On June 15, the General Administration of Customs and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs announced No. 70 and No. 71 of 2023 that China Customs lifted the ban on deboned beef under 30 months in Poland and Belgium respectively.

 

On the same day, according to the General Administration of Customs and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Announcement No. 72 of 2023, the ban on pig vesicular disease epidemics in some areas (central and southern) of Italy was lifted.

 

In March 2001, due to the outbreak of mad cow disease in Poland and Belgium, China issued a notice prohibiting the import of beef from these two countries. After a lapse of 22 years, experts from GACC conducted on-the-spot inspections and concluded that the BSE prevention and control systems of the two countries met China’s relevant quarantine and health requirements, and decided to lift the ban.

 

Since the first half of the year, due to animal disease outbreaks, many changes have taken place in meat exporting countries and enterprises to China. China Customs' new updates for market access of countries and enterprises for poultry and beef not only ensures the stability of import supply source for Chinese traders, but also enriches food choices of Chinese consumers.

 

It is worth reminding that foreign exporters need to pay close attention to the impact of animal epidemics on the export market to China. Up to now, outbreaks of bird flu (HPAI) and mad cow disease (BSE) have affected overseas meat exporting countries to varying degrees, such as suspension and resumption, market conditions, port customs clearance, etc., so as to avoid export obstructions and unqualified determination and rejections after arriving at ports.

 

The below picture is a summary of GACC updates of overseas meat countries or regions in Jun, more information is included in our monthly report, if you're interested in reading reports, please contact us.
