tional waters of Puget Sound and the Great Lakes

(Circular No. 420. Public Health Service)

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, December 30, 1929. To Quarantine Officers, Collectors of Customs, and Others Concerned:

1. You are advised that under the provisions of articles 56 and 57 of the International Sanitary Convention signed at Paris, the 21st of June, 1926, His Majesty's Government in Canada and the Government of the United States of America have entered into an agreement to accord reciprocal recognition to quarantine pratique granted by either to vessels entering their international waters:

Vessels from foreign ports destined for both Canadian and United States ports located on the Straits of Juan de Fuca, Haro, Rosario, Georgia, Puget Sound, or their tributaries or connected waters, or so destined to ports on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, shall undergo quarantine inspection by the quarantine officers of that government having jurisdiction over the primary port of arrival, and when cleared from quarantine in accordance with the provisions of the said International Sanitary Convention shall receive free pratique, the document granting such pratique to be issued in duplicate; that the original shall be presented upon entry at the primary port of arrival, and that the duplicate shall be presented to the proper quarantine officers upon secondary arrival and entry at the first port under the jurisdiction of the other Government, and shall be accepted by that Government without the formality of quarantine reinspection, provided that cases of quarantinable disease have not been prevalent in the ports visited and have not ocourred on board the vessel since the granting of the original pratique, and provided further that the observance of the provisions of article 28 of the said convention shall not be modified by such agreement.

2. Effective January 1, 1930, vessels from foreign ports (other than those on or near the northern frontiers of the United States) which enter the international waters of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, Haro, Georgia, Rosario, and the Puget Sound, their tributaries and connected waters on the west coast, or the international waters of the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes and their tributaries and connected waters on the east coast, which are destined for both United States and Canadian ports located thereon only will be required to undergo one quarantine inspection to be performed by the quarantine officers of the respective Government having jurisdiction over the first port of arrival provided that quarantinable disease has not occurred on board since granting the original pratique and was not prevalent in such local ports visited.

3. Vessels which make a United States port their first port of arrival will undergo the prescribed quarantine inspection and treatment by the quarantine officer in that port, and when cleared from quarantine such vessels will be issued pratique in duplicate, the original copy of which will be required to be delivered to the collector of customs for entry of vessel and the duplicate copy will be retained on the vessel for presentation upon secondary arrival at the first Canadian port.

4. Vessels which have first entered a Canadian port and have received pratique in duplicate, following prescribed inspection and treatment by the Canadian quarantine officer of that port, will be permitted to enter secondarily the first United States port of call without the formality of quarantine reinspection: Provided, Such vessel presents and delivers to the collector of customs the duplicate copy of the original Canadian pratique duly approved by the United States quarantine officer of that port, together with the required American bills of health: And provided further, That since receiving such original pratique quarantinable disease has not occurred on board the vessel and was not prevalent in the local ports visited.
