    • Description:
      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Import Permit Program (IPP) regulates the importation of infectious biological materials that could cause disease in humans in order to prevent their introduction and spread into the United States. The Import Regulations for Infectious Biological Agents, Infectious Substances, and Vectors (42 CFR 71.54) require that anyone wanting to import infectious biological agents, infectious substances, or vectors must first obtain a permit issued by CDC. Since 2018, IPP has used an electronic IPP (eIPP) information system to process applications and issue permits.

      This document is intended to assist eIPP information system users when completing applications for permits to import infectious biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors. Note: This document does not cover applications for permits to import live bats or human remains.

      Applicants are required to have a Secure Access Management Services (SAMS) account to access the eIPP information system. See the “Using eIPP” section of the IPP website for more information on SAMS accounts. Users access the eIPP information system by logging in at https://eipp.cdc.gov or through SAMS at https://SAMS.cdc.gov. Once an applicant has logged in, they may apply for permits for importing infectious agents or materials, live bats, or human remains using the three options found at the top left of their landing page.
