The Phase One of the Economic and Trade Agreement signed by the United States and China on January 15, 2020, provides U.S. companies exporting certain animal feeds, such as feed additives, premixes and compound feed, with streamlined processes for Chinese registration and licensing to facilitate U.S. exports of animal food to China.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will submit to the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC) a list of animal feed facilities from which China intends to allow imports of feed additives, premixes, or compound feed.
The facilities that want to be considered for inclusion on the list of approved U.S. facilities that the FDA will provide to China should send the below-required information to AskCVM@fda.hhs.gov, no later than April 3:
- Email subject line: (Your Company’s Name): Facility Data for Export to China
- Permission statement (such as): I, (Your Name, Company Name, Company Title), grant permission to the FDA to share with the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC), the name and address of the registered animal food facilities I have designated below, to facilitate access to the Chinese animal food market, as described in Annex 12 of the Economic and Trade Agreement between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the People’s Republic of China, from Jan. 15, 2020.
- Individual facility data: For each registered facility you wish to include on the list, provide the facility name, street address, city, state and zip code. (Note: Information provided will be verified against the data in the FDA’s FURLS registration database before being included in the list for China.)
Manufacturers of dried distillers grains (DDG) and dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) that are interested in exporting to China should contact USDA’s Export Verification Program, EV.Export@usda.gov.
