Canada reported that the issue of Hungary's restrictions on pork products had been resolved.
Date reported as resolved:
Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports
Canada reported that as of January 2001, Hungarian importers of pork products from Canada had not been able to obtain import certificates from Hungary's veterinary services. A similar disruption had occurred the previous year, and had been resolved through bilateral discussion. Canada asked Hungary to resume issuing import permits, or to provide a legitimate scientific justification for the measure. Hungary referred to fears over BSE transmission and cross-contamination of foodstuffs, and was willing to enter into bilateral consultations on the matter. Canada requested clarification on the relevance of feed cross-contamination to the importation of frozen pork.
In September 2004, Canada reported that the issue of Hungary's restrictions on pork products had been resolved.
