*ALERT: PENDING CHANGES IN EXPORT REQUIREMENTS FOR PET FOODS*
Effective July 1, 2015, non-bovinae pet foods/treats manufactured by Non-Bovinae Facilities must be certified for export to Canada by APHIS. Initially, this will be done on the basis of a notarized affidavit and supporting documentation. Between July 1, 2015 and July 1, 2016, all pet food facilities desiring to continue to export shelf-stable, heat-processed pet foods/treats to Canada must be inspected and approved by APHIS. See “Pet Foods – NON-Bovinae Facilities” below for general and specific information on notarized affidavits for Canada.
