Environmental Health & Safety (EHS), in partnership with the Office of Research & Economic Development, is sponsoring a campus-wide Laboratory Safety Colloquium, "Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) Permits," at 10 a.m., Sept. 18 in Nebraska East Union.
The colloquium is presented by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) Plant Safeguarding Specialists.
Anyone working with and importing or transferring soil, plants, plant pests or plant pathogens should attend to learn WHEN you need a permit, WHY you need a permit and HOW to apply.
The format of this upcoming colloquium includes approximately 30 minutes for “question and answer”, so be sure to bring your questions! As with most other colloquia, this session is being recorded and will be available a few weeks after the event.
