To streamline the declaration process for importers who typically file paper declarations, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)’s Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) released a new website called the Lacey Act Web Governance System (LAWGS, pronounced “logs”).  This site makes filing Lacey Act Declarations (PPQ Form 505) easier and faster.

To learn more about LAWGS and whether the online tool is suitable for your business, please visit the APHIS FAQ section.
