USDA COMPLETES THIRD AND FINAL LICENSE ISSUANCE

On March 7, 2007, the U.S. Department of Agricultureís Foreign Agricultural Service completed the third and final license issuance for 2007 either by listing of licenses on the DAIRIES web page or by mailing a license printout to the licensee. Members may have noticed that the DAIRIES list or the license printout may include additional licenses not listed in either of the previous two issuances due to the following reasons: (1) technical corrections that resulted in reissuance of certain licenses for 2007; (2) canceled non-historical licenses; and (iii) conversion of canceled historical licenses to non- historical licenses.

Members are reminded that the license fee for 2007 is $150.00 per license. The license fee must be paid by no later than May 1, 2007. It can be paid either by using the DAIRIES secured link to the U.S. Treasury or by check made payable to the order of the Treasurer of the United States, postmarked not later than the May 1st deadline, addressed to the Dairy Import Licensing Group at the following address:

Dairy Import Licensing Group
STOP 1021 ROOM 5531-S
14 Independence Avenue, S.W.
Washington, DC 20250-1021

Failure to submit payment of the license fee by May 1, 2007, may result in your firmís licenses being placed on hold, or being revoked. Any questions which you may have regarding the third and final 2007 license issuance or payment of the license fee should be directed to either Bettyann Gonzales at (202) 720-1344 or Jorge Martinez at (202) 720-9439.
