31 January 2020
Based on the latest risk assessments, China’s General Administration of Customs and Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs jointly announced on 19 December 2019 the lifting of a ban in relation to the 2010 outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in Japan (Announcement No. 200 ).
Cloven-hoofed animals and animal products from Japan meeting the specified requirements may now be imported into China once again. A joint announcement made by the former General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine and the former Ministry of Agriculture (Announcement No. 45 ) was repealed on the same day.
