IP Grams

IP (Import Permit) Grams are an electronic communication used to disseminate information to U.S. import permit holders.  IPP uses these to distribute important programmatic updates to this group.

If anyone in the general public would like to receive IPP information, IPP offers a newsletter subscription. This allows website visitors to subscribe to receive email based on their interest in the program.  To sign up, please see the “Get Email Updates” box on the left-hand side of this webpage.

The CDC Import Permit Program (IPP) is pleased to announce the publication of a new guidance document entitled Guidance on Completing Applications to Import Infectious Biological Agents, Infectious Substances, and Vectors [PDF – 1 MB].

This document is intended to assist electronic IPP (eIPP) information system users when completing applications for permits to import infectious biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors into the United States.

You can find the new guidance in the eIPP Resource Center.
