7. PREDEPARTURE REQUIREMENTS a. The commanding officer of a ship will compty with sanitary measures prescribed by the heatth authorities in the port of departure to prevent the embarking of persons infected with a quarantinable disease or the introduction on board the ship of possible agents of infection or vectors of a quarantinable disease. The quarantinable diseases are cholera, plague, and yellow fever.

8. PROCEDURES APPLICABLE

PORTS

TO ARRIVAL AT U.S.

a Public health quarantine procedures are required for ships which, in the last 15 days prior to arrival in the U.S. or since departure from the iast U.S. port (whichever period is shorter) have or have had any passengers or crew on board with the following conditions or illness:

Oerafting and Demfting Grempfion Certlflcates. By international convention, a Deratting and Deratting Exemp­ tion Certificate Is required of ships entering most foreign ports, H detention is to be avoided. A certtfiie must be issued by a USPHS ofker or a Public Heatth Service des­ ignated mllitafy quarantine representative, The certificates are valid for 6 months. Procedures for procurement and issue of certificates are contained in BUMED and

NAVMEDCOM instructions d the 6250 series.

9. INSECT AND RODENT CONTROL ON SHIPS a. General Insect Control. Ship disinfection by approved methods wili be accomplished as required for protecting the personnel aboard from arthropod-borne diseases and for preventing the dissemination of insect pests and disease vectors. Dissection wiii ahvays be accomplished during vistts to and upon leaving ports where yellw fever, maiark+ or other arthropod-borne diseases are known to exist. Sim­ ilarly, special attention wili be directed mo dislnsection of ships proceeding from areas where yellow fever or malaria mosquitoes exist to areas where these insects do not exist.

Information on materials and methods may be found In the

Military Entomology Operational Handbook (NAVFAC MO­

310, Army TM 5-632, Air Force AFM 91=16), Bureau of

Medicine and Surgery and Naval Medical Command in­ structions of the 6250 series, and NAVMED P-50104, or may be obtained from the military or public heatth quarantine inspector in port. b. Preventing RatandFlea Infestations. Appropriate mea­ sures will be taken in piague-endemic areas to avoid rat and flea infestations. Such measures include the following:

(1) Immediately upon berthing at a pier and during the entire time a ship iies alongside a pier, it shouid be fended off al least 6 feet; gangways and other means of access to the ship wiil be guarded and weli-lighted or separated from the shore; cargo nets and similar devices extending be­ tween the ship and shore wili be raised or removed unless in actual use, and all connecting iines will be property f~ed with rat guards.

(2) The ship wiil load only cargo that has been found free from or has been treated to destroy rats and fleas.

(3) Prior to departure, the ship wili be inspected for rats

and fleas,

and measures will be taken to ensure destruc­ tion of any that are present. These same measures maybe used as protection against rat infestation in other ports, but use of ratguards is no longer mandatory at ports where no plague is reported. c. Rafguarcfs. International heatth regulations no longer require the use of ratguards by ships except when the ship is berthed in a pott where piague is endemic. However, continuing efforts to prevent entry of rodents onto the ship and sanitary measures to eiiminate food and harborage sources aboard the ship are stiil necessary, particularity in areas where large populations of rodents are known to be present. Accordin$iy, there may be instances when com­ manding officers or Medical Department representatives determine the use of ratguards to be advkable as an addi­
