The European Union (EU) has updated all of their harmonized health certificates in accordance with their Animal Health Law. The new export health certificates, relevant regulations, and references are posted on the EU IRegs.
The new model health certificates are available in PDF format. Please contact VS.Live.Animal.Import.Export@usda.gov to request a Word Document format.
Please continue to check back regularly for the most up-to-date information regarding live animal exports to the EU. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, the EU will continue to accept the previous versions of their harmonized animal health certificates as long as they are endorsed by August 20, 2021.
