It is required by law to have an active compliance agreement if your business transports CRB host material or CRB host palms. Businesses in the following categories must complete compliance agreements which define requirements for safer transport of this material.
Green waste recyclers, hot composters, transfer facilities.
Truckers, roll-off divisions, waste removers
Commerical landscapers, tree trimmers, arborists
Plant nurseries, tree farms, garden suppliers
Hawaiʻi Department of Agriculture (HDOA) issued an Interim Rule to minimize the risk of spreading CRB and other invasive pests. Compliance agreements are signed by businesses that work with CRB host palms and materials to continue operating with decreased risk of causing new CRB infestation.
STEPS TO COMPLIANCE:
Submit your signed agreement to HDOA via the CRB Response (pages 1, 2, and 19 must be filled out). Email copies to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to 1849 Auiki St, Honolulu HI, 96819.
Once HDOA approves and signs the compliance agreement, you will be emailed a final copy. Save this copy for your records. Active compliance agreements are required for all businesses who transport CRB Host Material or CRB Host Palms.
