On August 30, 2021, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply (MAPA) published the new Dairy Certificate model for U.S. exports 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 from the date of publication. During the transition period, both the old and the new certificate models will be accepted. U.S. dairy exports to Brazil in 2020 totaled $45 million. The new Certificate model provides the needed assurances that trade will not be interrupted.
