The National Health, Harmlessness and Food and Agriculture Quality Service (SENASICA) of Mexico and its counterparts in USA and Canada signed a Frame of Reference to ensure an open relationship regarding the commercialisation of red meats, chicken and egg products that will guarantee a fair an transparent exchange of these products.
This document will help to guarantee that the food harmlessness measures applied in the trilateral trade of these products are based on scientific evidence.
This agreement implies the mutual acknowledgement of the Meat Products Inspection Systems of the three countries, and for Mexico this means keeping the markets for the national companies interested in consolidating their products in the USA and Canada.
The signing of this document also implies the commitment, by the meat producers and exporters, to fulfil the national regulations and that of their commercial partners in order to give the consumers a better harmlessness guarantee of the meat products that reach their table.
The Frame of Reference for the Operational Relationship between the North American health agencies has the goal of strengthening the scientific and technical trilateral relationship, as well as the ability of the institutions to deal quickly with problems that may appear regarding the trade of meat products.
