Disinfection Ruling Introduced on EU Bound Cattle

14 June 2013

ARGENTINA – Shipments of live cattle bound for the European Union will require certification following the verification of the Single Certificate of Washing and Disinfection, a hygiene measure for live animal transport.

The rule is logged under resolution number 238/2013 and is set to eventually extend to all live cattle exports, according to the National Health Service for Food Safety and Quality.

Under the rulings, cattle exporters will have to complete the requirements laid out on transport applications that stipulate the appropriate measures for disinfection of transport wagons.
