Risk Analysis Process

The risk analysis process examines the plant pests and diseases that are known to be associated with a commodity, identifies those pests that are likely to remain on the commodity upon importation into the United States, and evaluates the mitigations that may be required to avoid, reduce, or eliminate the risk of pest introduction into the United States. APHIS conducts risk analyses in accordance with International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures No. 11, “ Pest Risk Analysis for Quarantine Pests,” and its supplements, set by the International Plant Protection Convention.
