USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD49 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Eligibility of the Republic of Korea (Korea) to Export Poultry Products to the United States  
Abstract: FSIS is amending its poultry products inspection regulations to add Korea to the list of countries eligible to export poultry products to the United States (9 CFR 381.196). Korea is not currently listed as eligible to export such products to the United States. FSIS has reviewed Korea's poultry laws, regulations, and inspection system, as implemented, and has determined that they are equivalent to the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) and its implementing regulations. Under this final rule, slaughtered poultry or parts or other products thereof processed in certified Korean establishments will be eligible for export to the United States. All such products will be subject to re-inspection at United States ports of entry by FSIS inspectors. FSIS will also conduct other types of inspection, including examination of products for defects and sampling and laboratory analysis of products' chemical residues, or for microbiological contamination. Products that pass re-inspection will be stamped with the official United States mark of inspection and allowed to enter United States commerce. If they do not meet United States requirements, they will be refused entry and must be re-exported, destroyed, or converted to animal food.
