For more than 40 years, Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ)—a USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service program—has safeguarded the health and marketability of U.S. agriculture and natural resources from destructive pests. But our role goes beyond the eradication of pests that enter the United States and the management of those that become established. Today, we also play a critical role in making sure that billions of dollars of agricultural commodities are traded safely, without artificially moving pests through commerce.
Our work spans a wide spectrum of activities—from offshore programs, rulemaking, permitting, port and border inspections, pest identification and mitigation, and smuggling interdiction and trade compliance to pest detection, response, and pest management and eradication programs.
We also work to create a fair and predictable trade system for U.S. agricultural products by promoting science-based international and regional trade standards and eliminating unfair or unjustified trade barriers that would limit U.S. access to foreign markets. In addition, we help U.S. exporters meet the plant health requirements of importing countries.
