If the approved irradiation treatment is applied outside the United States, each consignment of fruit must be precleared by APHIS inspectors in Colombia. Treatment must occur in a pestexclusionary treatment facility or, if irradiation is to be applied upon arrival in the United States, each consignment of fruit must be inspected by the NPPO prior to departure and accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by the NPPO. Mangos intended to be irradiated in the United States must be shipped in APHIS-approved packaging that prevents escape of any Anastrepha spp. or Medfly larvae or adults. • All hot water or irradiation treatment facilities in Colombia to be used for mangos are subject to APHIS approval. APHIS reserves the right to require oversight visits in the event of pest interceptions or other problems. • Mango fruit must be safeguarded from exposure to Anastrepha spp. or Medfly from the time of treatment to export. The package containing mango fruit may not contain any other fruit, including mango fruit not qualified for importation into the United States. • Each consignment must be inspected jointly by inspectors from APHIS and the NPPO and accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by the NPPO. • If more than one Ceratitis capitata or Anastrepha spp. or one Neosilba glaberrima is detected in a consignment, the consignment may not be exported to the United States. • Each consignment is subject to inspection at the U.S. ports of entry. In addition to these specific measures, fresh mango fruit from Colombia would be subject to the general requirements listed in § 319.56–3 that are applicable to the importation of all fruits and vegetables. Therefore, in accordance with § 319.56–4(c), we are announcing the availability of our PRA and RMD for public review and comment.

The term ‘‘prepackaged for sale’’ means that, at a minimum, the steel vertical supports (i.e., uprights and posts) and steel horizontal supports (i.e., beams, braces) necessary to assemble a completed shelving unit (with or without decks) are packaged together for ultimate purchase by the end-user.
