Subject: Chapter 11 of the Meat Hygiene Manual of Procedures - Section 11.7.3 and Annex Q – US

Canada is permitting the importation of beef meat products from certain EU Member States (MS).

Please refer to section Q.2.2 of Annex Q - US for detailed requirements applicable to determine the eligibility of imported products.

Please note that a new paragraph has been included in section on the US to highlight that specific requirements apply to imported products, and that section Q.2.2 of Annex Q - USA has been updated to specify that the current approval for meat imported from Denmark applies only to pork.

The section on US of Chapter 11 of the Meat Hygiene Manual of Procedures has been amended accordingly.


  • The changes have been made in the Meat e-Certification System.
  • Export certificates are available to the CFIA inspection staff through Read Import Country Requirements (ICR) of Meat eCert.
