GMO Testing for Export to China
China currently requires some animal products be tested to verify the absence of animal species and/or microbial pathogens. Genetic ID is an approved laboratory for testing of processed animal products and fish meal for export to China. Our Technical Advisors will provide a cost-effective, relevant testing plan to facilitate market access.
- USDA-APHIS-approved laboratory - China currently prohibits import of ruminant-containing processed animal products that can be used as pet food or animal feed ingredients. Processed animal products include poultry meal, rendered poultry fat, porcine meal, lard, spray-dried porcine blood products, and porcine protein concentrate. Genetic ID is a USDA-AHPHIS-approved laboratory for ruminant testing of processed animal products for export to China.
- USDC recognized laboratory- Beginning January 2012, China has required additional testing for imported fish meal to verify the absence of microbial pathogens such as Salmonella and Enterobactericeae. Genetic ID is recognized by the United States Department of Commerce to perform such testing. Therefore, laboratory results from Genetic ID can be used by the National Seafood Inspection Laboratory NOAA Seafood Inspection Program to determine compliance with requirements of the People’s Republic of China for fish meal exported from the USA.
