Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports
In June 2010, Brazil raised concerns regarding Senegal's import restriction on poultry meat in place since 2005. Brazil, while recognizing Senegal's right to protect itself against diseases, recalled the OIE guideline that a Member could establish measures if avian influenza was detected. Brazil stated that its products fulfilled all international requirements and that avian influenza had not been reported in its territory. Brazil had provided Senegal with all the information needed for a risk analysis, and had asked in March and May 2010 for scientific justification of Senegal's import restrictions. Brazil concluded that it was looking forward to receiving technical feedback to allow the export of Brazilian poultry meat to Senegal.
Senegal stated that the Senegalese authorities had only received Brazil's request a few days prior to the Committee meeting, and that a reply would be provided to Brazil as soon as possible.
ECOWAS reported that at a meeting in Cape Verde, ECOWAS members had held high level discussions on the issue. ECOWAS hoped that the issue would be resolved amicably.
