COLOM-PEQ Selects New Officers

At last week’s annual meeting of the Colombia Poultry Export Quota Inc. (COLOM-PEQ) in Medellin, Colombia, the export trading company that administers the U.S. poultry export quota to Colombia, the board of directors elected new officers for the organization.

Seated as the new COLOM-PEQ chair for 2017-18 is Adriana Navarro of FENAVI, the Colombian poultry association. From the U.S. side, Saher Rizk, representing USAPEEC, was named vice chairman. Also, Mateo Paz Soldan of DTB Associates was appointed secretary and Violeta Gutierrez, also of DTB, was named treasurer.

ESMA revises date of production to May 31

The Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority (ESMA) last week gave its verbal assurances that shipments of U.S. poultry with a production date prior to May 31 would be allowed to enter the U.A.E., provided the product was certified as halal by a certifier previously approved by the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment.

ESMA, which was recently granted sole authority by the U.A.E. to approve halal certifiers from all countries that export to the U.A.E., earlier said that product must arrive at the port in the U.A.E. by May 31, when a list of newly audited halal certifiers administered by ESMA takes effect.

Iraq rejects system audit of U.S., insists on individual plant visits

The government of Iraq last week rejected a proposal by the Food Safety and Inspection Service to conduct a system audit of the U.S. inspection regime rather than auditing individual poultry plants.

At a meeting with U.S. government representatives last Wednesday, officials said that Iraq expects the U.S. to follow the same plant approval protocol that all other supplying countries have accepted.

And, although Iraq also granted another 90-day extension until Sept. 30 for the U.S. to comply with its audit requirements, officials warned that this extension would be the last.
