CSF status of the Mexican state of Nayarit
The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA
are proposing to amend the regulations for importing animals and animal products
by adding the Mexican State of Nayarit to the list of regions considered free of
classical swine fever (CSF).
This proposed action is at the request of the Mexican
Government and the State of Nayarit, following a risk evaluation indicating that
Nayarit is free of the disease. They are also proposing to add Nayarit to the
list of CSF
regions whose exports of live pigs, pork and pork products to the US must meet
certain certification requirements to ensure their freedom from CSF.
These actions would relieve certain CSF-related
restrictions on the import to the US of pork, pork products, live pigs and pig
semen from Nayarit while continuing to protect against the introduction of this
disease into the US.
