All shipments of nonhuman primate (NHP) derived products require a CDC import permit or documentation affirming that the products have been rendered non-infectious. On April 16, 2013, CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) updated the Foreign Quarantine Regulations (42 CFR part 71.53 “Requirements for importers of nonhuman primates). The updated regulations tighten the requirements for companies importing, handling and working with NHP and clarify the rules for importing NHP-derived products.
The newly created section 71.53(t) “Nonhuman primate products” states that only NHP-derived products that have been rendered noninfectious using one of the following methods approved by CDC will not require a permit:

CDC has made it clear that simply stating that the NHP product(s) is non-infectious or was obtained from healthy NHP is not enough to exempt the shipment from requiring a permit. Therefore, shipments of NHP-derived products (e.g., blood and tissue samples, etc.) must be accompanied by a CDC import permit or statement on the invoice or additional documentation describing the method (from the list above) that was used to render the product non-infectious.

Sample Statements:

Or if a permit is required;

Please note that in addition to the CDC’s requirements, the conditions of other government agencies must also be met. For example, a CITES document and a USDA statement or permit, as applicable, is required for each shipment of NHP derived products.
