China resumes US beef imports

CHINA has resumed importing US beef, fulfilling its pledge on the US-China 100-day action plan to boost bilateral economic ties.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, announced on its website that eligible US beef has been allowed to enter China since Tuesday. It is the first such move since 2003.

The Chinese authority published relevant quality and quarantine details. The age of the beef cattle should be less than 30 months. Beef importers should be registered at the Certification and Accreditation Administration of China.

Beef destined for China must be sourced from cattle that were born, raised and slaughtered in the United States, or cattle that were imported from Canada and Mexico before being slaughtered in the US.
