The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is amending the Siluriformes fish inspection regulations to list Viet Nam as a country eligible to export Siluriformes fish and fish products to the United States (G/SPS/N/EQV/USA/3). FSIS has reviewed Viet Nam's laws, regulations, and inspection system as implemented and has determined that Viet Nam's Siluriformes fish inspection system is equivalent to the system that the United States has established under the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) and its implementing regulations. Under this final rule, only raw Siluriformes fish and fish products produced in certified Vietnamese establishments are eligible for export to the United States. All such products are subject to reinspection at US points-of-entry by FSIS inspectors.
