Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Title: Fishery Products Subject to Trade Restrictions Pursuant to Certification Under the High Seas Driftnet Fishing Moratorium Protection Act or the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

Pursuant to the High Seas Driftnet Fishing Moratorium Protection Act (Moratorium Protection Act) or the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), if certain fish or fish products of a nation are subject to import prohibitions to facilitate enforcement, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) requires that other fish or fish products from that nation that are not subject to the import prohibitions must be accompanied by certification of admissibility. A duly authorized official/agent of the applicant's Government must certify that the fish being imported into the U.S. are of a species that are not subject to an import restriction of the U.S. If a nation is identified under the Moratorium Protection Act and fails to receive a certification decision from the Secretary of Commerce, products from that nation that are not subject to the import prohibitions must be accompanied by certification of admissibility. Likewise, if a nation does not receive a comparability finding for a fishery under the MMPA, products from that nation that are not subject to the import prohibitions must be accompanied by the certification of admissibility
