict as to any material fact. 
The Administrator shall adopt rules of practice for the hearing. An 
appeal shall be granted or denied, in writing, as promptly as 
circumstances allow, and the reasons for the decision shall be stated. 
The compliance agreement will remain canceled pending the decision on 
the appeal.

    (ii) Based on inspection of the premises of origin, if the regulated 
article is a greenhouse-grown pine (such as bonsai), that the greenhouse 
is free from the pine shoot beetle and is screened to prevent entry of 
the pine shoot beetle; or
    (iii) Based on inspection of the regulated article, if the regulated 
article is a pine seedling or a pine transplant and

[[Page 38]]

is no greater than 36 inches high with a bole diameter at soil level of 
1 inch or less, that it is free from the pine shoot beetle; or
    (iv) Based on inspection by an inspector (branch tip-by-branch tip) 
of pine nursery stock, that it is free from the pine shoot beetle; or
    (v) If the regulated article is a pine log with bark attached or 
pine lumber with bark attached or a pine stump, that its source tree has 
been felled during the period of July through October; and
    (2)(i) The regulated article will be moved through the quarantined 
area during October, November, or December, or when the ambient air 
temperature is below 10 [deg]C (50 [deg]F); or
    (ii) The regulated article will be moved through the quarantined 
area during the period of January through September, if the ambient air

or completely enclosed by a covering adequate to prevent access by the 
pine shoot beetle; or
    (iii) The pine log with bark attached, pine lumber with bark 
attached, or pine stump, from a tree felled during the period of July 
through October, will be shipped interstate from the quarantined area 
during the period of July through October; and
    (3) The regulated article is to be moved in compliance with any 
additional conditions deemed necessary under section 414 of the Plant 
Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) \4\ to prevent the spread of the pine 
shoot beetle; and
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ An inspector may hold, seize, quarantine, treat, apply other 
remedial measures to, destroy, or otherwise dispose of plants, plant 
pests, or other articles in accordance with sections 414, 421, and 434 
of the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714, 7731, and 7754).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (4) The regulated article is eligible for unrestricted movement 
under all other Federal domestic plant quarantines and regulations

    (b) An inspector \5\ will issue a limited permit for the interstate 
movement of a regulated article if the inspector determines that:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See footnote 3 to Sec. 301.50-5(a).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1)(i) The regulated article is to be moved interstate to a 
specified destination for specified handling, processing, or utilization 
(the destination and other conditions to be listed in the limited 
permit), and this interstate movement will not result in the spread of 
the pine shoot beetle. If the regulated article is part of a shipment of 
pine Christmas trees, the inspector will make a pest-risk determination 
on the basis of an inspection conducted in accordance with Sec. 301.50-
5(c) of this paragraph; or
    (ii) The regulated article is to be moved interstate from a 
quarantined area to a quarantined area and will transit any non-
quarantined area in an enclosed vehicle or completely enclosed by a 
covering adequate to prevent access by the pine shoot beetle; and
    (2) The regulated article is to be moved in compliance with any 
additional conditions deemed necessary under section 414 of the Plant 
Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) to prevent the spread of the pine shoot 
beetle; and
    (3) The regulated article is eligible for interstate movement under 
all other Federal domestic plant quarantines and regulations applicable 
to the regulated article.
    (c) The number of pine Christmas trees randomly selected for 
inspection is determined by the size and type of shipment, in accordance 
with the following tables. If a shipment mixes painted and natural 
trees, the inspection procedure for painted trees will apply.

  trees that remain unsold as of December 25 must be destroyed by
  burning or chipping, or must be fumigated, prior to January 1.''

    (d) Certificates and limited permits for use for interstate movement 
of regulated articles may be issued by an inspector or person operating 
under a compliance agreement. A person operating under a compliance 
agreement may issue a certificate for the interstate movement of a 
regulated article if an inspector has determined that the regulated 
article is otherwise eligible for a certificate in accordance with 
paragraph (a) of this section. A person operating under a compliance 
agreement may issue a limited permit for interstate movement of a 
regulated article when an inspector has determined that the regulated 
article is eligible for a limited permit in accordance with paragraph 
(b) of this section.
    (e) Any certificate or limited permit that has been issued may be 
withdrawn by an inspector orally, or in writing, if he or she determines 
that the holder of the certificate or limited permit has not complied 
with all conditions under this subpart for the use of the certificate or 
limited permit. If the withdrawal is oral, the withdrawal and the 
reasons for the withdrawal shall be confirmed in writing as promptly as 
circumstances allow. Any person whose certificate or limited permit has 
been withdrawn may appeal the decision in writing to the Administrator 
within 10 days after receiving the written notification of the 
withdrawal. The appeal must state all of the facts and reasons upon 
which the person relies to show that the certificate or limited permit 
was wrongfully withdrawn. As promptly as circumstances allow, the 
Administrator will grant or deny the appeal, in writing, stating the 
reasons for the decision. A hearing will be held to resolve any conflict 
as to any material fact. Rules of practice concerning such a hearing 
will be adopted by the Administrator.

canceled may appeal the decision, in writing, within 10 days after 
receiving written notification of the cancellation. The appeal must 
state all of the facts and reasons upon which the person relies to show 
that the compliance agreement was wrongfully canceled. As promptly as 
circumstances allow, the Administrator will grant or deny the appeal, in 
writing, stating the reasons for the decision. A hearing will be held to 
resolve any conflict as to any material fact. Rules of practice 
concerning such a hearing will be adopted by the Administrator.

Sec. 301.50-8  Attachment and disposition of certificates and limited 
permits.

    (a) A certificate or limited permit required for the interstate 
movement of a regulated article must be attached, at all times during 
the interstate movement, to the outside of the container containing the 
regulated article, or to the regulated article itself, if not in a 
container. The requirements of this section may also be met by attaching 
the certificate or limited permit to the consignee's copy of the 
waybill, provided the regulated article is sufficiently described on the 
certificate or limited permit and on the waybill to identify the 
regulated article.
    (b) The certificate or limited permit for the interstate movement of

considers necessary to regulate because of its inseparability for 
quarantine enforcement purposes from localities where Asian longhorned 
beetle has been found. Less than an entire State will be designated as a 
quarantined area only if the Administrator determines that:
    (1) The State has adopted and is enforcing restrictions on the 
intrastate movement of regulated articles that are equivalent to those 
imposed by this subpart on the interstate movement of regulated

nonquarantined area as a quarantined area in accordance with the 
criteria specified in paragraph (a) of this section. The Administrator 
will give written notice of this designation to the owner or person in 
possession of the nonquarantined area, or, in the case of publicly owned 
land, to the person responsible for the management of the nonquarantined 
area. Thereafter, the interstate movement of any regulated article from 
an area temporarily designated as a quarantined area is subject to this 
subpart. As soon as practicable, this area either will be added to the 
list of designated quarantined areas in paragraph (c) of this section, 
or the Administrator will terminate the designation. The owner or person 
in possession of, or, in the case of publicly owned land, the person 
responsible for the management of, an area for which the designation is

Sec. 301.51-4  Conditions governing the interstate movement of regulated 
articles from quarantined areas.

    (a) Any regulated article may be moved interstate from a quarantined 
area only if moved under the following conditions:
    (1) With a certificate or limited permit issued and attached in 
accordance with Sec. Sec. 301.51-5 and 301.51-8;
    (2) Without a certificate or limited permit if:
    (i) The regulated article is moved by the United States Department 
of Agriculture for experimental or scientific purposes; or
    (ii) The regulated article originates outside the quarantined area 
and is moved interstate through the quarantined area under the following 
conditions:
    (A) The points of origin and destination are indicated on a waybill 
accompanying the regulated article; and
    (B) The regulated article is moved through the quarantined area 
without stopping, or has been stored, packed, or handled at locations 
approved by an inspector as not posing a risk of infestation by Asian 
longhorned beetle; and
    (C) The article has not been combined or commingled with other 
articles so as to lose its individual identity.
    (b) When an inspector has probable cause to believe a person or 
means of conveyance is moving a regulated article interstate, the 
inspector is authorized to stop the person or means of conveyance to 
determine whether a regulated article is present and to inspect the 
regulated article. Articles found to be infected by an inspector, and 
articles not in compliance with the regulations in this subpart, may be 
seized,

[[Page 44]]

quarantined, treated, subjected to other remedial measures, destroyed, 
or otherwise disposed of.



Sec. 301.51-5  Issuance and cancellation of certificates and limited 
permits.

    (a) An inspector \1\ or person operating under a compliance 
agreement will issue a certificate for the interstate movement of a 
regulated article if he or she determines that the regulated article:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Inspectors are assigned to local offices of APHIS, which are 
listed in local telephone directories. Information concerning such local 
offices may also be obtained from the Animal and Plant Health Inspection 
Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine, Domestic and Emergency 
Operations, 4700 River Road Unit 134, Riverdale, Maryland 20737-1236.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1)(i) Is apparently free of Asian longhorned beetle in any stage of 
development, based on inspection of the regulated article; or
    (ii) Has been grown, produced, manufactured, stored, or handled in 
such a manner that, in the judgment of the inspector, the regulated 
article does not present a risk of spreading Asian longhorned beetle; 
and
    (2) Is to be moved in compliance with any additional conditions 
deemed necessary under section 414 of the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 
7714) \2\ to prevent the artificial spread of the Asian longhorned 
beetle; and
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ An inspector may hold, seize, quarantine, treat, apply other 
remedial measures to, destory, or otherwise dispose of plants, plant 
pests, or other articles in accordance with sections 414, 421, and 434

regulated article:
    (1) Is to be moved interstate to a specified destination for 
specific processing, handling, or utilization (the destination and other 
conditions to be listed on the limited permit), and this interstate 
movement will not result in the spread of Asian longhorned beetle 
because Asian longhorned beetle will be destroyed by the specific 
processing, handling, or utilization; and
    (2) It is to be moved in compliance with any additional conditions 
that the Administrator may impose under section 414 of the Plant 
Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) in order to prevent the spread of the

    (3) Is eligible for unrestricted movement under all other Federal 
domestic plant quarantines and regulations applicable to the regulated 
article.
    (c) An inspector shall issue blank certificates and limited permits 
to a person operating under a compliance agreement in accordance with 
Sec. 301.51-6 or authorize reproduction of the certificates or limited 
permits on shipping containers, or both, as requested by the person 
operating under the compliance agreement. These certificates and limited 
permits may then be completed and used, as needed, for the interstate 
movement of regulated articles that have met all of the requirements of 
paragraph (a) or (b), respectively, of this section.
    (d) Any certificate or limited permit may be canceled orally or in 
writing by an inspector whenever the inspector determines that the 
holder of the certificate or limited permit has not complied with this 
subpart or any conditions imposed under this subpart. If the 
cancellation is oral, the cancellation will become effective 
immediately, and the cancellation and the reasons for the cancellation 
will be confirmed in writing as soon as circumstances permit. Any person 
whose certificate or limited permit has been cancelled may appeal the 
decision in writing to the Administrator within 10 days after receiving 
the written cancellation notice. The appeal must state all of the facts 
and reasons that the person wants the Administrator to consider in 
deciding the appeal. A hearing may be held to resolve a conflict as to 
any material fact. Rules of practice for the hearing will be adopted by 
the Administrator. As soon as practicable, the Administrator will grant 
or deny the appeal, in writing, stating the reasons for the decision.

Sec. 301.53-4  Conditions governing the interstate movement of regulated 
articles from quarantined areas.

    Regulated articles may be moved interstate from a quarantined area 
only if moved under the following conditions:
    (a) With a certificate or limited permit issued and attached in 
accordance with Sec. Sec. 301.53-5 and 301.53-8;
    (b) Without a certificate or limited permit if:
    (1) The regulated article is moved by the United States Department 
of Agriculture for experimental or scientific purposes; or
    (2) The regulated article originates outside the quarantined area 
and is moved interstate through the quarantined area under the following 
conditions:
    (i) The points of origin and destination are indicated on a waybill 
accompanying the regulated article; and
    (ii) The regulated article, if moved through the quarantined area 
during the period of May 1 through August 31 or when the ambient air 
temperature is 40 [deg]F or higher, is moved in an enclosed vehicle or 
is completely covered to prevent access by the EAB; and
    (iii) The regulated article is moved directly through the 
quarantined area without stopping (except for refueling or for traffic 
conditions, such as traffic lights or stop signs), or has been stored, 
packed, or handled at locations approved by an inspector as not posing

[[Page 55]]

a risk of infestation by emerald ash borer; and
    (iv) The article has not been combined or commingled with other 
articles so as to lose its individual identity.



Sec. 301.53-5  Issuance and cancellation of certificates and limited 
permits.

    (a) An inspector \1\ or person operating under a compliance 
agreement will issue a certificate for the interstate movement of a 
regulated article if he or she determines that the regulated article:
    (1)(i) Is apparently free of EAB, based on inspection; or the 
article or
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Inspectors are assigned to local offices of APHIS, which are 
listed in the local telephone directories. Information concerning such 
local offices may also be obtained from the Animal and Plant Health 
Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine, Domestic and 
Emergency Operations, 4700 River Road Unit 134, Riverdale, Maryland 
20737-1236.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (ii) Has been grown, produced, manufactured, stored, or handled in a 
manner that, in the judgment of the inspector, prevents the regulated 
article from presenting a risk of spreading EAB; and
    (2) Is to be moved in compliance with any additional emergency 
conditions that the Administrator may impose under section 414 of the 
Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) \2\ in order to prevent the 
artificial spread of emerald ash borer; and
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ An inspector may hold, seize, quarantine, treat, apply other 
remedial measures to, destroy, or otherwise dispose of plants, plant 
pests, or other articles in accordance with sections 414, 421, and 423

    (3) Is eligible for unrestricted movement under all other Federal 
domestic plant quarantines and regulations applicable to the regulated 
articles.
    (b) An inspector or a person operating under a compliance agreement 
will issue a limited permit for the interstate movement of a regulated 
article not eligible for a certificate if he or she determines that the 
regulated article:
    (1) Is to be moved interstate to a specified destination for 
specific processing, handling, or utilization (the destination and other 
conditions to be listed on the limited permit), and this interstate 
movement will not result in the spread of emerald ash borer because 
emerald ash borer will be destroyed by the specific processing, 
handling, or utilization; and
    (2) Is to be moved in compliance with any additional emergency 
conditions that the Administrator may impose under section 414 of the 
Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) in order to prevent the spread of 
emerald ash borer; and
    (3) Is eligible for unrestricted movement under all other Federal 
domestic plant quarantines and regulations applicable to the regulated 
article.
    (c) An inspector shall issue blank certificates and limited permits 
to a person operating under a compliance agreement in accordance with 
Sec. 301.53-6 or authorize reproduction of the certificates or limited 
permits on shipping containers, or both, as requested by the person 
operating under the compliance agreement. These certificates and limited 
permits may then be completed and used, as needed, for the interstate 
movement of regulated articles that have met all of the requirements of 
paragraph (a) or (b), respectively, of this section.
    (d) Any certificate or limited permit may be canceled orally or in 
writing by an inspector whenever the inspector determines that the 
holder of the certificate or limited permit has not complied with this 
subpart or any conditions imposed under this subpart. If the 
cancellation is oral, the cancellation will become effective 
immediately, and the cancellation and the reasons for the cancellation

Sec. 301.64-5  Issuance and cancellation of certificates and limited 
permits.

    (a) A certificate shall be issued by an inspector for the movement 
of a regulated article if such inspector:
    (1)(i) Determines that it has been treated under the direction of an 
inspector \4\ in accordance with Sec. 301.64-10; or
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Treatments shall be monitored by inspectors in order to assure 
compliance with the requirements in this subpart.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (ii) Determines based on inspection of the premises of origin that 
the premises are free from the Mexican fruit fly and the article has not 
been exposed to Mexican fruit fly; or
    (iii) Determines based on inspection of the article that it is free 
from Mexican fruit fly; and
    (2) Determines that it is to be moved in compliance with any 
additional conditions deemed necessary under section 414 of the Plant 
Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) to prevent the spread of the Mexican 
fruit fly; \5\ and
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ An inspector may hold, seize, quarantine, treat, apply other 
remedial measures to, destroy, or otherwise dispose of plants, plant 
pests, or other articles in accordance with sections 414, 421, and 434 
of the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714, 7731, and 7754).

    (1) Determines, in consultation with the Deputy Administrator, that 
it is to be moved to a specified destination for specified handling, 
utilization, processing, or for treatment in accordance with Sec. 
301.64-10 (such destination and other conditions to be specified on the 
limited permit), when, upon evaluation of all of the circumstances 
involved in each case, it is determined that such movement will not 
result in the spread of the Mexican fruit fly because life stages of the 
pest will be destroyed by such specified handling, utilization, 
processing, or treatment;
    (2) Determines that it is to be moved in compliance with any 
additional conditions deemed necessary under section 414 of the Plant 
Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) to prevent the spread of the Mexican 
fruit fly; \5\ and
    (3) Determines that it is eligible for such movement under all other 
Federal domestic plant quarantines and regulations applicable to such 
article.
    (c) Certificates and limited permits for use for movement of 
regulated articles may be issued by an inspector or person engaged in 
the business of growing, handling, or moving regulated articles provided 
such person is operating under a compliance agreement. Any such person 
may execute and issue a certificate for the interstate movement of a 
regulated article if such person has treated such regulated article to 
destroy infestation in accordance with the provisions in Sec. 301.64-10 
and the inspector has made the determination that such article is 
otherwise eligible for a certificate in accordance with paragraph (a) of 
this section; or if the inspector has made the determination that such 
article is eligible for a certificate in accordance with paragraph (a)

tangerine. Cold treatment in accordance with part 305 of this chapter.
    (b) Soil within the dripline of plants that are producing or that 
have produced fruits listed in Sec. 301.64-2(a). Remove host fruits 
from host plants prior to treatment. Using ground equipment, drench the 
soil under the host plants with 5 lb a.i. diazinon per acre (0.12 lb or 
2 oz avdp per 1,000 ft \2\) mixed with 130 gal of water per acre (3 gal 
per 1,000 ft \2\). Apply at 14- to 16-day intervals as needed. Repeat 
applications if infestations become established. In addition

[[Page 62]]

to the above, follow all label directions for diazinon.
    (c) Premises. A field, grove, or area that is located within the 
quarantined area but outside the infested core area, and that produces 
regulated articles, must receive regular treatments with either 
malathion or spinosad bait spray. These treatments must take place at 6-
to 10-day intervals, starting a sufficient time before harvest (but not 
less than 30 days before harvest) to allow for completion of egg and 
larvae development of the Mexican fruit fly. Determination of the time 
period must be based on the day degrees model for Mexican fruit fly. 
Once treatment has begun, it must continue through the harvest period. 
The malathion bait spray treatment must be applied by aircraft or ground 
equipment at a rate of 2.4 oz of technical grade malathion and 9.6 oz of 
protein hydrolysate per acre. The spinosad bait spray treatment must be 
applied by aircraft or ground equipment at a rate of 0.01 oz of a USDA-
approved spinosad formulation and 48 oz of protein hydrolysate per acre. 
For ground applications, the mixture may be diluted with water to 
improve coverage.
    (d) Grapefruit and oranges. Methyl bromide in accordance with part 
305 of this chapter.
    (e) Grapefruit, oranges, and tangerines. High-temperature forced air 
in accordance with part 305 of this chapter.

    (g) Approved irradiation treatment. Irradiation, carried out in 
accordance with the provisions of this paragraph, is approved as a 
treatment for any fruit listed as a regulated article in Sec. 301.64-
2(a).
    (1) Approved facility. The irradiation treatment facility and 
treatment protocol must be approved by the Animal and Plant Health 
Inspection Service. In order to be approved, a facility must:
    (i) Be capable of administering a minimum absorbed ionizing 
radiation dose of 150 Gray (15 krad) to the fruit; \8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The maximum absorbed ionizing radiation dose and the irradiation 
of food are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration under 21 CFR 
part 179.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (ii) Be constructed so as to provide physically separate locations 
for treated and untreated fruit, except that fruit traveling by conveyor 
directly into the irradiation chamber may pass through an area that 
would otherwise be separated. The locations must be separated by a 
permanent physical barrier such as a wall or chain link fence 6 or more 
feet high to prevent transfer of cartons;
    (iii) Complete a compliance agreement with the Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service as provided in Sec. 301.64-6; and
    (iv) Be certified by Plant Protection and Quarantine for initial use 
and annually for subsequent use. Recertification is required in the 
event that an increase or decrease in radioisotope or a major 
modification to equipment that affects the delivered dose. 
Recertification may be required in cases where a significant variance in 
dose delivery is indicated.
    (2) Treatment monitoring. Treatment must be carried out under the 
monitoring of an inspector. This monitoring must include inspection of 
treatment records and unannounced inspection visits to the facility by 
an inspector. Facilities that carry out continual irradiation operations 
must notify an inspector at least 24 hours before the date of 
operations. Facilities that carry out periodic irradiation operations 
must notify an inspector of scheduled operations at least 24 hours 
before scheduled operations.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ Inspectors are assigned to local offices of the Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service, which are listed in telephone directories.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (3) Packaging. Fruits and vegetables that are treated within a 
quarantined area must be packaged in the following manner:
    (i) The cartons must have no openings that will allow the entry of 
fruit flies and must be sealed with seals that will visually indicate if 
the cartons

[[Page 63]]

have been opened. They may be constructed of any material that prevents 
the entry of fruit flies and prevents oviposition by fruit flies into 
the fruit in the carton.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ If there is a question as to the adequacy of a carton, send a 
request for approval of the carton, together with a sample carton, to 
the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and 
Quarantine, Center for Plant Health Science and Technology, 1017 Main 
Campus Drive, suite 2500, Raleigh, NC 27606.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (ii) The pallet-load of cartons must be wrapped before it leaves the 
irradiation facility in one of the following ways:
    (A) With polyethylene sheet wrap;
    (B) With net wrapping; or
    (C) With strapping so that each carton on an outside row of the 
pallet load is constrained by a metal or plastic strap.
    (iii) Packaging must be labeled with treatment lot numbers, packing 
and treatment facility identification and location, and dates of packing 
and treatment.
    (4) Dosage. The fruits and vegetables must receive a minimum 
absorbed ionizing radiation dose of 150 Gray (15 krad).\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See footnote 8.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (5) Dosimetry systems. (i) Dosimetry mapping must indicate the dose 
needed to ensure the fruit will receive the minimum dose prescribed.
    (ii) Absorbed dose must be measured using an accurate dosimetry 
system that ensures that the absorbed dose meets or exceeds 150 Gray (15 
krad).
    (iii) When designing the facility's dosimetry system and procedures 
for its operation, the facility operator must address guidance and 
principles from American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) 
standards.\12\

    \12\ Designation ISO/ASTM 51261-2002(E), ``Standard Guide for 
Selection and Calibration of Dosimetry Systems for Radiation 
Processing,'' American Society for Testing and Materials, Annual Book of 
ASTM Standards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (6) Records. Records or invoices for each treated lot must be made 
available for inspection by an inspector during normal business hours (8 
a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays). An 
irradiation processor must maintain records as specified in this section 
for a period of time that exceeds the shelf life of the irradiated food 
product by 1 year, and must make these records available for inspection 
by an inspector. These records must include the lot identification, 
scheduled process, evidence of compliance with the scheduled process, 
ionizing energy source, source calibration, dosimetry, dose distribution 
in the product, and the date of irradiation.
    (7) Request for approval and inspection of facility. Persons 
requesting approval of an irradiation treatment facility and treatment 
protocol must submit the request for approval in writing to the Animal 
and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine, 
Center for Plant Health Science and Technology, 1017 Main Campus Drive, 
suite 2500, Raleigh, NC 27606. Before the Administrator determines 
whether an irradiation facility is eligible for approval, an inspector 
will make a personal inspection of the facility to determine whether it 
complies with the standards of paragraph (g)(1) of this section.
    (8) Denial and withdrawal of approval. (i) The Administrator will 
withdraw the approval of any irradiation treatment facility when the 
irradiation processor requests in writing the withdrawal of approval.
    (ii) The Administrator will deny or withdraw approval of an 
irradiation treatment facility when any provision of this section is not 
met. Before withdrawing or denying approval, the Administrator will 
inform the irradiation processor in writing of the reasons for the 
proposed action and provide the irradiation processor with an 
opportunity to respond. The Administrator will give the irradiation 
processor an opportunity for a hearing regarding any dispute of a 
material fact, in accordance with rules of practice that will be adopted 
for the proceeding. However, the Administrator will suspend approval 
pending final determination in the proceeding, if he or she determines 
that suspension is necessary to prevent the spread of any dangerous 
insect infestation. The suspension will be effective upon oral or 
written notification, whichever is earlier, to the irradiation 
processor. In the event of oral notification, written confirmation

[[Page 64]]

will be given to the irradiation processor within 10 days of the oral 
notification. The suspension will continue in effect pending completion 
of the proceeding and any judicial review of the proceeding.
    (9) Department not responsible for damage. This treatment is 
approved to assure quarantine security against Mexican fruit fly. From 
the literature available, the fruits authorized for treatment under this 
section are believed tolerant to the treatment; however, the facility 
operator and shipper are responsible for determination of tolerance. The 
Department of Agriculture and its inspectors assume no responsibility 
for any loss or damage resulting from any treatment prescribed or 
supervised. Additionally, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is 
responsible for ensuring that irradiation facilities are constructed and 
operated in a safe manner. Further, the Food and Drug Administration is 
responsible for ensuring that irradiated foods are safe and wholesome 
for human consumption.

be compensated according to the following table on a per-acre basis at a 
rate based on the age of the trees destroyed. If the trees were not 
destroyed by the date specified on the emergency action notification, 
the compensation payment will be reduced by 10 percent and by any tree 
removal costs incurred by the State or the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture (USDA). The maximum USDA compensation rate is 85 percent of 
the loss in value, adjusted for any State-provided compensation to 
ensure total compensation from all sources does not exceed 100 percent 
of the loss in value.

    (2) Owners of fruit tree nurseries. Owners of fruit tree nurseries 
who meet the eligibility requirements of paragraph (a)(2) of this 
section will be compensated for up to 85 percent of the net revenues 
lost from their first and second year crops as the result of the 
issuance of an emergency action notification which will be calculated as 
follows:
    (i) First year crop. The net revenue loss for trees that were 
expected to be sold in the year during which the emergency action 
notification was issued (i.e., the first year crop) will be calculated 
as (expected number of trees to be sold) x (average price per tree) - 
(digging, grading, and storage costs) = net revenue lost for first year 
crop, where:
    (A) The expected number of trees to be sold equals the number of 
trees in the field minus 2 percent culls minus 3 percent unsold trees; 
and
    (B) The average price per tree is $4.65; and
    (C) Digging, grading and storage costs are $0.10 per tree.
    (ii) Second year crop. The net revenue loss for trees that would be 
expected to be sold in the year following the year during which the 
emergency action notification was issued (i.e., the second year crop) 
will be calculated as (expected number of trees to be sold) x (average 
price per tree) = net revenue lost for second year crop, where:
    (A) The expected number of trees to be sold equals the number of 
budded trees in the field minus 20 percent death loss minus 2 percent 
culls; and
    (B) The average price per tree is $4.65 for plum and apricot trees 
and $3.30 for peach and nectarine trees.
    (c) How to apply. The form necessary to submit a claim for 
compensation may be obtained from the Plum Pox Cooperative Eradication 
Program, USDA, APHIS, PPQ, 401 East Louther Street, Suite 102, Carlisle, 
PA 17013-2625. The completed claim form must be sent to the same 
address. Claims for trees or nursery stock destroyed on or before the 
effective date of this rule must be received within 60 days after the 
effective date of this rule. Claims for trees or nursery stock destroyed 
after the effective date of this rule must be received within 60 days 
after the destruction of the trees or nursery stock. Claims must be 
submitted as follows:
    (1) Claims by owners of stone fruit orchards who are direct 
marketers. The completed application must be accompanied by:
    (i) A copy of the emergency action notification ordering the 
destruction of the trees and its accompanying inventory that describes 
the acreage and ages of trees removed;
    (ii) Documentation verifying that the destruction of trees has been 
completed and the date of that destruction; and
    (iii) Records documenting that the grower meets the eligibility 
requirements of paragraph (a)(1)(i) of this section.
    (2) Claims by owners of commercial stone fruit orchards who are not 
direct marketers. The completed application must be accompanied by a

the trees, its accompanying inventory that describes the acreage and 
ages of trees removed, and documentation verifying that the destruction 
of trees has been completed and the date of that destruction.
    (3) Claims by owners of fruit tree nurseries. The completed 
application must be accompanied by a copy of the order prohibiting the 
sale or movement of the nursery stock, its accompanying inventory that 
describes the total number of trees and the age and variety, and 
documentation describing the final disposition of the nursery stock.
    (d) Replanting. Trees of susceptible Prunus species (i.e., Prunus 
species identified as regulated articles) may not be replanted on 
premises within a contiguous quarantined area until 3

[[Page 69]]

years from the date the last trees within that area were destroyed 
because of plum pox pursuant to an emergency action notification issued 
by APHIS.

treatment for any berry, fruit, nut, or vegetable listed as a regulated 
article in Sec. 301.78-2(a) of this subpart.
    (1) Approved facility. The irradiation treatment facility and 
treatment protocol must be approved by the Animal and Plant Health 
Inspection Service. In order to be approved, a facility must:
    (i) Be capable of administering a minimum absorbed ionizing 
radiation dose of 225 Gray (22.5 krad) to the fruits and vegetables; \8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The maximum absorbed ionizing radiation dose and the irradiation 
of food is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration under 21 CFR 
part 179.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (ii) Be constructed so as to provide physically separate locations 
for treated and untreated fruits and vegetables, except that fruits and 
vegetables traveling by conveyor directly into the irradiation chamber 
may pass through an area that would otherwise be separated. The 
locations must be separated by a permanent physical barrier such as a 
wall or chain link fence 6 or more feet high to prevent transfer of 
cartons;
    (iii) Complete a compliance agreement with the Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service as provided in Sec. 301.78-6 of this subpart; 
and

and annually for subsequent use. Recertification is required in the 
event that an increase or decrease in radioisotope or a major 
modification to equipment that affects the delivered dose. 
Recertification may be required in cases where a significant variance in 
dose delivery is indicated.
    (2) Treatment monitoring. Treatment must be carried out under the 
monitoring of an inspector. This monitoring must include inspection of 
treatment records and unannounced inspection visits to the facility by 
an inspector. Facilities that carry out continual irradiation operations 
must notify an inspector at least 24 hours before the date of 
operations. Facilities that carry out periodic irradiation operations 
must notify an inspector of scheduled operations at least 24 hours 
before scheduled operations.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ Inspectors are assigned to local offices of the Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service, which are listed in telephone directories.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (3) Packaging. Fruits and vegetables that are treated within a 
quarantined area must be packaged in the following manner:
    (i) The cartons must have no openings that will allow the entry of 
fruit flies and must be sealed with seals that will visually indicate if 
the cartons have been opened. They may be constructed of any material 
that prevents the entry of fruit flies and prevents oviposition by fruit 
flies into the fruit in the carton.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ If there is a question as to the adequacy of a carton, send a 
request for approval of the carton, together with a sample carton, to 
the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and 
Quarantine, Center for Plant Health Science and Technology, 1017 Main 
Campus Drive, suite 2500, Raleigh, NC 27606.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (ii) The pallet-load of cartons must be wrapped before it leaves the 
irradiation facility in one of the following ways:
    (A) With polyethylene sheet wrap;
    (B) With net wrapping; or
    (C) With strapping so that each carton on an outside row of the 
pallet load is constrained by a metal or plastic strap.
    (iii) Packaging must be labeled with treatment lot numbers, packing 
and treatment facility identification and location, and dates of packing 
and treatment.
    (4) Dosage. The fruits and vegetables must receive a minimum 
absorbed ionizing radiation dose of 225 Gray (22.5 krad).11
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See footnote 8.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

[[Page 89]]

    (5) Dosimetry systems. (i) Dosimetry must demonstrate that the 
absorbed dose, including areas of minimum and maximum dose, is mapped, 
controlled, and recorded.
    (ii) Absorbed dose must be measured using a dosimetry system that 
can accurately measure an adsorbed dose of 225 Gray (22.5 krad).
    (iii) The utilization of the dosimetry system, including its 
calibration and the number and placement of dosimeters used, must be in 
accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) 
standards.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ Designation E 1261, ``Standard Guide for Selection and 
Calibration of Dosimetry Systems for Radiation Processing,'' American 
Society for Testing and Materials, Annual Book of ASTM Standards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (6) Records. Records or invoices for each treated lot must be made 
available for inspection by an inspector during normal business hours (8 
a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays). An 
irradiation processor must maintain records as specified in this section 
for a period of time that exceeds the shelf life of the irradiated food 
product by 1 year, and must make these records available for inspection 
by an inspector. These records must include the lot identification, 
scheduled process, evidence of compliance with the scheduled process, 
ionizing energy source, source calibration, dosimetry, dose distribution 
in the product, and the date of irradiation.
    (7) Request for approval and inspection of facility. Persons 
requesting approval of an irradiation treatment facility and treatment 
protocol must submit the request for approval in writing to the Animal 
and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine, 
Center for Plant Health Science and Technology, 1017 Main Campus Drive, 
suite 2500, Raleigh, NC 27606. Before the Administrator determines 
whether an irradiation facility is eligible for approval, an inspector 
will make a personal inspection of the facility to determine whether it 
complies with the standards of paragraph (c)(1) of this section.
    (8) Denial and withdrawal of approval. (i) The Administrator will 
withdraw the approval of any irradiation treatment facility when the 
irradiation processor requests in writing the withdrawal of approval.
    (ii) The Administrator will deny or withdraw approval of an 
irradiation treatment facility when any provision of this section is not 
met. Before withdrawing or denying approval, the Administrator will 
inform the irradiation processor in writing of the reasons for the 
proposed action and provide the irradiation processor with an 
opportunity to respond. The Administrator will give the irradiation 
processor an opportunity for a hearing regarding any dispute of a 
material fact, in accordance with rules of practice that will be adopted 
for the proceeding. However, the Administrator will suspend approval 
pending final determination in the proceeding, if he or she determines 
that suspension is necessary to prevent the spread of any dangerous 
insect infestation. The suspension will be effective upon oral or 
written notification, whichever is earlier, to the irradiation 
processor. In the event of oral notification, written confirmation will 
be given to the irradiation processor within 10 days of the oral 
notification. The suspension will continue in effect pending completion 
of the proceeding and any judicial review of the proceeding.
    (9) Department not responsible for damage. This treatment is 
approved to assure quarantine security against Mediterranean fruit fly. 
From the literature available, the fruits and vegetables authorized for 
treatment under this section are believed tolerant to the treatment; 
however, the facility operator and shipper are responsible for 
determination of tolerance. The Department of Agriculture and its 
inspectors assume no responsibility for any loss or damage resulting 
from any treatment prescribed or supervised. Additionally, the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission is responsible for ensuring that irradiation 
facilities are constructed and operated in a safe manner. Further, the 
Food and Drug Administration is responsible for ensuring that irradiated 
foods are safe and wholesome for human consumption.
    (d) Premises. A field, grove, or area that is located within the 
quarantined area but outside the infested core area, and that produces 
regulated articles,

[[Page 90]]

must receive regular treatments with malathion bait spray. These 
treatments must take place at 6 to 10-day intervals, starting a 
sufficient time before harvest (but not less than 30 days before 
harvest) to allow for completion of egg and larvae development of the 
Mediterranean fruit fly. Determination of the time period must be based 
on day degrees. Once treatment has begun, it must continue through the 
harvest period. The malathion bait spray treatment must be applied at a 
rate of 1.2 fluid ounces of technical grade malathion (1.4 ounces by 
weight) and 10.8 fluid ounces of protein hydrolysate (13.2 ounces by 
weight) per acre, for a total of 12 fluid ounces per acre.
    (e) Soil. Soil within the drip area of plants that are producing or 
have produced the berries, fruits, nuts, and vegetables listed in Sec. 
301.78-2(a) of this subpart: Apply diazinon at the rate of 5 pounds 
actual ingredient per acre to the soil within the drip area with 
sufficient water to wet the soil to a depth of at least \1/2\ inch. Both 
immersion and pour-on treatment procedures are also acceptable.

the opinion that:
    (1) The State has adopted and is enforcing a quarantine or 
regulation which imposes restrictions on the intrastate movement of the 
regulated articles which are substantially the same as those which are 
imposed with respect to the interstate movement of such articles under 
this subpart; and
    (2) The designation of less than the entire State as a regulated 
area will otherwise be adequate to prevent the interstate spread of 
witchweed.
    (b) Temporary designation of regulated areas and suppressive or 
generally infested areas. The Deputy Administrator or an authorized 
inspector may temporarily designate any other premises in a quarantined 
State as a regulated area and may designate the regulated area or 
portions thereof as a suppressive or generally infested area, in 
accordance with the criteria specified in paragraph (a) of this section 
for designating such area, by serving written notice thereof on the 
owner or person in possession of such premises, and thereafter the 
interstate movement of regulated articles from such premises by any 
person having notice of the designation shall be subject to the 
applicable provisions of this subpart. As soon as practicable, such 
premises shall be added to the list in Sec. 301.80-2a if a basis then 
exists for their designation.
    (c) Termination of designation as a regulated area and a suppressive 
or generally infested area. The Deputy Administrator shall terminate the 
designation provided for under paragraph (a) of this section of any area 
designated as a regulated area or a suppressive or a generally infested 
area when he determines that such designation is no longer required 
under the criteria specified in paragraph (a) of this section. The 
Deputy Administrator or an inspector shall terminate the designation 
provided for under paragraph (b) of this

[[Page 93]]

section of any premises designated as a regulated area or a suppressive 
or a generally infested area when he determines that such designation is 
no longer required under the criteria specified in paragraph (a) of this 
section, and notice thereof shall be given to the owner or person in 
possession of the premises.
    (d) Exemption of articles from certification, permit, or other 
requirements. The Deputy Administrator may, in a supplemental regulation 
designated as Sec. 301.80-2b, list regulated articles or movements of 
regulated articles which shall be exempt from the certification, permit, 
or other requirements of this subpart under such conditions as he may 
prescribe, if he finds that facts exist as to the pest risk involved in 
the movement of such regulated articles which make it safe to so relieve 
such requirements.

Sec. 301.80-4  Issuance and cancellation of certificates and permits.

    (a) Certificates may be issued for any regulated articles (except 
soil samples for processing, testing, or analysis) by an inspector if he 
determines that they are eligible for certification for movement to any 
destination under all Federal domestic plant quarantines applicable to 
such articles and:
    (1) Have originated in noninfested premises in a regulated area and 
have not been exposed to infestation while within the regulated areas; 
or
    (2) Have been treated to destroy infestation in accordance with the 
treatment manual; or
    (3) Have been grown, produced, manufactured, stored, or handled in 
such a manner that no infestation would be transmitted thereby.
    (b) Limited permits may be issued by an inspector to allow 
interstate movement of regulated articles (except soil samples for 
processing, testing, or analysis) not eligible for certification under 
this subpart, to specified destinations for limited handling, 
utilization, or processing, or for treatment in accordance with the 
treatment manual, when upon evaluation of the circumstances involved in 
each specific case he determines that such movement will not result in 
the spread of witchweed and requirements of other applicable Federal 
domestic plant quarantines have been met.
    (c) Restricted destination permits may be issued by an inspector to 
allow the interstate movement (for other than scientific purposes) of 
regulated articles (except soil samples for processing, testing, or 
analysis) to any destination permitted under all applicable Federal 
domestic plant quarantines if such articles are not eligible for 
certification under all such quarantines but would otherwise qualify for 
certification under this subpart.
    (d) Scientific permits to allow the interstate movement of regulated 
articles, and certificates or permits to allow the movement of soil 
samples for processing, testing, or analysis in emergency situations, 
may be issued by the Deputy Administrator under such conditions as may 
be prescribed in each specific case by the Deputy Administrator to 
prevent the spread of witchweed.
    (e) Certificate, limited permit, and restricted destination permit 
forms may be issued by an inspector to any person for use by the latter 
for subsequent shipments of regulated articles (except soil samples for 
processing, testing, or analysis) provided such person is operating 
under a compliance agreement; and any such person may be authorized by 
an inspector to reproduce such forms on shipping containers or 
otherwise. Any such person may execute and issue the certificate forms, 
or reproductions of such forms, for the interstate movement of regulated 
articles from the premises of such person identified in the compliance 
agreement if such person has treated such regulated articles to destroy 
infestation in accordance with the treatment manual, and if such 
regulated articles are eligible for certification for movement to any 
destination under all Federal domestic plant quarantines applicable to 
such articles. Any such person may execute and issue the limited permit 
forms, or reproductions of such forms, for interstate movement of 
regulated articles to specified destinations when the inspector has made 
the determinations specified in paragraph (b) of this section. Any such 
person may execute and issue the restricted destination permit forms, or 
reproductions of such forms, for the interstate movement of regulated 
articles not eligible for certification under all Federal domestic plant 
quarantines applicable to such articles, under the conditions specified 
in paragraph (c) of this section.
    (f) Any certificate or permit which has been issued or authorized 
may be withdrawn by the inspector or the Deputy Administrator if he 
determines that the holder thereof has not complied with any condition 
for the use of such document imposed by this subpart. As soon as 
possible after such withdrawal, the holder of the certificate or permit 
shall be notified in writing by the Deputy Administrator or an

[[Page 97]]

inspector of the reason therefor and afforded reasonable opportunity to 
present his views thereon, and if there is a conflict as to any material 
fact, a hearing shall be held to resolve such conflict.

facilitate the movement of such articles under this subpart. Compliance 
agreement forms may be obtained from the Deputy Administrator or an 
inspector.
    (b) Any compliance agreement may be canceled by the inspector who is 
supervising its enforcement whenever he finds that such other party has 
failed to comply with the conditions of the agreement. As soon as 
possible after such cancellation, such party shall be notified in 
writing by the Deputy Administrator or an inspector of the reason 
therefor and afforded reasonable opportunity to present views thereon, 
and if there is a conflict as to any material fact, a hearing shall be 
held to resolve such conflict.

Sec. 301.81-3  Quarantined areas.

    (a) The Administrator will quarantine each State or each portion of 
a State that is infested.
    (b) Less than an entire State will be listed as a quarantined area 
only if the Administrator determines that:
    (1) The State has adopted and is enforcing restrictions on the 
intrastate movement of the regulated articles listed in Sec. 301.81-2 
that are equivalent to the interstate movement restrictions imposed by 
this subpart; and
    (2) Designating less than the entire State as a quarantined area 
will prevent the spread of the imported fire ant.
    (c) The Administrator may include uninfested acreage within a 
quarantined area due to its proximity to an infestation or 
inseparability from the infested locality for quarantine purposes, as 
determined by:
    (1) Projections of spread of imported fire ant around the periphery 
of the infestation, as determined by previous years' surveys;
    (2) Availability of natural habitats and host materials, within the 
uninfested acreage, suitable for establishment and survival of imported 
fire ant populations; and
    (3) Necessity of including uninfested acreage within the quarantined 
area in order to establish readily identifiable boundaries.
    (d) The Administrator or an inspector may temporarily designate any 
nonquarantined area as a quarantined area in accordance with the 
criteria specified in paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) of this section. The 
Administrator will give written notice of this designation to the owner 
or person in possession of the nonquarantined area, or, in the case of 
publicly owned land, to the person responsible for the management of the 
nonquarantined area; thereafter, the interstate movement of any 
regulated article from an area temporarily designated as a quarantined 
area is subject to this subpart. As soon as practicable, this area 
either will be added to the list of designated quarantined areas in 
paragraph (e) of this section, or the Administrator will terminate the 
designation. The owner or person in possession of, or, in the case of 
publicly owned land, the person responsible for the management of, an 
area for which the designation is terminated will be given written 
notice of the termination as soon as practicable.

                 Appendix to Subpart--Imported Fire Ant

                       III. Regulatory Procedures

    A. Instructions to Inspectors. Inspectors must know and follow 
instructions in the PPQ Treatment Manual, the pesticide label, and 
exemptions (Section 18 or 24 (c) of FIFRA) for the treatment or other 
procedures used to authorize the movement of regulated articles. These 
will serve as a basis for explaining such procedures to persons 
interested in moving articles affected by the quarantine. Inspectors 
shall furnish completed information to anyone interested in moving 
regulated articles.
    If there are questions concerning a particular treatment, contact 
your supervisor.
    B. Authorized Chemicals. The following chemicals are authorized for 
the treatment of regulated articles under the IFA quarantine:

                              Insecticides

Bifenthrin (Talstar [reg])
Chlorpyrifos (Dursban [reg])
Diazinon
Fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg])
Fipronil (Chipco [reg])
Hydramethylnon (AMDRO [reg])
Methoprene (Extinguish [reg])
Pyriproxyfen (Distance [reg])
Tefluthrin (FIREBAN [reg])

    C. Approved Treatments.

                     1. Equipment--Used Soil-Moving

    Methods: Used soil-moving equipment is eligible for movement when an 
inspector determines that one of the following procedures has been done:
    a. It has been brushed free of noncompacted soil;
    b. It has been washed free of noncompacted soil; or
    c. Noncompacted soil has been removed with air pressure equipment 
using compressors designed specifically for this purpose. Such 
compressors must provide free air delivery of no less than 30 cubic feet 
per minute at 200 pounds per square inch.
    Certification Period: As long as kept free of noncompacted soil.
    Limitations: Regardless of the type of cleaning equipment used, all 
debris and noncompacted soil must be removed unless it is steam-heated 
by a ``steam jenny'' to disinfest the articles. Used soil-moving 
equipment, such as bulldozers, dirt pans, motor graders, and draglines, 
are difficult to clean sufficiently to eliminate pest risk.
    Precaution: Steam may remove loose paint and usually is not 
recommended for use on equipment with conveyor belts and rubber parts.

                            2. Hay and Straw

    Baled hay and straw stored in direct contact with the ground is 
ineligible for movement.

                   3. Plants--Balled or in Containers

    a. Emulsifiable chlorpyrifos.
    Material: Emulsifiable chlorpyrifos--Immersion and drench treatments 
(post-harvest): any Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered 
formulation is acceptable.
    Dosage:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                      Amount of formulation to make 100
     Chlorpyrifos formulation           gallons of treating solution

    e. General requirements for emulsifiable chlorpyrifos, bifenthrin, 
tefluthrin, or fipronil.
    Conditions and Type of Soil: Any friable soil may be treated.

                           Method A--Immersion

                                Equipment

    1. A watertight container for mixing the treating solutions.
    2. Open-top, watertight container sufficiently large to accommodate 
the treating solution and plants.
    Procedure: Locate immersion tank in well-ventilated place. Do not 
remove burlap wrap or plastic containers with drain holes prior to 
immersion Immerse soil balls and containers, singly or in groups, so 
that soil is completely covered by solution. Plants must remain in 
solution until bubbling ceases. Plant balls should have space between 
them when grouped in trays, baskets, or other dipping containers. After 
removal from dip, plants may be set on drainboard until adequately 
drained.
    Thorough saturation of the plant balls or containers with the 
insecticide solution is essential.
    As treating progresses, freshly prepared treating mixture should be 
added to maintain liquid at immersion depth. Dispose of tank contents 8 
hours after mixing. Clean tank before recharging. Disposal must comply 
with State and local regulations.
    Precautions: Runoff of the solution from the treatment area should 
not be permitted. Excess solution (and used solution) must be disposed 
of in accordance with State and local regulations.

[[Page 111]]

                            Method B--Drench

                                Equipment

    1. A large-capacity bulk mixing tank, either pressurized or gravity-
flow for mixing and holding the insecticide solution.
    2. Properly equipped hoses and watering nozzles that can be attached 
to the mixing tank and used to thoroughly saturate the plant balls with 
the insecticide solution.

                                Procedure

    1. Plants Balled with Burlap--Apply the chlorpyrifos solution as a 
substitute for plain water to the plants during the routine watering 
activities. Do not remove burlap wrap from plants prior to treatment. 
Treat plants singly or in groups with the chlorpyrifos solution to the 
point of runoff on a twice daily schedule for 3 consectutive days.
    The above treatment should be carried out in a well-ventilated place 
normally used to maintain plants prior to shipment. The treatment will 
be enhanced by adding any agricultural wetting agent such as Ortho-77 
[reg], Tronic [reg], Tecowet [reg], 
etc., to the chlorpyrifos solution at the labeled rate (usually \1/2\ 
pint per 100 gallons of water).
    2. Containerized Plants--Apply the bifenthrin or chlorpyrifos 
solution to the point of saturation one time only. The volume of the 
treating solution must be at least \1/5\ (20%) of the volume of the 
container.
    Precautions: Thorough saturation of the plant balls or containers 
with the insecticide solution is essential. Runoff of the solution from 
the treatment area should not be permitted. Excess solution (and used 
solution) must be disposed of in accordance with State and local 
regulations.

                      Method C--Topical Application

    Apply bifenthrin according to the label instructions for topical 
application. The method may be used only with nursery stock in 3- and 4-
quart containers. Penetration of the pesticide in larger containers does 
not provide sufficient residual activity.
    Irrigate all treated containers with 1.5 inches of water following 
application.
    Precautions: Runoff of the solution from the treatment area should 
not be permitted. Excess solution (and used solution) must be disposed 
of in accordance with State and local regulations.
    Manufacture of the 10WP (wettable powder) formulation was 
discontinued in 1998; however, the EPA will allow this product to be 
utilized until supplies are exhausted.

              Method D--Granular Incorporation (Bifenthrin)

    Apply bifenthrin according to the label instructions for granular 
incorporation. Mix thoroughly to distribute product evenly throughout 
the soil or potting media. After potting, containers must be watered to 
the point of saturation.
    Precautions: Saturation of the soil or potting media with the 
granular bifenthrin is essential. Water that drains from the treatment 
area, which may contain bifenthrin, must be disposed of in accordance 
with State and local laws.

              Method E--Granular Incorporation (Tefluthrin)

    Apply tefluthrin according to the label directions for granular 
incorporation. Mix thoroughly to distribute the granular tefluthrin 
evenly throughout the soil or potting media. After potting, containers 
must be watered to the point of saturation.
    Precautions: Saturation of the soil or potting media with the 
tefluthrin is essential. Water that drains from the treatment area, 
which may contain tefluthrin, must be disposed of in accordance with 
State and local laws.

               Method F--Granular Incorporation (Fipronil)

    Apply fipronil according to the label instructions for granular 
incorporation. Mix thoroughly to distribute product evenly throughout 
the soil or potting media. After potting, containers must be watered to 
the point of saturation.
    Precautions: Saturation of the soil or potting media with the 
granular fipronil is essential. Water that drains from the treatment 
area, which may contain fipronil, must be disposed of in accordance with 
State and local laws.

      4. Imported-Fire-Ant-Free Nursery--Containerized Plants Only

    This detection, control, exclusion, and enforcement program is 
designed to keep nurseries free of the imported fire ant and provides a 
basis to certify containerized nursery stock for interstate movement.
    Participating regulated establishments must be operating under a 
compliance agreement. Such compliance agreements shall state the 
specific requirements that a shipper agrees to follow to move plants in 
accordance with the requirements of the program. Certificates and a 
nursery identification number may be issued to the nursery for use on 
shipments of regulated articles.

                                Detection

    A successful treatment program depends upon early detection of 
imported fire ant colonies. Nursery owners are required to survey 
visually their entire premises twice monthly for the presence of 
imported fire ants.
    Nurseries participating in this program will be inspected by Federal 
or State inspectors at least twice per year. More frequent

[[Page 112]]

inspections may be necessary depending upon imported fire ant 
infestation levels immediately surrounding the nursery, the thoroughness 
of nursery management in maintaining imported-fire-ant-free premises, 
and the number of previous detections of imported fire ants in or near 
containerized plants. Inspections by Federal and State inspectors should 
be more frequent just before and during the peak shipping season. Any 
nurseries determined during nursery inspections to have imported fire 
ant colonies must be immediately treated to the extent necessary to 
eliminate the colonies.

                                 Control

    Nursery plants that are shipped under this program must originate in 
a nursery free of imported fire ant. Nursery owners must implement a 
treatment program with registered bait and contact insecticides. The 
premises, including growing and holding areas, must be maintained free 
of the imported fire ant. As part of this treatment program, all exposed 
soil surfaces (including sod and mulched areas) on property where plants 
are grown, potted, stored, handled, loaded, unloaded, or sold must be 
treated with a broadcast application of hydramethylnon (AMDRO 
[reg]), fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg]), pyriproxyfen 
(Distance [reg]), or methoprene (Extinguish [reg]) 
baits at least once every six months. The first application is more 
effective when applied early in the spring. An early spring bait 
application provides control before alate queens are produced or have 
time to establish new colonies. Follow label directions for use.
    When properly used, baits are between 80 percent and 90 percent 
effective. Follow-up treatments with a contact insecticide must be 
applied to eliminate all remaining colonies. Mound drench treatments 
with a registered formulation of chlorpyrifos or diazinon are approved. 
Follow label directions for use.

                                Exclusion

Bifenthrin
    For plants grown on the premises: Treatment of potting media with 
granular, flowable, or wettable powder formulation of bifenthrin prior 
to planting is required. This treatment reduces the risk of infestation 
of containers by alate queens flying in from adjacent or nearby infested 
premises. The dosage rate for granular bifenthrin is variable and is 
determined by the certification period selected; for flowable bifenthrin 
it is 25 ppm; for wettable powder it is 25 ppm.
    Apply this treatment according to the label instructions.
    Mixing must be adequate to blend the required dosage of pesticide 
throughout the entire potting soil mixture.
    For plants received from outside sources: To prevent the spread into 
a nursery free of the imported fire ant by newly introduced, infested 
nursery plants, all plants must be:
    (a) Obtained from nurseries free of imported fire ant that are 
certified under a compliance agreement; or
    (b) Treated with bifenthrin drench upon delivery in accordance with 
this appendix (III.C.3.b), and within 180 days be either:
    (1) Repotted in treated potting soil media,
    (2) Retreated with bifenthrin drench, immersion, or topical 
application (III.C.3.b) at 180-day intervals, or
    (3) Shipped.
Tefluthrin
    For plants grown on the premises: Treatment of soil or potting media 
with granular, flowable, tefluthrin prior to planting is permitted as an 
alternative to treatment with granular or wettable powder formulation of 
bifenthrin. This treatment reduces the risk of infestation of containers 
by alate queens flying in from adjacent or nearby infested premises. The 
dosage rate is variable, determined by the selected certification 
period, for the granular tefluthrin.
    Apply this treatment according to the label directions.
    Mixing must be adequate to blend the required dosage of granular 
tefluthrin throughout the entire soil or potting media.
Fipronil
    For plants grown on the premises: Treatment of soil or potting media 
with granular fipronil prior to planting is permitted as an alternative 
to treatment with granular formulations of bifenthrin or tefluthrin. 
This treatment reduces the risk of infestation of containers by alate 
queens flying in from adjacent or nearby infested premises. The dosage 
rate is variable, determined by the selected certification period, for 
the granular fipronil.
    Apply this treatment according to the label directions.
    Mixing must be adequate to blend the required dosage of granular 
fipronil throughout the entire soil or potting media.

                               Enforcement

    The nursery owner shall maintain records of the nursery's surveys 
and treatments for the imported fire ant. These records shall be made 
available to State and Federal inspectors upon request.
    If imported fire ants are detected in nursery stock during an 
inspection by a Federal or State inspector, issuance of certificates for 
movement shall be suspended until necessary treatments are applied and 
the plants and nursery premises are determined to be free of the 
imported fire ant. A Federal or State inspector may declare a nursery to 
be free of the imported fire ant upon reinspection of the premises. This 
inspection must be

[[Page 113]]

conducted no sooner than 30 days after treatment to ensure its 
effectiveness. During this period, certification may be based upon the 
drench or immersion treatment provided in paragraph III.C.3. of this 
appendix, titled ``Plants--Balled or in Containers.''
    Upon notification by the department of agriculture in any State of 
destination that a confirmed imported fire ant infestation was found on 
a shipment from a nursery considered free of the imported fire ant, the 
department of agriculture in the State of origin shall cease its 
certification of shipments from that nursery. An investigation by 
Federal or State inspectors will commence immediately to determine the 
probable source of the problem and to ensure that the problem is 
resolved. If the problem is an infestation, issuance of certification 
for movement on the basis of imported-fire-ant-free premises will be 
suspended until treatment and elimination of the infestation is 
completed. Reinstatement into the program will be granted upon 
determination that the nursery premises are free of the imported fire 
ant, and that all other provisions of this subpart are being followed.
    In cases where the issuance of certificates is suspended through 
oral notification, the suspension and the reasons for the suspension 
will be confirmed in writing within 20 days of the oral notification of 
the suspension. Any person whose issuance of certificates has been 
suspended may appeal the decision, in writing, within 10 days after 
receiving the written suspension notice. The appeal must state all of 
the facts and reasons that the person wants the Administrator to 
consider in deciding the appeal. A hearing may be held to resolve any 
conflict as to any material fact. Rules of practice for the hearing will 
be adopted by the Administrator. As soon as practicable, the 
Administrator will grant or deny the appeal, in writing, stating the 
reasons for the decision.
    Violations of the quarantine shall be investigated by Federal or 
State inspectors and appropriate penalties will be assessed to 
discourage further violations.
    This imported-fire-ant-free nursery program is not mandatory for 
movement of regulated articles. Plants, balled or in containers, may 
otherwise be certified for movement using the chlorpyrifos, bifenthrin, 
tefluthrin, or fipronil treatments described in paragraph III.C.3 of 
this appendix, titled ``Plants, Balled or in Containers.'' However, 
certification for movement under the imported-fire-ant-free nursery 
program will be granted only if all of the provisions of this subpart 
are followed.
    Certification Period: Continuous as long as all provisions of the 
imported-fire-ant-free nursery program are followed.

 5. Field-Grown Woody Ornamentals (In-Field Treatment Prior to Harvest)

    Material: Chlorpyrifos used in combination with fenoxycarb (AWARD 
[reg]), hydramethylnon (AMDRO [reg]), pyriproxyfen 
(Distance [reg]), or methoprene (Extinguish [reg]) 
fire ant bait.
    Dosage: Fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg]), hydramethylnon (AMDRO 
[reg]), pyriproxyfen (Distance [reg]), or 
methoprene (Extinguish [reg]) at 1.0-1.5 lb (0.45-0.68 kg) 
bait/acre. Chlorpyrifos at 6.0 lb (2.7 kg) a.i./acre.
    Method: Apply fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg]), hydramethylnon 
(AMDRO [reg]), pyriproxyfen (Distance [reg]), or 
methoprene (Extinguish [reg]) only when ants are actively 
foraging (follow EPA-approved label directions for use). Broadcast 
application with any type of equipment that can be calibrated to deliver 
1.0-1.5 lb (0.45-0.68 kg) of bait per acre. Three to five days after the 
fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg]), hydramethylnon (AMDRO 
[reg]), or pyriproxyfen (Distance [reg]) 
application, apply chlorpyrifos broadcast at 6.0 lb (2.7 kg) a.i. per 
acre. Treatment area must extend at least 10 feet beyond the base of all 
plants that are to be certified.
    Exposure Period: 30 days. Plants can be certified 30 days after 
treatment.
    Certification Period: 12 weeks.
    Special Information: This in-field treatment is based on a 
sequential application of fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg]), 
hydramethylnon (AMDRO [reg]), pyriproxyfen (Distance 
[reg]), or methoprene (Extinguish [reg]) followed 
by chlorpyrifos. The combination treatment is necessary since broadcast 
application of chlorpyrifos (or other short-term residual insecticides) 
usually does not eliminate large, mature IFA colonies, and no bait, 
including fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg]) hydramethylnon (AMDRO 
[reg]), pyriproxyfen (Distance [reg]), or 
methoprene (Extinguish [reg]), is capable of providing a 
residual barrier against reinfestation by new queens. Therefore, the 
fenoxycarb (AWARD [reg]) hydramethylnon (AMDRO 
[reg]), pyriproxyfen (Distance [reg]), or 
methoprene (Extinguish [reg]) application will drastically 
reduce the IFA population while chlorpyrifos, applied approximately 5 
days later, will destroy any remaining weakened colonies and also leave 
a residual barrier against reinfestation by new queens for at least 12 
weeks.

          6. Blueberries and Other Fruit and Nut Nursery Stocks

    Certain States have special local need labeling in accordance with 
section 24(c) of FIFRA for D-z-n [reg] Diazinon AG-500 and D-
z-n [reg] Diazinon 50W, which APHIS will recognize as a 
regulatory treatment for containerized nonbearing blueberries and fruit 
and nut plants. Follow label directions for use.

[[Page 114]]

                       7. Plants--Greenhouse Grown

    Greenhouse grown plants are certifiable without treatment if the 
inspector determines that the greenhouse is constructed of fiberglass, 
glass, or plastic in such a way that IFA is physically excluded and 
cannot become established within the enclosure. No other treatment of 
the plants will be necessary if they are not exposed to infestation.

                              8. Grass--Sod

frozen food locker, or home freezer capable of rapidly reducing to and 
maintaining required temperature. Soil samples will be placed in 
containers, such as plastic bags--one sample per bag. The containers 
will be arranged in the freezer in a manner to allow the soil samples to 
freeze in the fastest possible time. If desired, the frozen samples may 
be shipped in one carton.
    Temperature: -10[deg] to -20 [deg]F (-23[deg] to -29 [deg]C) for at 
least 24 hours.
    Certification Period: As long as protected from recontamination.
    D. Mitigative Measures. The following measures are required to 
minimize impact on the environment and human health. Any person 
requesting certification to authorize the movement of regulated articles 
must adhere to these measures where applicable.
    1. All applicable Federal, State, and local environmental laws and 
regulations must be followed.
    2. Safety equipment and clothing, as specified by the label 
instructions, must be used and worn during treatments and during 
inspections.
    3. Safety practices shall be communicated, and regulated 
establishment managers must require that on-the-job safety practices be 
followed.

[[Page 115]]

    4. All pesticides must be applied, handled, stored, and used in 
accordance with label instructions.
    5. Empty pesticide containers must be disposed of in accordance with 
Federal and State regulations.
    6. Pesticide remaining in containers after completion of an 
application must be retained and disposed of in accordance with label 
instructions and Federal and State regulations.
    7. Oral or written warning must be provided to workers and the 
general public, indicating pesticide application areas during 
application and appropriate reentry periods.
    8. Owners/managers of regulated properties must take precautions to 
limit access by the public, livestock, and wildlife to treated areas.
    9. Accidental spill or water runoff of liquid or granular pesticides 
leading to potential contamination of ground and surface waters must be 
minimized by appropriate operating procedures. Catchment facilities 
(temporary or permanent) adequate to prevent contamination of ground and 
surface water are necessary in loading areas where liquid drenches and 
immersions are applied.
    10. An environmental monitoring plan, including monitoring 
procedures, must be implemented by APHIS. Monitoring must be conducted 
to determine if additional mitigative measures are necessary.

order to prevent the spread of the golden nematode (Globodera 
rostochiensis), which causes a dangerous disease of potatoes and certain 
other plants and is not widely prevalent or distributed within and 
throughout the United States. Through the aforementioned authorities, 
the Secretary imposes a quarantine on the State of New York with respect 
to the interstate movement from that State of the articles described in 
paragraph (b) of this section, issues regulations in this subpart 
governing the movement of such articles, and gives notice of this 
quarantine action.
    (b) Quarantine restrictions on interstate movement of specified 
regulated articles. No common carrier or other person shall move 
interstate from any quarantined State any of the following articles 
(defined in Sec. 301.85-1 as regulated articles), except in accordance 
with the conditions prescribed in this subpart:

Sec. 301.85-2  Authorization to designate, and terminate designation of, 
regulated areas and suppressive or generally infested areas; and to 
exempt articles from certification, permit, or other requirements.

    (a) Regulated areas and suppressive or generally infested areas. The 
Deputy Administrator shall list as regulated areas, in a supplemental 
regulation designated as Sec. 301.85-2a, each quarantined State; or 
each portion thereof in which golden nematode has been found or in which 
there is reason to believe that golden nematode is present,

[[Page 118]]

or which it is deemed necessary to regulate because of their proximity 
to infestation or their inseparability for quarantine enforcement 
purposes from infested localities. The Deputy Administrator, in the 
supplemental regulation, may divide any regulated area into a 
suppressive area or a generally infested area in accordance with the 
definitions thereof in Sec. 301.85-1. Less than an entire quarantined 
State will be designated as a regulated area only if the Deputy 
Administrator is of the opinion that:
    (1) The State has adopted and is enforcing a quarantine or 
regulation which imposes restrictions on the intrastate movement of the 
regulated articles which are substantially the same as those which are 
imposed with respect to the interstate movement of such articles under 
this subpart; and
    (2) The designation of less than the entire State as a regulated 
area will otherwise be adequate to prevent the interstate spread of the 
golden nematode.
    (b) Temporary designation of regulated areas and suppressive or 
generally infested areas. The Deputy Administrator or an authorized 
inspector may temporarily designate any other premises in a quarantined 
State as a regulated area and a suppressive or generally infested area, 
in accordance with the criteria specified in paragraph (a) of this 
section for listing such area, by serving written notice thereof on the 
owner or person in possession of such premises, and thereafter the 
interstate movement of regulated articles from such premises by any 
person having notice of the designation shall be subject to the 
applicable provisions of this subpart. As soon as practicable, such 
premises shall be added to the list in Sec. 301.85-2a if a basis then 
exists for their designation; otherwise the designation shall be 
terminated by the Deputy Administrator or an authorized inspector and 
notice thereof shall be given to the owner or person in possession of 
the premises.
    (c) Termination of designation as a regulated area and a suppressive 
or generally infested area. The Deputy Administrator shall terminate the 
designation provided for under paragraph (a) of this section of any area 
listed as a regulated area and suppressive or generally infested area 
when he determines that such designation is no longer required under the 
criteria specified in paragraph (a) of this section.
    (d) Exemption of articles from certification, permit, or other 
requirements. The Deputy Administrator may, in a supplemental regulation 
designated as Sec. 301.85-2b, list regulated articles or movements of 
regulated articles which shall be exempt from the certification, permit, 
or other requirements of this subpart under such conditions as he or she 
may prescribe, if he or she finds that facts exist as to the pest risk 
involved in the movement of such regulated articles which make it safe 
to so relieve such requirements.

Sec. 301.85-4  Issuance and cancellation of certificates and permits.

    (a) Certificates may be issued for any regulated articles (except 
soil samples for processing, testing, or analysis) by an inspector if 
the inspector determines that they are eligible for certification for 
movement to any destination under all Federal domestic plant quarantines 
applicable to such articles and:
    (1) Have originated in noninfested premises in a regulated area and 
have not been exposed to infestation while within the regulated areas; 
or
    (2) Have been treated to destroy infestation in accordance with part 
305 of this chapter; or
    (3) Have been grown, produced, manufactured, stored, or handled in 
such a

[[Page 121]]

manner that no infestation would be transmitted thereby.
    (b) Limited permits may be issued by an inspector to allow 
interstate movement of regulated articles (except soil samples for 
processing, testing or analysis) not eligible for certification under 
this subpart, to specified destinations for limited handling, 
utilization, or processing, or for treatment in accordance with part 305 
of this chapter, when, upon evaluation of the circumstances involved in 
each specific case he determines that such movement will not result in 
the spread of the golden nematode and requirements of other applicable 
Federal domestic plant quarantines have been met.
    (c) Restricted destination permits may be issued by an inspector to 
allow the interstate movement (for other than scientific purposes) of 
regulated articles (except soil samples for processing, testing, or 
analysis) to any destination permitted under all applicable Federal 
domestic plant quarantines if such articles are not eligible for 
certification under all such quarantines but would otherwise qualify for 
certification under this subpart.
    (d) Scientific permits to allow the interstate movement of regulated 
articles and certificates or permits to allow the movement of soil 
samples for processing, testing, or analysis in emergency situations may 
be issued by the Deputy Administrator under such conditions as may be 
prescribed in each specific case by the Deputy Administrator to prevent 
the spread of the golden nematode.
    (e) Certificate, limited permit, and restricted destination permit 
forms may be issued by an inspector to any person for use for subsequent 
shipments of regulated articles (except for soil samples for processing, 
testing, or analysis) provided such person is operating under a 
compliance agreement; and any such person may be authorized by an 
inspector to reproduce such forms on shipping containers or otherwise. 
Any such person may execute and issue the certificate forms, or 
reproductions of such forms, for the interstate movement of regulated 
articles from the premises of such person identified in the compliance 
agreement if such person has treated such regulated articles to destroy 
infestation in accordance with part 305 of this chapter, and if such 
regulated articles are eligible for certification for movement to any 
destination under all Federal domestic plant quarantines applicable to 
such articles. Any such person may execute and issue the limited permit 
forms, or reproductions of such forms, for interstate movement of 
regulated articles to specified destinations when the inspector has made 
the determinations specified in paragraph (b) of this section. Any such 
person may execute and issue the restricted destination permit forms, or 
reproductions of such forms, for the interstate movement of regulated 
articles not eligible for certification under all Federal domestic plant 
quarantines applicable to such articles, under the conditions specified

containers used to move host crops produced in a regulated area that 
have tested positive for Karnal bunt through the presence of bunted 
kernels;
    (b) Grain elevators/equipment/structures used for storing and 
handling host crops produced in a regulated area that have tested 
positive for Karnal bunt through the presence of bunted kernels;
    (c) Seed conditioning equipment and storage/handling equipment/
structures that have been used in the production of wheat, durum wheat, 
and triticale found to contain the spores of Tilletia indica;
    (d) Plants or plant parts (including grain, seed, and straw) and hay 
cut after reaching the dough stage of all varieties of wheat (Triticum 
aestivum), durum wheat (Triticum durum), and triticale (Triticum

for straw/stalks/seed heads for decorative purposes that have been 
processed or manufactured prior to movement and are intended for use 
indoors;

[[Page 129]]

    (e) Tilletia indica (Mitra) Mundkur;
    (f) Mechanized harvesting equipment that has been used in the 
production of wheat, durum wheat, or triticale that has tested positive 
for Karnal bunt through the presence of bunted kernels; and
    (g) Any other product, article, or means of conveyance when:
    (1) An inspector determines that it presents a risk of spreading 
Karnal bunt based on appropriate testing and the intended use of the 
product, article, or means of conveyance; and

Sec. 301.89-3  Regulated areas.

    (a) The Administrator will regulate each State or each portion of a 
State that is infected.
    (b) Less than an entire State will be listed as a regulated area 
only if the Administrator:
    (1)(i) Determines that the State has adopted and is enforcing 
restrictions on the intrastate movement of the regulated articles listed 
in Sec. 301.89-2 that are equivalent to the movement restrictions 
imposed by this subpart; and
    (ii) Determines that designating less than the entire State as a 
regulated area will prevent the spread of Karnal bunt; or
    (2) Exercises his or her extraordinary emergency authority under 7 
U.S.C. 150dd.
    (c) The Administrator may include noninfected acreage within a 
regulated area due to its proximity to an infestation or inseparability 
from the infected locality for regulatory purposes, as determined by:
    (1) Projections of the spread of Karnal bunt along the periphery of 
the infestation;
    (2) The availability of natural habitats and host materials within 
the noninfected acreage that are suitable for establishment and survival 
of Karnal bunt; and
    (3) The necessity of including uninfected acreage within the 
regulated area in order to establish readily identifiable boundaries.
    (d) The Administrator or an inspector may temporarily designate any 
nonregulated area as a regulated area in accordance with the criteria 
specified in paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) of this section. The 
Administrator will give written notice of this designation to the owner 
or person in possession of the nonregulated area, or, in the case of 
publicly owned land, to the person responsible for the management of the 
nonregulated area. Thereafter, the movement of any regulated article 
from an area temporarily designated as a regulated area is subject to 
this subpart. As soon as practicable, this area either will be added to 
the list of designated regulated areas in paragraph (g) of this section, 
or the Administrator will terminate the designation. The owner or person 
in possession of, or, in the case of publicly owned land, the person 
responsible for the management of, an area for which the designation is 
terminated will be given written notice of the termination as soon as 
practicable.
    (e) The Administrator will classify a field or area as a regulated 
area when:
    (1) It is a field planted with seed from a lot found to contain a 
bunted wheat kernel; or
    (2) It is a distinct definable area that contains at least one field 
that was found during survey to contain a bunted wheat kernel (the 
distinct definable area may include an area where Karnal bunt is not 
known to exist but where intensive surveys are required because of the 
area's proximity to a field found during survey to contain a bunted 
kernel); or
    (3) It is a distinct definable area that contains at least one field 
that has been determined to be associated with grain at a handling 
facility containing a bunted kernel of a host crop (the distinct 
definable area may include an area where Karnal bunt is not known to 
exist but where intensive surveys are required because of the area's 
proximity to the field associated with the bunted kernel at the handling 
facility).
    (f) A field known to have been infected with Karnal bunt, as well as 
any non-infected acreage surrounding the field, will be released from 
regulation if:

[[Page 130]]

    (1) The field is no longer being used for crop production; or
    (2) Each year for a period of 5 consecutive years, the field is 
subjected to any one of the following management practices (the practice 
used may vary from year to year):
    (i) Planted with a cultivated non-host crop;
    (ii) Tilled once annually; or
    (iii) Planted with a host crop that tests negative, through the 
absence of bunted kernels, for Karnal bunt.
    (g) The following areas or fields are designated as regulated areas 
(maps of the regulated areas may be obtained by contacting the Animal 
and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine, 
4700 River Road Unit 98, Riverdale, MD 20737-1236):

Sec. 301.89-14  [Reserved]



Sec. 301.89-15  Compensation for growers, handlers, and seed companies 
in the 1999-2000 and subsequent crop seasons.

    Growers, handlers, and seed companies are eligible to receive 
compensation from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for 
the 1999-2000 and subsequent crop seasons to mitigate losses or expenses 
incurred because of the Karnal bunt regulations and emergency actions, 
as follows:
    (a) Growers, handlers, and seed companies in areas under first 
regulated crop season. Growers, handlers, and seed companies are 
eligible to receive compensation for the loss in value of their wheat in 
accordance with paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) of this section if: The 
wheat was grown in a State where the Secretary has declared an 
extraordinary emergency; and the wheat was grown in an area of that 
State that became regulated for Karnal bunt after the crop was planted, 
or for which an Emergency Action Notification (PPQ Form 523) was issued 
after the crop was planted; and the wheat was grown in an area that 
remained regulated or under Emergency Action Notification at the time 
the wheat was sold. Growers and handlers of wheat grown in Oklahoma 
during the 2000-2001 growing season are eligible to receive compensation 
if the wheat was commingled in storage with wheat that meets the above 
requirements of this paragraph. Growers, handlers, and seed companies in 
areas under the first regulated crop season are eligible for 
compensation for 1999-2000 or subsequent crop season wheat and for wheat 
inventories in their possession that were unsold at the time the area 
became regulated. The compensation provided in this paragraph is for 
wheat grain, certified wheat seed, wheat held back from harvest by a 
grower in the 2000-2001 growing season for use as seed in the next 
growing season, and wheat grown with the intention of producing 
certified wheat seed.
    (1) Growers. Growers of wheat in an area under the first regulated 
crop season, who sell wheat that was tested by APHIS and found positive 
for Karnal bunt prior to sale, or that was tested by APHIS and found 
positive for

[[Page 138]]

Karnal bunt after sale and the price received by the grower is 
contingent on the test results, are eligible to receive compensation as 
described in paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) of this section. 
However, compensation for positive-testing wheat will not exceed $1.80 
per bushel under any circumstances.
    (i) If the wheat was grown under contract and a price was determined 
in the contract before the area where the wheat was grown became 
regulated, compensation will equal the contract price minus the actual 
price received by the grower.
    (ii) If the wheat was not grown under contract or a price was 
determined in the contract after the area where the wheat was grown 
became regulated, compensation will equal the estimated market price for 
the relevant class of wheat (meaning type of wheat, such as durum or 
hard red winter) minus the actual price received by the grower. The 
estimated market price will be calculated by APHIS for each class of 
wheat, taking into account the prices offered by relevant terminal 
markets (animal feed, milling, or export) during the harvest months for 
the area, with adjustments for transportation and other handling costs. 
Separate estimated market prices will be calculated for certified wheat 
seed and wheat grown with the intention of producing certified wheat 
seed, and wheat grain.
    (2) Handlers and seed companies. Handlers and seed companies who 
sell wheat grown in an area under the first regulated crop season are 
eligible to receive compensation only if the wheat was not tested by 
APHIS prior to purchase by the handler or seed company, but was tested 
by APHIS and found positive for Karnal bunt after purchase by the 
handler or seed company, as long as the price to be paid is not 
contingent on the test results. Compensation will equal the estimated 
market price for the relevant class of wheat (meaning type of wheat, 
such as durum or hard red winter) minus the actual price received by the 
handler or seed company. The estimated market price will be calculated 
by APHIS for each class of wheat, taking into account the prices offered 
by relevant terminal markets (animal feed, milling, or export) during 
the harvest months for the area, with adjustments for transportation and 
other handling costs. Separate estimated market prices will be 
calculated for certified wheat seed and wheat grown with the intention 
of producing certified wheat seed, and wheat grain. However, 
compensation will not exceed $1.80 per bushel under any circumstances.
    (b) Growers, handlers, and seed companies in previously regulated 
areas. For the 1999-2000 crop season and the 2000-2001 crop season only, 
growers, handlers, and seed companies are eligible to receive 
compensation for the loss in value of their wheat in accordance with 
paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(2) of this section if: The wheat was grown in 
a State where the Secretary has declared an extraordinary emergency; and 
the wheat was grown in an area of that State that became regulated for 
Karnal bunt before the crop was planted, or for which an Emergency 
Action Notification (PPQ Form 523) was issued before the crop was 
planted; and the wheat was grown in an area that remained regulated or 
under Emergency Action Notification at the time the wheat was sold. 
Growers, handlers, and seed companies in previously regulated areas will 
not be eligible for compensation for wheat from the 2001-2002 and 
subsequent crop seasons; except that, for growers or handlers of wheat 
harvested in any field in the Texas counties of Archer, Baylor, 
Throckmorton, and Young during the 2000-2001 crop season that has not 
been found to contain a bunted wheat kernel, this requirement applies to 
compensation for wheat from the 2002-2003 and subsequent crop seasons. 
The compensation provided in this paragraph is for wheat grain, 
certified wheat seed, and wheat grown with the intention of producing 
certified wheat seed.
    (1) Growers. Growers of wheat in a previously regulated area who 
sell wheat that was tested by APHIS and found positive for Karnal bunt 
prior to sale, or that was tested by APHIS and found positive for Karnal 
bunt after sale and the price received by the grower is contingent on 
the test results, are eligible to receive compensation at the rate of 
$.60 per bushel of positive testing wheat.

[[Page 139]]

    (2) Handlers and seed companies. Handlers and seed companies who 
sell wheat grown in a previously regulated area are eligible to receive 
compensation only if the wheat was not tested by APHIS prior to purchase 
by the handler, but was tested by APHIS and found positive for Karnal 
bunt after purchase by the handler or seed company, as long as the price 
to be paid by the handler or seed company is not contingent on the test 
results. Compensation will be at the rate of $.60 per bushel of positive 
testing wheat.
    (c) To claim compensation. Compensation payments to growers, 
handlers, and seed companies under paragraphs (a) and (b) of this 
section will be issued by the Farm Service Agency (FSA). Claims for 
compensation for the 1999-2000 crop season must be received by FSA on or 
before December 4, 2001. Claims for compensation for subsequent crop 
seasons must be received by FSA on or before March 1 of the year 
following that crop season. The Administrator may extend the deadline, 
upon request in specific cases, when unusual and unforeseen 
circumstances occur that prevent or hinder a claimant from requesting 
compensation on or before these dates. To claim compensation, a grower, 
handler, or seed company must complete and submit to the local FSA 
county office the following documents:
    (1) Growers, handlers, and seed companies. A grower, handler, or 
seed company must submit a Karnal Bunt Compensation Claim form, provided 
by FSA. If the wheat was grown in an area that is not a regulated area, 
but for which an Emergency Action Notification (PPQ Form 523) (EAN) has 
been issued, the grower, handler, or seed company must submit a copy of 
the EAN. Growers, handlers, and seed companies must also submit a copy 
of the Karnal bunt certificate issued by APHIS that shows the Karnal 
bunt test results, and verification as to the actual (not estimated) 
weight of the wheat that tested positive (such as a copy of a facility 
weigh ticket, or other verification). For compensation claims for wheat 
seed, a grower or seed company must submit documentation showing that 
the wheat is either certified seed or was grown with the intention of 
producing certified seed (this documentation may include one or more of 
the following types of documents: an application to the State seed 
certification agency for field inspection; a bulk sale certificate; 
certification tags or labels issued by the State seed certification 
agency; or a document issued by the State seed certification agency 
verifying that the wheat is certified seed);
    (2) Growers. In addition to the documents required in paragraph 
(c)(1) of this section, growers must submit a copy of the receipt for 
the final sale of the wheat, showing the total bushels sold and the 
total price received by the grower. Growers compensated under paragraph 
(b)(1) of this section (previously regulated areas) whose wheat was not 
tested prior to sale must submit documentation showing that the price 
paid to the grower was contingent on test results (such as a copy of the 
receipt for the final sale of the wheat or a copy of the contract the 
grower has for the wheat, if this information appears on those 
documents).
    (3) Handlers and seed companies. In addition to the documents 
required in paragraph (c)(1) of this section, handlers and seed 
companies must submit a copy of the receipt for the final sale of the 
wheat, showing the total bushels sold and the total price received by 
the handler or seed company. The handler or seed company must also 
submit documentation showing that the price paid or to be paid to the 
grower is not contingent on the test results (such as a copy of the 
receipt for the purchase of the wheat or a copy of the contract the 
handler or seed company has with the grower, if this information appears 
on those documents).
    (d) Special allowance for negative wheat grown in Archer, Baylor, 
Throckmorton, and Young Counties, TX, in the 2000-2001 growing season. 
Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, wheat that was 
harvested from fields in Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, or Young 
Counties, TX, in the 2000-2001 growing season, and that tested negative 
for Karnal bunt after harvest, is eligible for compensation in 
accordance with paragraph (a) of this section.

[[Page 140]]

    (e) Special allowance for disposal costs for treated uncertified 
wheat seed in Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, and Young Counties, TX, in 
the 2000-2001 growing season. Notwithstanding any other provision of 
this section, growers in Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, or Young 
Counties, TX, who own treated uncertified wheat seed that tested 
positive for Karnal bunt spores during the 2000-2001 growing season are 
eligible for compensation in accordance with this paragraph. The grower 
is eligible for compensation for the costs of disposing of such wheat 
seed, by burial on the grower's premises, by burial at a landfill, or 
through another means approved by APHIS. The compensation for disposing 
of wheat seed by burial on the grower's premises is $1.00 per bushel. 
The compensation for disposing of wheat seed by burial at a landfill, or 
through another means approved by APHIS, is the actual cost of disposal, 
up to $1.20 per bushel, as verified by receipts for disposal costs. To 
apply for this compensation, the grower must submit a Karnal Bunt 
Compensation Claim form, provided by FSA, and must also submit a copy of 
the Karnal bunt certificate issued by APHIS that shows the Karnal bunt 
test results, and verification as to the actual (not estimated) weight 
of the uncertified wheat seed that tested positive for spores (such as a 
copy of a facility weigh ticket, or other verification). For seed 
disposed of by burial at a landfill the grower must also submit one or 
more receipts for the disposal costs of the uncertified wheat seed, 
showing the total bushels destroyed and the total disposal costs 
(landfill fees, transportation costs, etc.).

Sec. 301.89-16  Compensation for grain storage facilities, flour millers, 
National Survey participants, and certain custom harvesters and equipment 
owners or lessees for the 1999-2000 and subsequent crop seasons.

    Owners of grain storage facilities, flour millers, and participants 
in the National Karnal Bunt Survey are eligible to receive compensation 
from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the 1999-
2000and subsequent crop seasons to mitigate losses or expenses incurred 
because of the Karnal bunt regulations and emergency actions, as 
follows:
    (a) Decontamination of grain storage facilities. Owners of grain 
storage facilities that are in States where the Secretary has declared 
an extraordinary emergency, and who have decontaminated their grain 
storage facilities pursuant to either an Emergency Action Notification 
(PPQ Form 523) issued by an inspector or a letter issued by an inspector 
ordering decontamination of the facilities, are eligible to be 
compensated, on a one time only basis for each facility for each covered 
crop year wheat, for up to 50 percent of the direct cost of 
decontamination. However, compensation will not exceed $20,000 per grain 
storage facility (as defined in Sec. 301.89-1). General clean-up, 
repair, and refurbishment costs are excluded from compensation. 
Compensation payments will be issued by APHIS. To claim compensation, 
the owner of the grain storage facility must submit to an inspector 
records demonstrating that decontamination was performed on all 
structures, conveyances, or materials ordered by APHIS to be 
decontaminated. The records must include a copy of the Emergency Action 
Notification or the letter from an inspector ordering decontamination, 
contracts with individuals or companies hired to perform the 
decontamination, receipts for equipment and materials purchased to 
perform the decontamination, time sheets for employees of the grain 
storage facility who performed activities connected to the 
decontamination, and any other documentation that helps show the cost to 
the owner and that decontamination has been completed. Claims for 
compensation for the 1999-2000 crop season must be received by APHIS on 
or before December 4, 2001. Claims for compensation for the 2000-2001 
crop season and beyond must be received by March 1 of the year following 
that crop season. The Administrator may extend these deadlines upon 
written request in specific cases, when unusual and unforeseen 
circumstances occur that prevent or hinder a claimant from requesting 
compensation on or before these dates.

[[Page 141]]

    (b) Flour millers. Flour millers who, in accordance with a 
compliance agreement with APHIS, heat treat millfeed that is required by 
APHIS to be heat treated are eligible to be compensated at the rate of 
$35.00 per short ton of millfeed. The amount of millfeed compensated 
will be calculated by multiplying the weight of wheat from the regulated 
area received by the miller by 25 percent (the average percent of 
millfeed derived from a short ton of grain). Compensation payments will 
be issued by APHIS. To claim compensation, the miller must submit to an 
inspector verification as to the actual (not estimated) weight of the 
wheat (such as a copy of a facility weigh ticket or a copy of the bill 
of lading for the wheat, if the actual weight appears on those 
documents, or other verification). Flour millers must also submit 
verification that the millfeed was heat treated (such as a copy of the 
limited permit under which the wheat was moved to a treatment facility 
and a copy of the bill of lading accompanying that movement; or a copy 
of PPQ Form 700 (which includes certification of processing) signed by 
the inspector who monitors the mill). Claims for compensation for the 
1999-2000 crop season must be received by APHIS on or before December 4, 
2001. Claims for compensation for the 2000-2001 crop season and beyond 
must be received by March 1 of the year following that crop season. The 
Administrator may extend these deadlines upon written request in 
specific cases, when unusual and unforeseen circumstances occur that 
prevent or hinder a claimant from requesting compensation on or before 
these dates.
    (c) National Karnal Bunt Survey participants. If a grain storage 
facility participating in the National Karnal Bunt Survey tests positive 
for Karnal bunt, the facility will be regulated, and may be ordered 
decontaminated, pursuant to either an Emergency Action Notification (PPQ 
Form 523) issued by an inspector or a letter issued by an inspector 
ordering decontamination of the facility. If the Secretary has declared 
an extraordinary emergency in the State in which the grain storage 
facility is located, the owner will be eligible for compensation as 
follows:
    (1) Loss in value of positive wheat. The owner of the grain storage 
facility will be compensated for the loss in value of positive wheat. 
Compensation will equal the estimated market price for the relevant 
class of wheat minus the actual price received for the wheat. The 
estimated market price will be calculated by APHIS for each class of 
wheat, taking into account the prices offered by relevant terminal 
markets (animal feed, milling, or export) during the relevant time 
period for that facility, with adjustments for transportation and other 
handling costs. However, compensation will not exceed $1.80 per bushel 
under any circumstances. Compensation payments for loss in value of 
wheat will be issued by the Farm Service Agency (FSA). To claim 
compensation, the owner of the facility must submit to the local FSA 
office a Karnal Bunt Compensation Claim form, provided by FSA. The owner 
of the facility must also submit to FSA a copy of the Emergency Action 
Notification or letter from an inspector under which the facility is or 
was quarantined; verification as to the actual (not estimated) weight of 
the wheat (such as a copy of a facility weigh ticket or a copy of the 
bill of lading for the wheat, if the actual weight appears on those 
documents, or other verification); and a copy of the receipt for the 
final sale of the wheat, showing the total bushels sold and the total 
price received by the owner of the grain storage facility. Claims for 
compensation for the 1999-2000 crop season must be received by APHIS on 
or before December 4, 2001. Claims for compensation for the 2000-2001 
crop season and beyond must be received by March 1 of the year following 
that crop season. The Administrator may extend these deadlines upon 
written request in specific cases, when unusual and unforeseen 
circumstances occur that prevent or hinder a claimant from requesting 
compensation on or before these dates.
    (2) Decontamination of grain storage facilities. The owner of the 
facility will be compensated on a one time only basis for each grain 
storage facility for each covered crop year wheat for the direct costs 
of decontamination of the facility at the same rate described under

[[Page 142]]

paragraph (a) of this section (up to 50 per cent of the direct costs of 
decontamination, not to exceed $20,000 per grain storage facility). 
Compensation payments for decontamination of grain storage facilities 
will be issued by APHIS, and claims for compensation must be submitted 
in accordance with the provisions in paragraph (a) of this 
section.Claims for compensation for the 1999-2000 crop season must be 
received by APHIS on or before December 4, 2001. Claims for compensation 
for the 2000-2001 crop season and beyond must be received by March 1 of 
the year following that crop season. The Administrator may extend these 
deadlines upon written request in specific cases, when unusual and 
unforeseen circumstances occur that prevent or hinder a claimant from 
requesting compensation on or before these dates.
    (d) Special allowances for custom harvesters and equipment owners or 
lessees for costs related to cleaning and disinfection of mechanized 
harvesting and other equipment in Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, and 
Young Counties, TX, in the 2000-2001 crop season. All claims for 
compensation under this paragraph Sec. 301.89-16(d) must be received by 
APHIS on or before September 6, 2005. The Administrator may extend this 
deadline upon written request in specific cases, when unusual and 
unforeseen circumstances occur that prevent or hinder a claimant from 
requesting compensation on or before this date. All compensation 
payments made under this paragraph Sec. 301.89-16(d) will be issued by 
APHIS. Claims for compensation should be sent to Plant Protection and 
Quarantine, APHIS, USDA, 304 West Main Street, Olney, TX 76374.
    (1) Custom harvesters. (i) Cleaning and disinfection of mechanized 
harvesting equipment. Custom harvesters who harvested host crops that an 
inspector determined to be infected with Karnal bunt and that were grown 
in Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, or Young Counties, TX, during the 2000-
2001 crop season are eligible to receive compensation for the cost of 
cleaning and disinfecting their mechanized harvesting equipment as 
required by Sec. 301.89-12(a). Compensation for the cost of cleaning 
and disinfection mechanized harvesting equipment used to harvest Karnal 
bunt-infected host crops will be either the actual cost or $750 per 
cleaned machine, whichever is less. To claim compensation, a custom 
harvester must provide copies of a contract or other signed agreement 
for harvesting in Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, or Young County during 
the 2000-2001 crop season, signed on a date prior to the designation of 
the county as a regulated area for Karnal bunt, or an affidavit stating 
that the custom harvester entered into an agreement to harvest in 
Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, or Young County during the 2000-2001 crop 
season prior to the designation of the county as a regulated area for 
Karnal bunt, signed by the customer with whom the custom harvester 
entered into the agreement; a copy of the PPQ-540 certificate issued to 
allow the movement of mechanized harvesting equipment from a regulated 
area after it had been used to harvest host crops that an inspector 
determined to be infected with Karnal bunt and had been subsequently 
cleaned and disinfected; and a receipt showing the cost of the cleaning 
and disinfection.
    (ii) Contracts lost due to cleaning and disinfection. Custom 
harvesters who harvested host crops that an inspector determined to be 
infected with Karnal bunt and that were grown in Archer, Baylor, 
Throckmorton, or Young Counties, TX, during the 2000-2001 crop season 
are also eligible to be compensated for the revenue lost if they lost 
one contract due to downtime necessitated by cleaning and disinfection, 
if the contract to harvest Karnal bunt-infected host crops in a 
previously nonregulated area was signed before the area was declared a 
regulated area for Karnal bunt. Compensation will only be provided for 
one contract lost due to cleaning and disinfection. Compensation for any 
contract that was lost due to cleaning and disinfection will be either 
the full value of the contract or $23.48 for each acre that was to have 
been harvested under the contract, whichever is less. To claim 
compensation, a custom harvester must provide copies of a contract or 
other signed agreement for harvesting in Archer, Baylor, Throckmorton, 
or Young County during the 2000-2001 crop season,

the contract for harvesting in an area not regulated for Karnal bunt 
that had been lost due to time lost to cleaning and disinfecting 
harvesting equipment, signed on a date prior to the designation of the 
relevant county as a regulated area for Karnal bunt, for which the 
custom harvester will receive compensation, or an affidavit stating that 
the custom harvester entered into an agreement to harvest in an area not 
regulated for Karnal bunt prior to the designation of the county as a 
regulated area for Karnal bunt and stating the number of acres that were 
to have been harvested and the amount the custom harvester was to have 
been paid under the agreement, signed by the customer with whom the 
custom harvester entered into the agreement.
    (iii) Fixed costs incurred during cleaning and disinfection. Custom 
harvesters who harvested host crops that an inspector determined to be 
infected with Karnal bunt and that were grown in Archer, Baylor, 
Throckmorton, or Young Counties, TX, during the 2000-2001 crop season 
who do not apply for compensation for a contract lost due to cleaning 
and disinfection as described in paragraph (d)(1)(ii) of this section 
are eligible for compensation for fixed costs incurred during cleaning 
and disinfection. Compensation for fixed costs incurred during cleaning 
and disinfection will be $2,000. To claim compensation, a custom

notice that the product, article or means of conveyance is subject to 
the restrictions in the quarantine and regulations.



Sec. 301.91-3  Regulated areas.

    (a) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (b) of this section, 
the Deputy Administrator shall list as a regulated area in paragraph (c) 
of this section, the State, or any portion thereof, in which European 
larch canker has been found by an inspector or in which the Deputy 
Administrator has reason to believe that European larch canker is 
present, or any portion of a quarantined State which the Deputy 
Administrator deems necessary to regulate because of its proximity to a 
European larch canker infestation or its inseparability for quarantine 
enforcement purpose from localities in which European larch canker 
occurs. Less than an entire quarantined State will be designated as a 
regulated area only if the Deputy Administrator determines that:
    (1) The State has adopted and is enforcing a quarantine or 
regulation which imposes restrictions on the intrastate movement of the 
regulated articles which are substantially the same as those which are 
imposed with respect to the interstate movement of such articles under 
this subpart; and
    (2) The designation of less than the entire State as a regulated 
area will otherwise be adequate to prevent the artifical interstate 
spread of European larch canker.
    (b) The Deputy Administrator or an inspector may temporarily 
designate any nonregulated area in a quarantined State as a regulated 
area in accordance with the criteria specified in paragraph (a) of this 
section for listing such area. Written notice of such designaton shall 
be given to the owner or person in possession of such nonregulated area, 
and, thereafter, the interstate movement of any regulated article from 
such area shall be subject to the applicable provisions of this subpart. 
As soon as practicable, such area shall be added to the list in 
paragraph (c) of this section or such designation shall be terminated by 
the Deputy Administrator or an inspector, and notice thereof shall be 
given to the owner or person in possession of the area.
    (c) The areas described below are designated as regulated areas:

                                  Maine

Sec. 301.92-11  Inspection and sampling protocol.

    (a) Annual nursery inspection and sampling. To meet the requirements 
of Sec. 301.92-5(a)(1)(iv) of this subpart, nurseries that ship 
regulated articles of nursery stock interstate must be inspected for 
symptoms of Phytophthora ramorum annually in accordance with this 
section.
    (1) If the nursery contains 100 or fewer regulated articles, an 
inspector will inspect each regulated article. If the nursery contains 
more than 100 regulated articles, an inspector will inspect 100 
regulated articles and at least 2 percent of the number of regulated 
articles contained in the nursery that exceeds 100. The regulated 
articles to inspected will be randomly selected from throughout the 
nursery.
    (2) If symptomatic plants are found upon inspection, the inspector 
must collect at least one sample per symptomatic plant.
    (3) If fewer than 40 symptomatic plants are found in a nursery 
during an annual inspection, the inspector must collect samples from 
nonsymptomatic regulated articles of nursery stock so that the total 
number of sampled plants is at least 40.
    (4) Samples must be labeled and sent for testing to a laboratory 
approved by APHIS.
    (5) If any regulated articles within a nursery are found to be 
infected with Phytophthora ramorum, the nursery will be prohibited from 
moving regulated articles interstate until such time as an inspector can 
determine that the nursery is free of Phytophthora ramorum.
    (b) Inspection and sampling of individual shipments. To meet the 
requirements of Sec. 301.92-5(a)(1)(iv) of this subpart, each shipment 
of regulated articles of nursery stock intended for interstate movement 
must be inspected for symptoms of Phytophthora ramorum in accordance 
with this section.
    (1) If a shipment contains 100 or fewer regulated articles, an 
inspector will inspect each regulated article. If a shipment contains 
more than 100 regulated articles, an inspector will inspect 100 
regulated articles and at least 2 percent of the number of regulated 
articles contained in the shipment that exceeds 100. The regulated 
articles to be inspected will be randomly selected.
    (2) If symptomatic plants are found upon inspection, the inspector 
will collect at least one sample per symptomatic plant, and one sample 
per regulated article of nursery stock that is in close proximity to, or 
that has had physical contact with a symptomatic plant.
    (3) Samples will be labeled and sent for testing to a laboratory 
approved by APHIS, and must be found free of Phytophthora ramorum prior 
to the interstate movement of any regulated articles contained in the 
shipment.
    (4) If any plants intended for interstate movement are found to be 
infected with Phytophthora ramorum, the

[[Page 154]]

nursery from which they originate will be prohibited from moving 
regulated articles interstate until such as time as an inspector can 
determine that the nursery is free of Phytophthora ramorum.

    \3\ Inspectors are assigned to local offices of the Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service, which are listed in telephone directories. 
Information concerning these offices may also be obtained from the 
Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and 
Quarantine, Domestic and Emergency Operations, 4700 River Road Unit 134, 
Riverdale, Maryland 20737-1236.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1) (i) The regulated article has been treated in accordance with 
Sec. 301.93-10 of this subpart; or
    (ii) Based on inspection of the premises of origin, or treatment of 
the premises of origin in accordance with Sec. 301.93-10(c) of this 
subpart, the premises are free from Oriental fruit flies and the 
regulated article has not been exposed to Oriental fruit fly; or
    (iii) Based on inspection of the regulated article, it is free of 
Oriental fruit fly; and
    (2) The regulated article is to be moved in compliance with any 
additional conditions deemed necessary under section 414 of the Plant 
Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) \4\ to prevent the spread of the Oriental 
fruit fly; and
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ An inspector may hold, seize, quarantine, treat, apply other 
remedial measures to, destory, or otherwise dispose of plants, plant 
pests, or other articles in accordance with sections 414, 421, and 434

movement of a regulated article if the inspector determines that:
    (1) The regulated article is to be moved interstate to a specified 
destination for specified handling, utilization, or processing (the 
destination and other conditions to be listed in the limited permit), 
and this interstate movement will not result in the spread of the 
Oriental fruit fly because life stages of the Oriental fruit fly will be 
destroyed by the specified handling, utilization, or processing.
    (2) The regulated article is to be moved interstate in compliance 
with any additional conditions deemed necessary under section 414 of the 
Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7714) \4\ to prevent the spread of the 
Oriental fruit fly; and
    (3) The regulated article is eligible for interstate movement under 
all other Federal domestic plant quarantines and regulations applicable 
to the regulated article.
    (c) Certificates and limited permits for use for interstate movement 
of regulated articles may be issued by an inspector or person engaged in 
growing, handling, or moving regulated articles provided the person is 
operating under a compliance agreement. A person operating under a 
compliance agreement may execute a certificate for the interstate 
movement of a regulated article if an inspector has determined that the 
regulated article is otherwise eligible for a certificate in accordance 
with paragraph (a) of this section. A person operating under a 
compliance agreement may execute a limited permit for interstate 
movement of a regulated article when an inspector has determined that 
the regulated article is eligible for a limited permit in accordance 
with paragraph (b) of this section.
    (d) Any certificate or limited permit that has been issued may be 
withdrawn by an inspector orally or in writing, if the inspector 
determines that the holder of the certificate or limited permit has not 
complied with all conditions under this subpart for the use of the 
certificate or limited permit. If the withdrawal is oral, the withdrawal 
and the reasons for the withdrawal shall be confirmed in writing as 
promptly as

[[Page 158]]

    (b) Premises. A field, grove, or area that is located within the 
quarantined area but outside the infested core area, and that produces 
regulated articles, must receive regular treatments with either 
malathion or spinosad bait spray. These treatments must take place at 6-
to 10-day intervals, starting a sufficient time before harvest (but not 
less than 30 days before harvest) to allow for completion of egg and 
larvae development of the Oriental fruit fly. Determination of the time 
period must be based on the day degrees model for the Oriental fruit 
fly. Once treatment has begun, it must continue through the harvest 
period. The malathion bait spray treatment must be applied by aircraft 
or ground equipment at a rate of 2.4 oz technical grade malathion and 
9.6 oz of protein hydrolysate per acre. The spinosad bait spray 
treatment must be applied by aircraft or ground equipment at a rate of 
0.01 oz of a USDA-approved spinosad formulation and 48 oz of protein 
hydrolysate per acre. For ground applications, the mixture may be 
diluted with water to improve coverage.
    (c) Soil. Soil within the drip area of plants which are producing or 
have

[[Page 160]]

produced the fruits, nuts, vegetables, and berries listed in Sec. 
301.93-2(a) of this subpart: Apply diazinon at the rate of 5 pounds 
active ingredient per acre to the soil within the drip area with 
sufficient water to wet the soil to at least a depth of \1/2\ inch. Both 
immersion and pour-on treatment procedures are also acceptable.

Sec. 301.99-3  Quarantined areas.

    (a) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (b) of this section, 
the Administrator will list as a quarantined area in paragraph (c) of 
this section each State, or each portion of a State, in which the sapote 
fruit fly has been found by an inspector, in which the Administrator has 
reason to believe that the sapote fruit fly is present, or that the 
Administrator considers necessary to quarantine because of its 
inseparability for quarantine enforcement purposes from localities in 
which the sapote fruit fly has been found. Less than an entire State 
will be designated as a quarantined area only if the Administrator 
determines that:
    (1) The State has adopted and is enforcing restrictions on the 
intrastate movement of the regulated articles that are equivalent to 
those imposed by this subpart on the interstate movement of regulated 
articles; and
    (2) The designation of less than the entire State as a quarantined 
area will prevent the interstate spread of the sapote fruit fly.
    (b) The Administrator or an inspector may temporarily designate any 
nonquarantined area in a State as a quarantined area in accordance with 
paragraph (a) of this section. The Administrator will give a copy of 
this regulation along with a written notice for the temporary 
designation to the owner or person in possession of the nonquarantined 
area. Thereafter, the interstate movement of any regulated article from 
an area temporarily designated as a quarantined area will be subject to 
this subpart. As soon as practicable, the area will be added to the list 
in paragraph (c) of this section or the designation will be terminated 
by the Administrator or an inspector.

[[Page 172]]

The owner or person in possession of an area for which designation is 
terminated will be given notice of the termination as soon as 
practicable.
    (c) The areas described below are designated as quarantined areas: 
There are no areas in the continental United States quarantined for the 
sapote fruit fly.

(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 
0579-0222)



Sec. 301.99-9  Costs and charges.

    The services of the inspector during normal business hours (8 a.m. 
to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays) will be furnished 
without cost. The user will be responsible for all costs and charges 
arising from inspection and other services provided outside normal 
business hours.



Sec. 301.99-10  Treatments.

    Treatment schedules listed in part 305 of this chapter to destroy 
the sapote fruit fly are authorized for use on regulated articles. The 
following treatments also may be used for the regulated articles 
indicated:
    (a) Soil within the dripline of plants that are producing or have 
produced the fruits and vegetables listed in Sec. 301.99-2(a) of this 
subpart. Apply diazinon at the rate of 5 pounds active ingredient per 
acre to the soil within the dripline with sufficient water to wet the 
soil to at least a depth of \1/2\ inch.
    (b) Citrus fruits. Regulated citrus fruits originating inside the 
quarantined area that are to be moved outside the quarantined area may 
be treated with methyl bromide fumigation in APHIS-approved chambers. 
Exposure period for this treatment is 2 hours.\9\ Fruit pulp temperature 
must be between 21.1 [deg]C and 29.4 [deg]C (70 [deg]F and 85 [deg]F). 
This temperature requirement refers to fruit pulp only and not to air 
temperature within the chamber. Fruit taken from a cooling room may have 
to be pre-warmed before fumigation is attempted. To determine fruit pulp 
temperature, stab several fruit to the center with a suitable 
thermometer that reads at least in whole degrees (F or C). The lowest 
temperature should be used, not the average. The methyl bromide dosage 
is set at a rate of 2.5 pounds of

[[Page 175]]

100 percent pure, type ``Q'' (for quarantine use only) methyl bromide 
per 1,000 cubic feet of chamber space.\10\ However, if, prior to 
treatment, representative sampling reveals a level of infestation 
greater than 0.5 percent for the lot, then the fruit is ineligible for 
treatment.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ To enhance equal concentrations of methyl bromide throughout the 
chamber, a fan should be placed near the point of gas introduction, and 
allowed to run for at least 15 minutes.
    \10\ Dosage is based upon chamber volume, not the volume of the 
fruit being treated. Fruit should be in cartons approved for fumigation. 
Cartons must be placed on pallets. There should be an air space of at 
least 1 foot between adjacent pallet loads; at least 1 foot between 
chamber walls and the nearest carton of fruit; and at least 2 feet 
between the height of the stack and the ceiling of the chamber. The 
compressed liquid methyl bromide inside the cylinder must be put through 
a volatilizer prior to injection into the chamber. Water temperature in 
the volatilizer must never fall below 65.6 [deg]C (150 [deg]F) at any 
time during gas injection.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (c) Premises. Fields, groves, or areas that are located within a 
quarantined area but outside the infested core area and that produce 
regulated articles may receive regular treatments with either malathion 
or spinosad bait spray as an alternative to treating the regulated 
articles with methyl bromide fumigation or those treatments provided in 
part 305 of this chapter. These treatments must take place at 6-to 10-
day intervals, starting a sufficient time before harvest (but not less 
than 30 days before harvest) to allow for development of sapote fruit 
fly egg and larvae. Determination of the time period must be based on 
the day degrees model for sapote fruit fly. Once treatment has begun, it 
must continue through the harvest period. The malathion bait spray 
treatment must be applied by aircraft or ground equipment at a rate of 
2.4 oz of technical grade malathion and 9.6 oz of protein hydrolysate 
per acre. The spinosad bait spray treatment must be applied by aircraft 
or ground equipment at a rate of 0.01 oz of a USDA-approved spinosad 
formulation and 48 oz of protein hydrolysate per acre. For ground 
applications, the mixture may be diluted with water to improve coverage.

Sec. Sec. 305.3-305.4  [Reserved]



                       Subpart_Chemical Treatments



Sec. 305.5  Treatment requirements.

    (a) Certified facility. The fumigation treatment facility must be 
certified by APHIS. Facilities are required to be inspected and 
recertified annually, or as often as APHIS directs, depending upon 
treatments performed, commodities handled, and operations conducted at 
the facility. In order to be certified, a fumigation facility must:
    (1) Be capable of administering the required dosage range for the 
required duration and at the appropriate temperature.
    (2) Be adequate to contain the fumigant and be constructed from 
material that is not reactive to the fumigant.
    (3) For vacuum fumigation facilities, be constructed to withstand 
required negative pressure.
    (b) Monitoring. Treatment must be monitored by an official 
authorized by APHIS to ensure proper administration of the treatment, 
including that the correct amount of gas reaches the target organism and 
that an adequate number and placement of blowers, fans, sampling tubes, 
or monitoring lines are used in the treatment enclosure. An official 
authorized by APHIS approves, adjusts, or rejects the treatment.
    (c) Treatment procedures. (1) To kill the pest, all chemical 
applications must be administered in accordance with an Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) approved pesticide label

[[Page 208]]

and the APHIS-approved treatment schedule prescribed in this part. If 
EPA cancels approval for the use of a pesticide on a commodity, then the 
treatment schedule prescribed in this part is no longer authorized for 
that commodity. If the commodity is not listed on the pesticide label 
and/or a Federal quarantine or crisis exemption in accordance with FIFRA 
section 18, then no chemical treatment is available.
    (2) Temperature/concentration readings must be taken for items known 
to be sorptive or whose sorptive properties are unknown when treatment 
is administered in chambers at normal atmospheric pressure.
    (3) The volume of the commodity stacked inside the treatment 
enclosure must not exceed \2/3\ of the volume of the enclosure. Stacking 
must be approved by an official authorized by APHIS before treatment 
begins. All commodities undergoing treatment must be listed on the 
label.
    (4) Recording and measuring equipment must be adequate to accurately 
monitor the gas concentration, to ensure the correct amount of gas 
reaches the pests, and to detect any leaks in the enclosure. At least 
three sampling tubes or monitoring lines must be used in the treatment 
enclosure.
    (5) An adequate number of blowers or fans must be used inside of the 
treatment enclosure to uniformly distribute gas throughout the 
enclosure. The circulation system must be able to recirculate the entire 
volume of gas in the enclosure in 3 minutes or less.
    (6) The exposure period begins after all gas has been introduced.
    (7) For vacuum fumigation: The vacuum pump must be able to reduce 
pressure in the treatment enclosure to 1-2 inches of mercury in 15 
minutes or less.
