Changes to import requirements for poultry from the European Union

Home News Changes to import requirements for poultry from the European Union

On July 1, 2022, new import requirements for raw fresh/ frozen poultry products and by-products from the European Union (EU) will come into effect.

This affects both edible and inedible products, and will harmonize import requirements  with the EU for products imported from countries with outbreaks of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI).

Additional animal health attestations in regards to HPAI will now be required for all shipments  of raw fresh/frozen poultry meat and poultry products from EU member states affected by HPAI.

Any shipments certified on or after July 1, 2022 must be accompanied by the updated attestation requirement.

There will be a transition period of two months (until September 1, 2022) during which product will be accepted for import using either the previous or new conditions.

For more information, please consult the published Notice to Industry

If you have any questions about these changes, please contact the Animal Products and By-products Import inbox at APABPImport@inspection.gc.ca .

For routine inquiries, your local CFIA office remains your first point of contact.
