  Solid Wood Packing Material from China, Federal Register: 63 FR 50100, 9/18/98   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
APHIS estimates that between 50 to 95 percent of shipments of electrical machinery, sports equipment, and machinery contain some type of SWPM, while 30 percent or less of furniture and optical/medical instruments are packaged with SWPM.12 In general, clothing articles, textiles, and food and agricultural items are not likely to be shipped with SWPM.
APHIS is concerned that any increase in methyl bromide use as a result of this interim rule does not cause long-lasting damage to the ozone layer.
APHIS also emphasizes that this is an interim measure that will remain in effect for only as long as it takes to develop a more effective solution to the problem--a pest problem that could, if not addressed, result in substantial environmental damage to the forests and ecosystems of the United States.

 CRS Report: RS20401 - Agricultural Quarantine: Congress Debates Reform of Plant Protection AuthoritiesAgricultural ...
APHIS policymakers, some Members of Congress, and other observers, have argued for several years that these statutes are outmoded and conflicting and that they complicate APHIS' ability to safeguard agriculture in the context of new international trade obligations and rapidly commercializing technologies, such as biocontrol.
Four bills to modernize APHIS statutes are being considered in the 106th Congress (H.R. 910 and S. The principal differences among these bills concern the issue of federal versus state preemption, and the degree to which APHIS should expand its plant protection authority, currently focused on agriculture, to include the protection of natural ecosystems.
APHIS officials also pointed out that Congress could not have foreseen important future technologies such as biological controls and genetically engineered crops when it passed the original plant quarantine laws.

APHIS also recognizes that market forces will affect producer involvement (e.g., some establishments may begin to accept only animals that are identified under the national system).

 APHIS Asking For Authority to Increase Tissue Sampling in Packing Plants - 12/6 meatingplace.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The proposal would grant APHIS the authority to require packinghouses to provide access to all blood and tissue samples APHIS needed for disease surveillance.
APHIS also is proposing that anyone moving livestock or poultry interstate for slaughter may move the animals only to a packing plant approved by the APHIS administrator, "approved establishments" being plants that provide the space and facilities needed to collect blood and tissue samples.
Some industry observers feel the proposed rule could allow APHIS to collect blood and tissue samples for any disease and significantly broaden the agency's responsibility for identifying and addressing emerging diseases.

In December 2000, APHIS expanded its prohibitions on imports of rendered ruminant protein products from BSE-restricted regions to include rendered protein products of any animal species because of concern that cattle feed supposedly free of ruminant protein may have been cross contaminated with the BSE agent.
APHIS, FSIS, and FDA have taken additional steps to specifically address the potential pathways or practices that the Harvard-Tuskegee Study said could contribute most either to the spread of BSE in cattle or to human exposure to the BSE agent should BSE be introduced into the United States.
