USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE77 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: ●Amendments to Import Requirements for Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza 

Several sections of APHIS’s import regulations specify that live birds and other avian commodities may not be exposed to highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) or sourced from premises quarantined for HPAI within the 90 days immediately preceding export to the United States. We are proposing a notice-based process to propose to lower this period to a time period that aligns with World Organization for Animal Health standards for considering a region affected with HPAI following an outbreak. We would propose this reduction for foreign regions that we have evaluated and determined merit such a reduction.
