Expedited Permits for Certain Widely Prevalent Regulated Organisms

Under contract from PPQ, the American Phytopathological Society has developed lists of plant pathogenic fungi, bacteria, and viruses recognized as widely prevalent within various States. These pest lists can be viewed at http://prevalentfungi.org/, http://prevalentviruses.org/, and http://prevalentbacteria.org/.

Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) periodically sends these widely prevalent pest lists with standard conditions to US states and territories, to develop the Expedited Permit list. PPQ asks these entities if they agree to have their Review on file for the listed organisms, which expedites the review of individual permit applications.

PPQ continues to work with States to increase participation in this procedure. Please check this website for updates to these lists.

The Entomological Society of America is currently considering a widely prevalent list for specific insect pests.
