I, the undersigned producer, hereby declare that I wish to produce animals whose meat will be eligible for export to the European Union under the provisions of the European Union's Tariff Rate Quota (EC No 593/2013).

I am aware, having read "Annex R-13, Requirements for Compliance with the European Union Tariff Rate Quota for High Quality Beef" and having consulted with my CFIA Approved Veterinarian, of the requirements placed on me as a feedlot wishing to export under this quota.

I understand that animals slaughtered under this quota must also comply with the existing requirements of the "Canadian Program for Certifying Freedom from Growth Enhancing Products (GEPs) for the Export of Beef to the EU" and that I am currently enrolled with CFIA to operate in that program.

I also hereby allow CFIA and EU Officials to obtain necessary information from my CFIA Approved Veterinarian or to provide requested information to verify compliance with the requirements.
