Egypt: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The National Food Safety Authority (NFSA) is continuing to expand its regulatory reach. The authority has taken full control on imports since November 15, 2019. Until now, NFSA has issued regulations reshaping the import control system in Egypt. NFSA has revised Egypt’s policy regarding veterinary drugs residue in beef and beef products. The decision is more closely aligned with Codex standards. This changes Egypt's long-standing zero-tolerance policy for ractopamine MRLs.
