Saint Lucia: St. Lucia Lifts BSE-related Restrictions on U.S. Beef

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On February 16, 2015, the St. Lucia Veterinary Service granted full market access to U.S. beef and beef products, ending 12 years of restrictions in place since the U.S. reported its first case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). These restrictions required USDA to implement an Export Verification (EV) program for St. Lucia which significantly limited the meat options and U.S. suppliers available to the market. With such restrictions now removed, the U.S. is positioned to greatly expand the St. Lucian market beyond the current $3 million level. USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service Export Library reflect St. Lucia’s updated import requirements.
