This report lists the major export certificates required by the Chinese government for imports of food and agricultural products. After a fourteen year hiatus, in 2017, China reopened its market and issued new procedures allowing U.S. beef imports. In November 2017, China also reopened the market for U.S. live horses. Although proposed, no significant changes in Chinese export certificate requirements occurred in 2017.
