Specific information by country and/or product category

Bilateral certificates

Bilateral certificates are generally the result of negotiations between the FASFC or the European Commission and the competent authority of the third country. They contain sanitary conditions with which the animal feed must comply before the certificate can be issued by the FASFC's local control unit and the products can be exported to the third country.

The sanitary conditions of third countries can differ strongly from those of Belgian and European legislation. The operator must check that the products they wish to export comply with the sanitary requirements specified in the country-specific certificate of the country of destination.

Under the bilateral certificates, two groups are distinguished:

  • Belgian bilateral certificates: these certificates result from negotiations between the FASFC and the third country;
  • EU (TRACES) bilateral certificates: these certificates result from negotiations between the European Commission and the third country.
