Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

The Lacey Act combats trafficking in illegal wildlife, fish, and plants. Under this statute it is unlawful to import certain plants and plant products without an import declaration.
On August 6, 2015, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) added twenty wood products, such as casks, barrels, barrelheads, tableware and kitchenware to APHIS' Schedule of Enforcement for the Lacey Act Plant and Plant Product Declaration requirement. Importations of product types listed under the Schedule of Enforcement are subject to the Lacey Act Plant and Plant Product Declaration (PPQ Form 505) requirement. Failure to file a declaration for the listed product types containing plant material may result in civil or criminal penalties and forfeiture of shipments.
