Checking the Country Requirements
When issuing health certificates for meat and poultry products, FSIS personnel should review the latest information published for that country's requirements. Countries are changing their import requirements to include additional certification statements.
While a grace period is generally provided, some countries will implement a new requirement immediately. It is important to check the country requirements each time a health certificate is issued or ask the exporter to provide a copy of the latest version. This may save time and reduce the number of "replacement certificates" that would be required at a later time.
