WASHINGTON – Directive 9000.2, Revision 1: Inspection and Export Certification of Livestock Intestines or Casings has been issued by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (F.S.I.S.), according to the American Meat Institute (A.M.I.).

Cancelling F.S.I.S. Directive 9000.2, Inspection and Export Certification of Livestock Intestines or Casings, this directive clarifies that F.S.I.S. does not expect imported casings that are to be certified for export with F.S.I.S. Form 9060-18 to have been derived solely from livestock that was slaughtered under an inspection system equivalent to the U.S. system.

Other key points covered include how to determine whether intestines or casings are eligible to receive the mark of inspection; what is required to certify intestines or casings for export; and what is required to certify imported intestines or casings for export.
