U.S. Trade Representative Intervenes Over Import Ban by Colombia


On June 3rd, the Government of Colombia issued a temporary worldwide prohibition on poultry imports based on HPAI. Shortly thereafter, the U.S. was excluded from the prohibition based on a regionalization agreement that has operated since 2012.


In mid-August, the Government of Colombia noted that it would initiate a risk assessment on U.S. control programs although extending a temporary waiver through November 8th.
