Obtaining an EU approval for importation of beef by a Latin American country

SAFOSO conducted a first assessment in a Latin American country of their opportunities to export beef to the European Union. Importation by a third country is only possible when the country can demonstrate full compliance with EU requirements regarding animal health and food safety standards, traceability, use of hormones in beef production and absence of residues of unwanted substances.

SAFOSO assessed the current status of the country, the status of the national animal health and food safety system and the status of potential exporting companies. Recommendations for future steps towards obtaining the EU import approval were given based on the findings of the assessment.
