Mandatory Use of Most Recent Version of CFIA/ACIA 4159 for Meat Exports to China

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has been informed that an older version of form CFIA/ACIA 4159 “Certificate of Inspection Covering Meat and Poultry Meat Products – for China” is being used by some operators/exporters.

It is imperative that only the most recent version 1.8 of form CFIA/ACIA 4159 be used for the export of meat and meat products to China.  This form is available in the Forms Catalogue on Merlin.

Please ensure that the printed copies of export certificates have the correct Chinese characters. If you have any questions, please use the established communication pathways.
