Disposition of shipment when articles not separated or treated


If no provision is made by the inspecting official for disposition by separation or treatment, the notice provided for in ORS 570.140 (Shipment found to contain plant pest) must require that all condemned materials be promptly shipped out of the state within a specified time, the limit of which may not be less than 48 hours or more than 10 days, according to the nature of the insects or other plant pests. The owner or person in charge of the materials shall ship the materials under the direction of the officer making the inspection and at the expense of the owner or agent of the owner.


If the owner or the agent of the owner fails to comply with the notice, the articles shall be destroyed by the officer at the expense of the owner or agent. If the articles cannot be reshipped out of the state without danger of the insect or other plant pest escaping to the orchards, vineyards, farms, gardens or ornamentals and their products of Oregon, the articles shall immediately be destroyed by, or under the direction of, the inspecting official or the person who inspected the articles.
