Washington, D.C., September 23, 2021 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the implementation of Phase VI of the Lacey Act enforcement schedule. Effective October 1, 2021, Phase VI will require a plant import declaration for additional products such as essential oils and wooden pallets that are imported into the United States.

To view the notice and the harmonized tariff codes that are included in Phase VI, go to http://www.regulations.gov, and enter APHIS-2008-0119-0329 in the search field. The new harmonized tariff codes will be available on the Lacey Act website on October 1, 2021, which also has information on how to file a Lacey Act declaration.
