USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AD44 Publication ID: Spring 2018 
Title: Lacey Act Implementation Plan: De Minimis Exception 
Abstract:

The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 amended the Lacey Act to provide, among other things, that importers submit a declaration at the time of importation for certain plants and plant products. The declaration requirements of the Lacey Act became effective on December 15, 2008, and enforcement of those requirements is being phased in. We are proposing to establish an exception to the declaration requirement for products containing a minimal amount of plant materials.
