Burma – New Pest Risk Analysis Requirements

A new Myanmar pest risk analysis (PRA) requirement went into effect on January 1, 2017, which requires

exporters to address questions contained in a Myanmar government questionnaire. The PRA

information must be submitted by the designated National Plant Protection Organization, thus, exporters are

recommended to work with the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and their importers

to ensure they comply with the new requirements prior to exporting to Myanmar.

The new requirement affects market access for new plant products as well as historically traded commodities

. It does not affect processed products.   more here
