Plants Eligible to Export Meat (Siluriformes Only) to the United States 

Product Categorization
FSIS has published an updated Product Categorization guide. Foreign exporters and governments can now find species that are now under FSIS jurisdiction (Siluriformes fish).

In accordance with the FSIS rule published on December 2, 2015 (80 FR, 75590), the following countries have submitted documentation to FSIS showing that they have laws or other legal measures in place that provide the authority to regulate the growing and processing of Siluriformes fish for human food, and that will ensure compliance with the Food and Drug Administration's regulatory requirements in 21 CFR part 123, Fish and Fishery Products.  Files are provided in PDF format.

By the end of the 18-month transitional period, September 1, 2017, foreign countries seeking to continue exporting such products to the United States must submit adequate documentation showing the equivalence of their Siluriformes inspection systems with that of the United States. Starting August 2, 2017, imported Siluriformes fish and fish products from these countries must be presented for reinspection to FSIS.
