China’s dairy plant audit requirement ends


China’s dairy plant audit requirement ends

The U.S. Dairy Export Council says a major obstacle for dairy sales to China is gone.  Starting July 1st, the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service is no longer required to audit dairy and infant formula plants in order to register them for export sales to China. 

The end of the audits is part of the phase one trade deal with China.  USDEC says the change eases the regulatory and financial burden of U.S. dairy suppliers sending products to China. 

Dairy plants wishing to export to China must still file an application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration using their Unified Registration and Listings Systems export listing module.
