Current through Register Vol. 41, No. 14, April 7, 2022

Any person desiring to import poultry, or poultry hatching eggs, into Kansas shall not be entitled to do so, unless and until he shall have first obtained a poultry importation permit from the livestock sanitary commissioner of Kansas. Such a permit shall not be required for waterfowl or for waterfowl hatching eggs imported under provision of regulation 9-9-3. An application for such a permit shall be submitted to the livestock sanitary commissioner and shall be made only on a form approved and supplied by the livestock sanitary commissioner. Such a permit shall be issued to the applicant, by the livestock sanitary commissioner of Kansas, or his duly authorized representative, when it has been determined:

(a) That the official disease control agency of the state of origin of proposed poultry and poultry hatching egg imports, has verified the pullorum-typhoid classification of the flock, hatchery or premises, from which the birds or eggs originate; and
(b) when such classification is acceptable to such Kansas official; and
(c) when such additional conditions and provisions, as the livestock sanitary commissioner had deemed essential for the protection of poultry in Kansas from infectious or contagious disease, have been satisfied. Each such permit shall state a date of expiration, as of June 30 following date of issuance.

Each container in which poultry or poultry hatching eggs are transported or shipped into Kansas shall bear an official label stating:

(a) The name and address of the consignor;
(b) the name and address of consignee;
(c) the pullorum-typhoid classification of the poultry and poultry eggs; and
(d) the number of Kansas poultry import permit.
