New import conditions for livestock exports from Namibia to South Africa

South Africa notifies the World Trade Organisation (WHO) Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary (SPS) committee regarding the implementation of new import conditions for livestock exports from Namibia to South Africa. These conditions do not differ much from the conditions as proposed in April 2015 that were released for public comment. Should they be implemented, the export of Namibian animals will be subjected to very strict tests for animal health.<br> The Animal Health Consultation Forum will convene on Tuesday to discuss any prospective actions. All comments on the notice to the WHO’s SPS Committee must be handed in by 9 January 2016, while the proposed date for the implementation of the new conditions is 9 May 2016.

Meat Board approves new conditions for livestock exports to South Africa

The Meat Board approved three new conditions for the export of livestock to South Africa. These conditions were set to give further insurance and to ensure that the export of Namibian animals comply with the South African policy for livestock imports, namely that Namibian animals may not come into contact with South African animals, except at the time of slaughtering.
These conditions entail the abolishing of the prerequisite that the export destination must belong to the South African Feedlot Association or the South African Abattoir Association, and is replaced by the condition that the export destination must have a proved trace ability system. A further condition was set that will prevent Namibian livestock from being exported to an intermediary destination first, except where that destination forms an integral part of the final destination and has a proved trace ability to the final destination. The Conditions and Standard Operational Procedures can be obtained from the Meat Board on its web site.
