Inedible Animal By-Products Exported from the US to Canada for the Manufacture of Pet Food (in Canada) for Export to Ukraine

In cases where a Canadian imports inedible animal by-products from the United States that are intended to be used in the manufacture of pet food for export to Ukraine, then the Canadian importer must request that the US exporter obtain appropriate certification prior to export of the by-products to Canada.

The Canadian importer should always confirm with CFIA prior to shipment that the endorsed certificate meets all necessary requirements.

The following certifications are required on a VS Form 16-4.

Additional certification required for raw material (meat, meat by-products, offals, etc.):

  • The raw material originate from animals which showed no signs of anthrax during ante-mortem and post-mortem inspections; and
  • The raw material come from establishments which were not placed under official quarantine on account of anthrax control
