The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is amending the Federal poultry products inspection regulations to add China as eligible to export to the United States poultry products from birds slaughtered in China (G/SPS/N/EQV/USA/4). FSIS has reviewed China's poultry laws, regulations, and inspection system, as implemented, and has determined that they are equivalent to the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA), the regulations implementing this statute, and the United States' food safety system for poultry. Under this final rule, slaughtered poultry, or parts or other products thereof, processed in certified Chinese establishments, are eligible for export to the United States. All such products are subject to reinspection at United States ports of entry by FSIS inspectors.
