The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued Directive 9000.2, Revision 1: Inspection and Export Certification of Livestock Intestines or Casings.
This directive, which cancels FSIS Directive 9000.2, Inspection and Export Certification of Livestock Intestines or Casings, clarifies that FSIS does not expect imported casings that are to be certified for export with FSIS Form 9060-18 to have been derived solely from livestock that was slaughtered under an inspection system equivalent to the U.S. system.
Other key points covered include:
- how to determine whether intestines or casings are eligible to receive the mark of inspection;
- what is required to certify intestines or casings for export; and
- what is required to certify imported intestines or casings for export.
