(A) Except as provided in paragraph (B) of this rule, "regulated articles" are prohibited entry into Ohio from any "regulated area" unless each lot or shipment is accompanied by a certificate signed by an authorized agricultural inspection official of the state of origin, affirming that the regulated articles accompanied thereby have originated in and are shipped from a non-infested site or location within his state or county, or that the regulated articles have been treated under official supervision prior to shipment in a manner and by a method which will insure freedom from the living pest. A certificate of movement for mechanized used farm equipment shall only be issued after all soil has been removed through the use of steam under pressure.
(B) Regulated articles may enter the state of Ohio without an accompanying certificate as described in paragraph (A) of this rule if:
(1) The chief of the division of plant healthof the Ohio department of agriculture issues a special permit for movement to a specified destination for limited handling, utilization, processing, or treatment;
(2) Such articles are from a non-infested portion of a regulated state provided that state has adopted and is enforcing a quarantine or regulation which imposes restrictions on the intrastate movement of the regulated articles which, for all intents and purposes, are substantially the same as those imposed by this rule.
