*APHIS has declared these regions to be free of swine vesicular disease; however, the importation of pork or pork products from these regions into the United States is subject to restrictions specified in 9 CFR 94.13 because one or more of the following conditions apply:

  1. The region supplements their national pork supply by the importation of fresh (chilled or frozen) meat of animals from regions where swine vesicular disease is considered to exist;

  2. The region has a common border with regions where swine vesicular disease is considered to exist;

  3. The region imports or have trade practices that are less restrictive than are acceptable to the United States.
