Inedible Animal By-Products Exported from Mexico to Canada for Eventual Export to the European Union under Regulation (EC) no 1069/2009 and its Implementing Legislation

In cases where a Canadian imports inedible animal by-products from Mexico with the intention of re-exporting the derivatives to the European Union, then the Canadian importer must request that the Mexican exporter obtain appropriate certification prior to export of the by-products to Canada.

The Canadian importer should always confirm with CFIA prior to shipment which parts or statements of the European Union health certificate must be included.

Mexican authorities will include additional attestations required in the export health certificate from Mexico to Canada (CZE), the name and the EU approval number of the establishment, as well as references to EU requirements for the product
