Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) website at https://www.aphis.usda.gov/ aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/animaland-animal-product-importinformation/animal-health-status-ofregions/. APHIS receives notice of ASF outbreaks from veterinary officials of the exporting country, from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), or from other publically available sources the Administrator determines to be reliable. In a report dated August 6, 2018, the veterinary authorities of China reported to the OIE confirmation of an ASF outbreak. Although the importation of most swine commodities from China into the United States is already restricted based on that country’s classical swine fever, foot-and-mouth disease, and swine vesicular disease status, APHIS has determined that it is necessary to impose ASF-related restrictions on the importation of pork and pork products from China into the United States. Therefore, in response to this outbreak, APHIS has added China to the list of regions where ASF exists or is reasonably believed to exist. As a result, pork and pork products, including casings, from China are subject to APHIS import restrictions designed to mitigate the risk of ASF introduction into the United States.
