A notice on the final rule posted at the website of Federal Register contains a summary that reads the "Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is amending the Federal poultry products inspection regulations to add the People's Republic of China (PRC) as eligible to export to the United States poultry products from birds slaughtered in the PRC."
It made China eligible to engage in such poultry trade with the United States, following clearances for Canada, Mexico and Chile, said a GAC spokesperson.
The confirmation by the U.S. authority will have positive effects on China's export of poultry products to the United States, said the spokesperson.
Previously, China's inspection system for poultry products from birds slaughtered passed the document review and on-site audits of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. ■
