Bovine meat and bovine meat products, and food containing such products
Food Notice: Requirements for Registered Food Importers and Imported Food for Sale.
This Food Notice specifies requirements for New Zealand registered importers and imported food for sale. Parts 5 and 6 of the Food Notice contains the import requirements for specified foods that require clearance for entry into New Zealand. The requirements for imported food covered in Part 5 are unchanged from current requirements.
New Zealand MPI is seeking comments on Part 6 of the Food Notice, which contains the import requirements for bovine meat and bovine meat products, and food containing such products. The contents of Part 6 were transferred from an MPI operational document into the proposed Food Notice, and they largely reflect how the rules are currently implemented. The list of countries eligible to export bovine meat and meat products to New Zealand and the corresponding conditions for imports from these countries are unchanged, except for the following:
a) changes in the clearance requirements for products from Australia; and
b) addition of Uruguay to the list. Further explanations can be found in the discussion paper provided.
