USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AC11 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: Importation of Swine Hides and Skins, Bird Trophies, and Ruminant Hides and Skins 
Abstract: This rulemaking amends the regulations governing the importation of animal byproducts to require that untanned swine hides and skins from regions with African swine fever and bird trophies from regions with exotic Newcastle disease meet certain requirements or go directly to an approved establishment upon importation into the United States. It also sets out certain requirements for the importation of untanned bovine, deer, and other ruminant hides and skins into the United States from Mexico to prevent the spread of bovine babesiosis. These requirements provide for the importation of these articles under conditions intended to prevent the introduction of African swine fever, bovine babesiosis, and exotic Newcastle disease.
