China: Update to the Export Process for US Pork and Pork Products

03.04.2020 15:30 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) Following are selected highlights from a report issued by a U.S.Department of Agriculture attache in The Beijing (China — Peoples Republic of), in accordance with the U.S.-China Economic and Trade Agreement (ETA), China has implemented a number of changes to the scope and process of exporting U.S. pork and pork products to China. Key changes include facility registration, an expanded scope of products, and use of the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) Public Health Information System (PHIS) for transmitting export certification documents. This report is intended to be a general guide for U.S. exporters and is intended to complement the regulatory requirements found in the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).

Executive Summary

All federally inspected establishments interested in exporting pork and pork products to China must be approved by FSIS, then added to Chinas General Administration of Customs (GACC) website. U.S. facilities can export pork and pork products that are slaughtered and further processed after the facility has been added to the GACC website. In accordance with the ETA, China has acknowledged the expanded scope of market access for pork and pork products. China agreed to accept all FSIS-inspected pork and pork products, with a list of ineligible products referenced in Chapter 3 Appendix I of the ETA. This list of ineligible items can also be found on the FSIS Export Library. As of March 21, 2020, all shipments of U.S. pork and pork products to China will be notified to China Customs using the PHIS system. Paper certificates will no longer be issued for China-bound shipments. Please see the FSIS Export Library for specific information about PHIS implementation. While China has not removed the additional tariffs that have been levied on U.S. pork and pork products since 2018, China opened a new round of tariff exclusions on March 2, 2020. Almost all U.S. pork and pork products are listed in the official announcement as eligible for an exclusion from the retaliatory Section 301 tariffs. The 232 tariffs levied on pork in April 2018 are not eligible for exclusion at this time. Notably, tariff exclusions will only be granted to individual importers and will not automatically apply to all pork imports. Chinese importers have already reported applying for, receiving, and using the tariff exclusions to import U.S. pork without the additional Section 301 tariffs being assessed on the product.
