International Animal Product Export Regulations



If you have any questions or concerns regarding these regulations for exporting animals or animal products to a foreign country, you should contact the APHIS-VS Area Office in the State from which the animals or products will be exported.

Chapter 3(C) Health Certificate for Dog Chews

The European Union defines "dog chews" as products for pet animals to chew, produced from untanned hides and skins of ungulates or from other materials of animal-origin. Therefore, use of the Chapter 3(C) Health Certificate is not limited to only chews for dogs.

Please select the appropriate certificate below based upon the animal-origin ingredients included in the pet chews:

Hides/skins of ungulates


Fish and hides/skins of ungulates

Meat/Organs of terrestrial animals (not just hides/skins of ungulates)



Dairy and egg

Meat/Organs of terrestrial animals (not just hides/skins of ungulates) and fish

Meat/Organs of terrestrial animals (not just hides/skins of ungulates) and fish, plus dairy and/or egg
