What is the USDA’s new ACIR database?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has implemented a new requirements database for the import of agricultural products.

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced on July 14, 2022 the launch of their new database called “Agricultural Commodity Import Requirements” (ACIR). The benefits promised by APHIS with this new database include:

  • A user-friendly search tool for commodity imports information
  • Relevant import requirements for a commodity in one place
  • Self-service responses for entry requirement questions

ACIR aims to supply users a one-stop shop to search and retrieve any, and all entry requirement information, inspections procedures, treatment schedules, etc. On September 30th, websites used in the past will redirect you to the ACIR page.

If you would like more information about USDA requirements and other import compliance questions, please contact Allyn International at
