Livestock products

Proposed Amendments to the Regulation on Declaration and Inspection for Imported Livestock Products. Language(s): Korean. Number of pages: 20

The main proposed amendments are as follows:

-         regulating detailed procedures, such as the contents of the notification from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) and the time frames of the submission of the result of the cause investigation and corrective actions from an exporting country in the cases where MFDS requests the government of the exporting country to make corrections on a foreign establishment in which hazard has been found at the border inspections in Korea, stipulating necessary measures taken by MFDS if the exporting country does not provide requested information or its corrective actions are not appropriate;

-         increasing the frequency of an on-site inspection up to five consecutive times for the same livestock products from the same establishment when non-compliance in total consignment is identified at the on-site inspection;

-        expanding the range of information to be disclosed, such as inspection items when standards and specifications are newly established or reinforced.
