Regulations and Requirements

In addition to helping U.S. exporters navigate an array of regulations governing trade in food and agricultural products, FAS works to ensure that those regulations are predictable, transparent, and science-based.

FAS maintains an online system to to inform the U.S. agricultural industry regarding changes in international food and agriculture regulations that could affect U.S. exports.

FAS also provides access to a database that lists maximum acceptable levels of pesticides and veterinary drugs in food and agricultural products in the United States, as well as 70 other countries, the European Union and the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

Additional information about regulations and requirements governing agricultural exports and imports is available from other agencies.
