Revised certification process for U.S. meat and poultry imports to Canada

     Meat processing plant

Effective February 1, 2017 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will no longer require the signature of a USDA Veterinarian Medical Officer on the Certificate for Export of Meat and Poultry Products – the new form will still require the Export Certification signature of a USDA officer, however, this may be any officer handling the file. 

For more information, contact Brian Rowe, General Manager – Customs Consulting Services.

Quick Tip #58
Be prepared for customs penalties and fines under AMPS

Never assume that the absence of an audit means you will never be audited.  Penalties under AMPS (Administrative Monetary Penalty System) can be applied at the border at time of import (or export) and also post audit.
