HHS/CDC RIN: 0920-AA23 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Control of Communicable Diseases: Foreign and Possessions Regulations; Nonhuman Primate 
Abstract: By statute, the Secretary of Health and Human Services has broad authority to prevent introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the United States and from one State or possession into another. The Secretary has delegated the authority to prevent the introduction of diseases from foreign countries to the Director, CDC. CDC also enforces entry requirements for certain animals, etiologic agents, and vectors deemed to be of public health significance. CDC is proposing to amend its regulations related to the importation of live nonhuman primates (NHPs) by extending existing requirements for the importation of cynomolgus, African green, and rhesus monkeys to all NHPs. The agency also is proposing to reduce the frequency at which importers of the three species are required to renew their registrations, (from every 180 days to every two years). CDC proposes to incorporate existing guidelines into the regulations and add new provisions to address NHPs imported as part of a circus or trained animal act, NHPs imported by zoological societies, the transfer of NHPs from approved laboratories, and non-live imported NHP products. CDC is also proposing that all NHPs be imported only through ports of entry where a CDC quarantine station is located.
