The products identified in the table below are eligible for export from Vietnam to the United States as determined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Equivalence Process.

Vietnam has been allowed to export Siluriformes fish and fish products to the United States under the conditions described in the proposed rule (83 FR 47528). On November 5, 2019, FSIS published a final rule to list Vietnam in the regulations as eligible to export Siluriformes fish and fish products to the United States.

Raw source materials used to produce product intended for export to the United States must originate from a certified establishment in an eligible country that has an equivalent raw products inspection system.

These are the Process Categories, Product Categories, and Product Groups as listed in the FSIS Product Categorization document and defined in the Public Health Information System (PHIS).

  • For raw Siluriformes products, the Order Siluriformes includes the following Families: Ictaluridae (Catfish), Clariidae, Pangasius, and others.  For guidance on acceptable common or usual names, see Siluriformes Fish Species List.
