Abstract The Animal Product Manual (APM) provides the background, procedures, and regulatory actions to enforce the regulations governing the import and export of animals, animal products, and animal by-products. These regulations attempt to reduce the risk of introducing exotic animal diseases into the United States and facilitate the exportation of animal products. The primary purpose of the APM is to enable Customs and Border Protection Agriculture Specialists (CBP-AS) at ports of entry to do the following for animal products offered for importation: Identify and classify the importation; Determine if any entry requirements are to be met; Identify and validate the accompanying documents; and Take final regulatory action. The secondary purpose of the APM is to enable Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) Officers to do the following for animal products and non-animal products offered for export: Identify which non-animal products PPQ is authorized to certify; and Refer animal products to the government agency responsible for regulating importations of animal products.
