IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE PROCEDURES FOR OBTAINING EU CERTIFICATES

Effective June 17, 2009, FDA will no longer issue EU Export Certificates for fish and fishery products, including certificates for live/raw molluscan shellfish.

In the FEDERAL REGISTER of February 11, 2009, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the availability of a guidance document entitled "Guidance for Industry: Referral Program from the Food and Drug Administration to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Seafood Inspection Program for the Certification of Fish and Fishery Products for Export to the European Union and the European Free Trade Association." The guidance provides information for seafood processors and other entities that are interested in obtaining export certificates for fish or fishery products that are to be shipped to the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). FDA also announced that it intends to stop issuing EU Export Certificates after June 17, 2009.
