Lacey Act: Compliance Issues Related to Importing Plants and Plant Products
Pervaze A. Sheikh (au)
The Lacey Act regulates the trade of wildlife and plants and creates penalties for a broad spectrum of violations. In 2008, the Lacey Act was amended to include protections for foreign plants and to require adherence to foreign laws as they pertain to certain conservation and other activities involving plants. Further, the 2008 amendments make it unlawful to submit falsified documents related to any plant or plant product covered by the act, and to import certain plants and plant products without an import declaration. The primary drivers behind the Lacey Act amendments of 2008 (2008 amendments) were to reduce illegal logging globally and increase the value of U.S. wood exports. A highly publicized raid on Gibson Guitar Corp. brought to light several existing policy issues related to the 2008 amendments to the Lacey Act. Contents of this report: Introduction;Summary of Policy Issues Associated with the 2008 Amendments; Implementation of the 2008 Amendments; Issues and Legislative Options; Concluding Remarks. Figure. This is a print on demand report.
