On August 28, 2021, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply (MAPA) began accepting the new Export Certificate model for U.S. exports of beef, beef products, and bovine offal into Brazil. The certificate is finalized after 18 months of negotiations. MAPA also granted a 60-day transition period between old and new dairy certificates effective until October 29, 2021. During the transition period, both the old and the new certificate models will be accepted. U.S. beef exports to Brazil in 2020 totaled $1.14 million. The new Certificate model provides the needed assurances that trade will not be interrupted.
