    4. If a lot tests positive using the screening test, all product from the lot is either diverted for another use or a testable portion of the same sample is sent to an AMS-approved laboratory for confirmatory LC/MS testing which is listed on the AMS' website, AMS Export Laboratory Approval Program, found under "Business Listing of USDA-approved methods for Export." The laboratory confirmatory test must show a negative result for products from the lot to be certified for export to China

As of March 1, 2015, replacement (in-lieu-of) certificates can no longer be issued for exports to The People’s Republic of China.

  1. Export Certification Verification

    For shipments that have been certified by an FSIS Public Health Veterinarian (PHV) prior to April 19, 2018, and have not cleared Chinese Port-of-Entry Procedures, FSIS has created a process to verify each export certification.

    An exporter that wishes FSIS to verify their export shipment shall send an electronic copy of the export certificates to China.Exports@fsis.usda.gov.  In the body of the email, include the port of entry in China for each certificate submitted. FSIS will verify the authenticity of each certificate and verify the information through the process outlined in Section B and include the port of entry in China for each certificate provided by the exporter for these submissions.

    A PDF copy of the signed certificates (FSIS Form 9060-5, FSIS Form 9295-1 and applicable letterhead) must be submitted by the exporter as one bundle package per shipment, meaning all forms should be included in the same PDF scan and include the port of entry in China for each certificate. E-mail submissions must follow the EXACT format shown below, otherwise the certificates will not be processed and resubmission will be required:
    1. Format for the subject line of the email: "<Choose one: In Port:/Arriving Soon:/Arriving Later:><Enter unique “MPK or later Six-Digit Export Certificate Number> <Enter Establishment Number where the certificate was issued>". Example: Arriving Soon: MPK-XXXXXX EST XXXX.
    2. The attachment file name must use the following naming format: "[Arriving Soon MPK-XXXXXX  EST XXXX or appropriate certificate number].pdf".

  2. Pre-notification of Export Certificates [Effective April 19, 2018]

    China's Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine (AQSIQ), requires advance electronic notification of all FSIS-regulated commodity shipments. It is the responsibility of the exporter, or their designated agent, such as the exporting establishment, to ensure that proper notification is provided. This pre-notification system will serve as an interim measure until the PHIS export module for China is implemented.

    The required certificates for prior notification is the FSIS Form 9060-5, FSIS Form 9295-1 and applicable letterhead.  After the paperwork has been signed, the FSIS PHV will scan and send the documents via e-mail to  ChinaExportCertificate@fsis.usda.gov.

    A PDF copy of the signed certificates (FSIS Form 9060-5, FSIS Form 9295-1 and applicable letterhead) must be submitted by the FSIS PHV as one bundle package per shipment. Meaning all appropriate species forms should be included in the same PDF scan. E-mail submissions must follow the EXACT format shown below, otherwise the certificates will not be processed and resubmission will be required:
    1. Format for the subject line of the email: "<Enter unique “MPK or later Six-Digit Export Certificate Number> <Enter Establishment Number where the certificate was issued>". Example: MPK-XXXXXX EST XXXX.
    2. Each email must contain only one PDF-formatted attachment of the signed certificates.
    3. The attachment file name must use the following naming format: "[MPK-XXXXXX  EST XXXX or appropriate certificate number].pdf". This name must be the same as the name in the subject line of the email.

      FSIS will be responsible for sending notification to AQSIQ through an established AQSIQ e-mail account.

      For Airline shipments: Indicate in the body of the email that the product is shipping via an air flight.

      Note: Pre-notification requirement does not apply to natural casings.

      Note: Product weight on certificates should be shown in kilograms and pounds to avoid excessive delays at the port.
       

    4. As of April 19, 2018, China requires that the port of entry in China be typed in the “Remarks” of FSIS Form 9060-5 for all species of products exported. Exporters work with their importing agents to identify appropriate ports. *
  3. Additional Information to be Collected on Export Certificates
    1. The number of the ocean vessel container.
    2. The number of the shipper's commercial seal (Not a USDA seal) applied to the container
    3. The port of entry in China.
    4. The Ocean/Air Cargo Container Number(s) and Seal Number(s) must be indicated in the blocks on the FSIS Form 9295-1 (1/12/2004).
    5. The seal number and port of entry in China must also appear in the “remarks” of the FSIS Form 9060.5.
    6. If the container number, seal number(s), and port of entry in China are known at the time that the product is certified for export, the exporter should indicate the information in block 14 on FSIS 9060-6, Application for Export Certificate.
    7. If the container number, seal number(s), and/or port of entry in China are NOT known at the time that the product is certified for export:
      1. The applicant completes FSIS form 9060-6, Application for Export to include all required information, and in block 14, enters the company name, contact person, address, and phone number of the company that will load and seal the container.
      2. FSIS will then provide FSIS Form 9060-5, FSIS Form 9295-1 and applicable letterhead to the applicant to allow product to be stamped with the export stamp, perform export inspection, permit completion of all certificates and allow shipment of the product without signing FSIS Form 9060-6.
      3. The unsigned certificates are to be secured in government files by CSI. When the container number(s), seal number(s) and/or port of entry in China are obtained, CSIs are to verify that seal and container numbers are in block 14 of FSIS Form 9060-6 and as appropriate in the blocks on the FSIS Form 9295-1 (1/12/2004). The port of entry in China and the seal number is to  be added to the “remarks” of FSIS Form 9060-5 for beef and pork meat certificates.
      4. The applicant then requests signature of the completed FSIS Form 9060-6 by the same FSIS inspection office that provided export inspection. CSIs are then to place the signed FSIS Form 9060-6, unsigned FSIS Forms 9060-5, the corresponding FSIS Form 9295-1 (1/12/2004) and applicable letterheads in an envelope that they are to seal, sign and date (FSIS Directive 8010.3, Procedures for Evidence Collection, Safeguarding and Disposal) for couriering to the PHVs for signature. CSIs are to also record the date and time they sealed the envelope next to the recording of the certificate number when they log it.*
      5. The PHV is to receive the stated forms for signature in a sealed envelope, signed by CSIs. If the seal is broken when the PHV receives it, the PHV is to withhold his or her signature and report to his or her supervisory chain of command.
    8. If additional space is needed in the "Ocean/Air Cargo Container Number(s)" block in the case of multiple containers certified with a single certificate, an FSIS letterhead certificate indicating the container and seal numbers should be issued. The letterhead certificate should also indicate the certificate number, the date of the certificate, and the signature of the same veterinarian signing the FSIS 9060-5,  FSIS 9295-1 and applicable letterhead certificate.

      If a continuation sheet is needed for Form 9060-5, use FSIS Form 9060-5A. FSIS Form 9295-1 does not have a continuation sheet therefore multiple forms should be used if needed

      FSIS Form 9295-1 is a watermarked form and must be ordered from the FSIS Field Supply Center. Photocopies of this form must not be used to certify product intended for China.
