Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service's (APHIS) new rule on the importation of beef from Argentina. GAO noted that: (1) the rule would allow, under certain conditions, the importation of fresh, chilled, or frozen beef from Argentina; (2) APHIS states that the change is in keeping with provisions of trade agreements recently entered into by the United States as it removes unnecessary restrictions on such importation; (3) APHIS will require certification by Argentine officials that a number of mitigating measures have been taken before the beef is made available for importation into the United States; and (4) APHIS complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
