CONFIRMED OUTBREAK OF HIGHLY PATHOGENIC AVIAN INFLUENZA IN THE CANADIAN PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
"Effective immediately, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has notified U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) of immediate restrictions on the importation of certain bird and poultry products and live birds from a control zone in Southern British Columbia," stated U.S. Customs and Border Protection. This restriction is due to the outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), also known as bird flu. Due to the outbreak, certain poultry products that are originating out of the control zone of British Columbia are prohibited until further notice.
A statement from the CBP:
"Travelers intending to bring food products into the U.S. from Canada are encourages to learn which products are allowed and which are prohibited before they travel."
For further information and a list of prohibited items please visit the official CBP.gov website.
Effective January 13 at all U.S. ports of entry, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will detain cotton products and tomato products produced in China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
CBP issued a Withhold Release Order (WRO) against cotton products and tomato products produced in Xinjiang based on information that reasonably indicates the use of detainee or prison labor and situations of forced labor. The agency identified the following forced labor indicators through the course of its investigation: debt bondage, restriction of movement, isolation, intimidation and threats, withholding of wages, and abusive living and working conditions.
The deployment of the Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis (AIM) system scheduled for January 25, 2021 has been delayed until March 29, 2021. The AIM system website consists of an online aluminum import license application platform and public monitoring. This delay means that licenses will not be required for covered aluminum products until the new implementation date.
The U.S. Trade Representative has determined to suspend the tariff action in the Section 301 investigation of France’s Digital Services Tax (DST). The additional tariffs on certain products of France were announced in July 2020 and were scheduled to go into effect on January 6, 2021. The U.S. Trade Representative has decided to suspend the tariffs of the ongoing investigation of similar DSTs adopted or under consideration in ten other jurisdictions. Those investigations have significantly progressed; however, have not yet reached a determination on possible trade actions. A suspension of the tariff action in the France DST investigation will promote a coordinated response in the ongoing DST investigations.
