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
