Dairy Exports to the European Union, China, and Chile

U.S. exporters of dairy products to the European Union, China, and Chile are subject to importing country listing requirements for manufacturers/processors as a precondition for market access. Please note that the scope of products for which importing authorities impose listing requirements may differ from FDA's definition of “milk product” as established in 21 CFR 1240.3(j). You may wish to consult the regulatory authorities in the country to which you intend to export to determine whether your products are subject to listing requirements.

Industry may apply for inclusion on these lists via the Export Listing Module (ELM). Please visit Online Applications for Export Lists for a link to this electronic system and step-by-step instructions. More information on specific country requirements is included below.

Industry may request export certificates produced by listed manufacturers/processors from the United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Marketing Service, Dairy Grading Branch (Dairy Grading Branch).
