General Requirements
====================
According to the Venezuelan harmonized tariff schedule, imports of
food and agricultural products are subject to a list of requirements
given by its “tariff regime” (in Spanish: regimen legal). The
requirements include: sanitary certificates, import permits, import
licenses and product registration.
The Government of Venezuela (GOV) is responsible, through its
different ministries, for issuing import permits, import licenses and
product registration. The Ministry of Agriculture and Lands (MAT)
issues import permits; the Ministry of Food (MINAL) issues import
licenses and all domestic; and imported processed food products must
be registered through the Ministry of Health and Social Development
(MSDS). Foods not registered in the country of origin cannot be
registered in Venezuela.
The GOV requires a “sanitary certificate” from the country of origin.
Specific sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) statements (treatment and
other conditions) are required for each type of product and are
determined by the authorities on a case-by-case basis.

SECTION II. Purpose of Specific Export Certificates
===================================================
1.
Animal Products and Unprocessed Plant Products
----------------------------------------------
Through the Agricultural Health Service (in Spanish: Servicio Autnomo
de Sanidad Agropecuaria or SASA), the Ministry of Agriculture and Land
(MAT) is responsible for quality control and inspection in respect to
everything related to the manufacture, processing, importation,
exportation, storage, distribution and marketing of food, biological
products, medications and animal feed, as well as for the laboratories
that control the quality of these products. SASA is equivalent to
APHIS.
This agency is in charge of issuing phytosanitary or sanitary health
import permits for imported products and sub products of plant or
animal origin, and animals and plant breeding material. The guidelines
provided by SASA are the following:
*
Prior to importing animal products and/or unprocessed plant
products, importers should request and obtain a sanitary health
(SPS) import permit from SASA.
*
Specific SPS statements (treatment and other conditions) for each
type of product are determined by SASA on a case-by-case basis.
*
Specific SPS statements are written on the import permit issued by
SASA.
*
The “remarks” section of the export certificate on a FSIS or APHIS
letterhead certificate should include the specific SPS statements,
and should be written both in English and Spanish.
*
An APHIS veterinarian or equivalent FSIS official must sign the
export certificate.
*
No product should be loaded in a vessel before the import permit
is received and the sanitary statements required in it are written
on the USDA export certificate.
*
SASA’s import permits have a non-renewable period of validity of
between 60 and 90 days, depending on the product:
*
Sanitary health import permits are issued for animal products
and livestock-farming inputs (validy of 60 days).
*
Phytosanitary import permits are issued for plant products
(validity of 90 days).
*
Import permits are only useful for one shipment.
*
Every shipment must be accompanied of an import permit and its
corresponding APHIS or FSIS export certificate.
Import Licenses. Import licenses are valid for four months, and can
only be renewed if, on expiry, they have not been used for reasons
outside the importer’s control. When applying for a license,
established importers are supposed to submit a monthly list of imports
actually realized, indicating volume and value, together with the
invoice on the most recent import, also indicating the volume and
value of the merchandise in question. The importer must indicate the
amount of the allocated quota that remains unused, which in some cases
is reincorporated into the quota to be reassigned. The following is
the list of products that are subject to import licenses:
Yellow corn
Sorghum
Soya beans
Palm nuts and kernels
Soya bean oil
Other oils
Palm oil
Sunflowerseed oil
Coconut oil
Other vegetable fats and oils
Soya bean cake
Animal and vegetable fats
Degras, yellow grease
Milk and cream, not concentrated
Milk in powder, not exceeding 1.5% fat
Whole milk 26%
Cheese
2.
Processed Animal Products
-------------------------
An FSIS certificate must accompany each shipment of meat and poultry
and/or products. Venezuela accepts imports from all FSIS approved
plants. Below are the certificate requirements of the Venezuelan
Government and currently included in the FSIS export certificate
library. As noted above for unprocessed plant products, importers are
required to have an import permit before importing meat and poultry
products. All Federally inspected meat and poultry plants are eligible
to export to Venezuela.

2.
The following statements must be included in the "Remarks"
section of FSIS Form 9060-5:
a.
The meat was derived from animals that were born and raised in
the United States or Canada;
b.
The meat was received from slaughter and processing of
clinically healthy swine, which originated from premises and
localities free from infectious animal diseases, including
swine vesicular disease and African swine fever; and
c.
The meat comes from establishments or pork herds submitted
under official control, in which in the last 24 months,
trichinosis cases have not been detected or the product was
submitted to freezing according to USDA 9 CFR 318.10 (c)(2),
which guarantees the destruction of the parasite.
Note (for information-this is not a required statement): The term
"infectious animal diseases" means that, at the time of slaughter, the
animals were not under official quarantine or any other State or
Federal restriction due to disease and passed ante mortem and
postmortem inspection.
3.
In addition to the above statements which are required for pork
meat, exporters or their agents must provide the following
certification on company letterhead:
a.
The meat is shipped in refrigerated containers that guarantee
its temperature; and
b.
The containers were washed and disinfected using products
approved by the exporting country.
Note: This certificate is not signed by FSIS personnel. However, it
must include the MP number from the FSIS 9060-5 for identification
with a particular shipment.
C.
Cooked poultry products - Obtain FSIS Form 9060-5 Export
Certificate of Wholesomeness. The following statements must be
included in the "Remarks" section of FSIS Form 9060-5:
"Cooked poultry product was cooked, reaching an internal
temperature of not less than 68° C (155° F)."
D.
Animal Casings - Obtain FSIS form 9060-18, Animal Casings Export
Certificate for Countries Requiring Ante-Mortem, Post-Mortem, and
Sound and Clean Statements
E.
The importer must obtain a health import permit from the Ministry
of Agriculture and Lands’ Animal Health and Industry
Administration.
3.
Processed Food Products
-----------------------
All domestic and imported processed food products must be registered
with the Government of Venezuela, through its Ministry of Health and
Social Development (MSDS). Foods not registered in the country of
origin cannot be registered in Venezuela. With the exception of
special cases, such as Government or military sales as determined by
the MSDS, all new-to-market foreign food products must be submitted
for registration before being imported.
The MSDS through its Food Hygiene Division supervises food safety,
much as FDA does in the United States. The registration of the
processed food product is valid for five years. After five years, an
application may be made to MSDS without cost for renewal of the
registration.
No specific certificate from the exporting country is required at the
time of entering Venezuelan ports, if the product has been already
registered with MSDS.
Free Sale certificates. The Venezuelan Harmonized Tariff Schedule does
not mention “Free Sale Certificates.” Venezuelan custom (SENIAT)
authorities do not accept this document because it is not included in
Venezuelan legislation.
This has caused problems to exporters of U.S. processed food as the
free sale certificate consists of a statement that the products are
freely sold in the United States, and it is not customarily issued by
the local, state or federal agencies.
But, SASA has a long history of accepting “Free Sale Certificates”
from third countries, based on common sense and its scientific
knowledge. Free sale certificates issued by state departments are not
accepted, as SASA deals only with its equivalent authority, which in
this case is APHIS.
4.
Wood Packing Material
---------------------
All wood packaging materials arriving into Venezuela must to carry the
agreed international seals certifying that the wood has been treated
as recommended by the international conventions after August 01, 2005.
The set of regulations is to comply with the “Guidelines for
Regulating Wood Packaging Material in International Trade” under the
International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).
SECTION III. Specific Attestation Required on the Export Certificate
====================================================================
Specific sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) statements (treatment and
other conditions) are required for each type of product and are
determined by SASA’s authorities on a case-by-case basis.
SECTION IV. Government Certificate’s legal entry requirements
=============================================================
*
Original Sanitary Certificates from the country of origin need to
accompany the product at the time of entry.
*
Sanitary Certificates from the country of origin are only accepted
for one shipment and one specified port of entry.
*
The GOV does not accept “Suppliers or Manufacturers Export
Declaration” as proof of compliance.
*
For processed food products no specific certificate from the
exporting country is required at the time of entering Venezuelan
ports, if the product has been already registered with MSDS.
*
The GOV does not accept U.S. State issued sanitary export
certificates.
SECTION V. Other certification / accreditation requirements
===========================================================
The Government of Venezuelan (GOV) provides information about import
requirements through its harmonized tariff schedule (in Spanish:
Arancel de Aduanas). Recently, the GOV published a new harmonized
tariff schedule, with an effective date of implementation as of August
01, 2005.
The most significant changes to Venezuela’s tariff schedule refer to
the codification (numbering or listing) of import requirements that
already existed. The import requirements are the following (“Regimen
