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 VS Field Office covering the area from which the products will be exported (or the area in which your office is located).

Animal Products to Hungary

Hungary is a member state of the European Union. The European Union has harmonized import requirements for certain animal origin products. For harmonized protocols (for commodities not listed below) please refer to the general information file for the European Union.

Language Requirement for Certificates
Hungary generally requires certificates to be in Hungarian (which means APHIS certificates would have to be in Hungarian and English). However, some Hungarian border inspection posts (BIPs) may be willing to accept English certificates. In other cases, the Hungarian BIP may be willing to accept the English certificate if an official translation (created by a licensed translator in Hungary) is attached. Exporters should have their importers confirm with the pertinent BIP prior to shipment if English certificates are acceptable, and if not if an English translation accompanied by an official translation would be acceptable. In cases where the BIP requires the official certificate to be in Hungarian, the exporter can work with their importer to create a truly bilingual version of the certificate prior to presentation to APHIS for endorsement.
