The Federally Recognized State Managed Phytosanitary Program

Last Modified: July 12, 2024

APHIS established the Federally Recognized State Managed Phytosanitary (FRSMP, pronounced “free-stamp”) program to promote greater consistency in actions taken against certain plant pests, whether those pests arrive at U.S. ports of entry or are moving interstate.  

By better harmonizing import and interstate requirements, APHIS strengthens its ability to advocate for safe, fair and reciprocal treatment of U.S. exports by our trading partners.
