Canadian and Hawaiian Participants
Current Canadian regulations require that Canadian laboratories obtain
import permits to import animal and human pathogens. This regulation applies
to CAP Surveys that contain hazardous material. It is important that you
obtain permits from the Health and Welfare Canada for all infectious Surveys
and a second permit from the Canadian Department of Agriculture for the
D, D1, D2, D3, D4, E, E1, and ID Surveys. A copy of a valid permit must
be sent to the CAP for attachment to each shipment containing hazardous
Surveys. Surveys will not ship without required documentation.
The state of Hawaii also requires import permits. You may obtain an
import permit by contacting the Plant Quarantine Branch of the State of
Hawaii Department of Agriculture. You will need to complete form PQ-7
