B. Phytosanitary Certificate SENASA, the Peruvian Sanitary and Phytosanitary agency within the Ministry of Agriculture, requires a Phytosanitary Certificate to ensure that import requirements are met in order to control the risk of pests and diseases entering Peru. Certificates are issued by the sanitary authority of the exporting country. C. Zoosanitary Certificate SENASA requests the Zoosanitary Certificate to prevent access to animals, or their by-products, with sanitary problems in order to protect local animal health and to ensure food safety. The sanitary certificate, submitted by the sanitary authority of the exporting country, must comply with local import requirements. Section III. Specific Attestations Required on Export Certificate(s) A. Certificate of Free Trade and Use DIGESA does not require a specific attestation or format. Certificate must be issued by the sanitary authority. Certificates issued by agencies that are not on this list can be admitted with prior consultation with DIGESA. A. Phytosanitary Certificate The phytosanitary certificate should be issued using the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) form PPQ 577 and has to be signed and stamped by the corresponding APHIS officer. Specific attestations for phytosanitary import certificates are included in Appendix I. A. Zoosanitary Certificate The export certificate must meet all of Peru?s import requirements and be both signed and stamped by a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) official.

Government Certificate?s Legal Entry Requirements A. Certificate of Free Trade and Use This certificate must be submitted to DIGESA, including the list of products that apply to the Food and Beverages Sanitary Registration (RSA), according to Law No. 26842 of July 20, 1997. Food and beverages for trade need the RSA for Customs clearance. The certificate must not be older than one year from the date of issue. For more information on the Sanitary Registration, refer to our FAIRS Country Report 2011. B. Health Certificates Before the product is shipped, the importer must request an import permit from SENASA. The application is available at www.senasa.gob.pe. The import permit is valid for 90 calendar days from the date of issue for one shipment and can be extended for a 90-day period. Any form of amendment or change will invalidate the permit. SENASA can suspend or annul the requirements if the presence of pests or animal diseases in the exporting country is confirmed during the process of importation. The exporter will provide the importer with the relevant official health certificate of the country of origin including the specific certification requirements of the import permit (see Appendix I). The original certificate must be presented to SENASA for Customs clearance. For more information on import procedures, please refer to FAIRS Country Report 2011. B.1. Zoosanitary Certificate On June 27, 2007 SENASA established a new Peruvian Animal Health regulation through directorial resolution 12-2007- AG-SENASA-DSA. Import requirements are elaborated from risk analysis based on regulations established by the Andean Community (CAN) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) and consider the recommendations of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), Codex Alimentarius, and the sanitary conditions of the exporting country. This regulation considers five risk categories for animal and animal products: Risk 1: Products or sub-products of animal origin, that were elaborated through physical and chemical processes that, jointly with the final product, do not allow pathogenic agents for animal or human health risk. Neither an import zoosanitary permission (IZP), nor an export sanitary certificate is required to enter the country. Risk 2: Animal products or sub-products that were elaborated through physical and chemical processes that diminish the transport of pathogenic agents against human or animal health. Original export sanitary certificate is required. This must be according to the specific zoosanitary requirements. IPZ is not necessary. Risk 3: Animal products or sub-products whose production process does not guarantee the destruction of pathogenic agents for human or animal health. Original export sanitary certificate is required, as is IPZ. Risk 4: Primary products of animal origin. Original export sanitary certificate is required as is IPZ. Risk 5: Animals, sub products of animal origin, and reproductive material considered a high risk for pathogenic agents. Original export sanitary certificate is required as is IPZ. All the products considered in Risk levels 2 to 5 must be inspected by SENASA. SENASA will inspect products from Risk level 1 if they are considered relevant. Procedure to Import Animals or Animal Products: The importer requests the zoosanitary import permit through SENASA. The exporter in the country of origin submits the Zoosanitary Certificate following the import permit requirements. SENASA reviews the documentation at Peru?s Customs Quarantine Stations. All products are subject to inspection at Peru?s Customs Quarantine Stations. SENASA requests further observation of the product at the Post of Quarantine if indicated in the product import permit. SENASA issues the Certificate of internal transport for Customs clearance. B.2. Phytosanitary Certificate According to the Plant Quarantine regulation (Supreme Decree No. 032-2003-AG) of August 24, 2003, plant and plant products under Risk Categories (CRF) 2 to 5 require the phytosanitary import permit issued by SENASA. CRF is the phytosanitary risk classification based on the product?s level of processing and its commercial purpose.

Other Certification/Accreditation Requirements Sanitary Registration This registration is issued by DIGESA to ensure food safety. For more information on this registration and on the import certificate for registered food and beverages, please refer to FAIRS Country Report 2011. Appendix I. Electronic Copy or Outline of Each Export Certificate A. Animal and Animal Products A.1. Alpacas and Llamas The animals must be accompanied by a U.S. Origin Health Certificate (VS Form 17- 140) in English and Spanish issued by a veterinarian so authorized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and endorsed by a Veterinary Services (VS) veterinarian. The certificate must contain the name and address of the consignor and the consignee, and complete identification including number, species, breed, and sex of the animals be exported. Additional certification must include: Certification Statements The animals were born or raised in the United States or have at least remained there during six months prior to the date of shipment. The United States is free from foot-and-mouth disease, East Coast fever, Rift Valley fever, trypanosomiasis, and contagious bovine pleuropneumonia. The feeding of ruminants with ruminant meat and bone meal and greaves is forbidden the United States. The animals to be exported remained in isolation, at the farm or establishment of origin for one hundred and twenty (120) days prior to exportation. The farm or establishment of origin and adjacent farms have not been under quarantine during one year due to the presence of any of the following diseases: paratuberculosis, brucellosis (Brucella abortus and B. melitensis), tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis), vesicular stomatitis, hemorrhagic septicemia, bluetongue, trypanosomiasis, vibriosis (campylobacteriosis), trichomoniasis, rabies, BSE/scrapie, Alpaca fever, and enterotoxemia. The animals have been individually identified with microchips. The animals that will be exported have not been vaccinated against brucellosis. The animals originate from farms or establishment in which during the last five (5) years prior to exportation there were no cases of brucellosis reported. During the one hundred and twenty (120) days of isolation the animals were subjected to two diagnostic tests for brucellosis (Brucella abortus) with the complement fixation test or ELISA at 45 and 90 days prior to export. The state of origin is officially free of bovine tuberculosis. The animals have been under isolation for a period of 120 days prior to shipment at a facility that is officially authorized and under official supervision and isolated from other animals of a lesser sanitary condition. The vehicles to transport the animals were washed and disinfected prior to loading of the animal or animals using products that are authorized by the exporting country. Testing Requirements During the isolation period the animals tested negative for the following diagnosis tests: Bovine brucellosis: Two negative tests: Complement fixation or ELISA at 45 and 90 days of isolation. Paratuberculosis: One negative fecal culture test for each animal to be exported. The herd infection status must be established by the culturing of pooled fecal samples of a significant statistical sampling of adults in the herd (greater than one year of age). The pooling of samples by the laboratory (5 per pool) will be allowed to obtain a representative sample. Bovine tuberculosis: Intradermal testing on the neck with PPD bovine tuberculin, one negative test. Vesicular stomatitis: Complement fixation or ELISA, one negative test. Bluetongue: Agar immunodiffusion test (AGID) test or ELISA, one negative test. Epizootic hemorrhagic disease of cervids: AGID, one negative test. Treatments Leptospirosis: The animal/s must be treated with two injections of oxytetracycline at a dose of 25 milligrams per kilo of live weight at intervals of 14 days; the second treatment must be given within two days of shipment. Within fifteen days prior to shipment the animals must receive treatment against internal and external parasites using products authorized by the exporting country. Vaccination Black leg/ Malignant edema: The animal or animals have been vaccinated with a product containing Clostridium chauvoei and C. septicum between 30 and 15 days prior to date of shipment. Embarkation Certification At the port of embarkation, a Veterinary Services (VS) port veterinarian must attach to the U.S. Origin Health Certificate, the certificate of Inspection of Export Animals (VS Form 17-37) with the following information. The name and address of the consignor. The name and address of the consignee. The number, category, and breed of animals to be shipped. A statement that the animals have been given a careful veterinary inspection at the port of embarkation and found to be healthy and free from evidence of communicable disease, tumors, fresh wounds or wounds in the process of healing, and ectoparasites within 24 hours prior to exportation. Other Information The plane, ship or any other means of international transportation does not foresee the transshipment of the animals to another country. Paragraph Please note that Peru requires specific certification statements and results obtained during the quarantine for that particular shipment and not a transcript of the health requirements. SELECTING ALPACA FOR SAMPLE TESTS - LARGE HERDS ONLY SELECCIONANDO ALPACA PARAS LAS PRUEBAS- SOLAMENTE HATOS GRANDES This table was taken from the Australian Johne?s Disease Market Assurance Program for Alpacas. The alpaca to be tested in the herd must be selected by the following procedure. Calculate the total number of alpaca 12 months and older From the table below determine the sample required from a herd of that size/ The alpaca to be sampled should be selected by an unbiased method except that the number of males and females sampled should be in proportion to the total males and females in the herd. Number of alpaca 12 months and older to be sampled from a herd to provide a 95% confidence of detecting infection, at a prevalence of at least 2%, assuming an average sensitivity of 50% for the fecal test. A.2. Bovine Frozen Embryos The embryos must be accompanied by a U.S. Origin Animal Health Certificate, in English and Spanish, issued by a veterinarian authorized by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and endorsed by a VS veterinarian. The certificate shall contain the name and address of the consignor and the consignee, name and address of the farm providing the donor cows, name and address of the embryo collection unit (ECU) or portable unit (PU), date of embryo collection, and identification of the donor cows and bulls. Additional information must include: Certification Statements The United States is free from foot-and-mouth disease, rinderpest, Akabane, Rift Valley fever, contagious bovine pleuropneumonia, and lumpy skin disease. The State of origin of the donor animals has been free of vesicular stomatitis, brucellosis (B. abortus), tuberculosis, and tripanosomiasis during the last 12 months prior to the exportation of the embryos. (Make one choice) The embryo collection unit [ECU] or portable unit [PU] is officially inspected by USDA and complies with OIE standards. (Make one choice). In the [ECU] or [PU] there has not been any contagious or transmissible animal disease affecting the species detected in the 60 days prior to or 30 days after embryo collection (Make one choice). The [ECU] or [PU] complies with the procedures established the International Embryo Transfer Society (IETS) to recognize the embryos as free of brucellosis, bluetongue, enzootic bovine leukosis, bovine virus diarrhea, infectious bovine rhinotracheitis/infectious pustular vulvovaginitis, and vesicular stomatitis (Make one choice). The semen used for the production of embryos proceeds from an artificial insemination center that complies with the minimum requirements for control of diseases transmitted by artificial insemination according to the standards of the [World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) or equivalent] or [Certified Semen Services (CSS)]. Imported semen when used comes from a country recognized by the United States as having equal or better sanitary conditions. The donor cow was born and has remained in the United States for the last 6 months prior to the collection of the embryos to be exported to Peru. The donor cows were clinically examined by an accredited veterinarian who found them in good health and free of signs of disease (Make one choice). The donor cows were tested with negative results for the following disease within the 60 days prior to the collection of the embryos: Bovine tuberculosis: Intradermal test using bovine PPD. Prior to freezing, the embryos were examined under the microscope with 50X magnification to determine that the zona pellucida was intact and free from any adherent material. The embryos were washed according to the recommendations of the IETS after 10 washings in sterile media, using sterile micropipettes for each washing. The embryos were transferred in groups of 10 or less. Each washing of the embryos constituted a dilution of 1/100 of the previous washing; during washings, the embryos were softly agitated and only embryos from the same donor were washed in the same media. In addition, the embryos were treated with trypsin following the recommendations in the manual of IETS. All equipment and materials used in processing the embryos were sterilized. Aseptic techniques were used during processing of the embryos. Only embryos not having more than 8 days of collected were processed. All animals in the farm of origin were clinically healthy during and after the collection of the embryos. The embryos were collected and processed in a recognized laboratory, following procedures approved by USDA which are equivalent to those of the IETS and OIE. The collection and processing of the embryos was done under the supervision of a USDA-accredited veterinarian, following the guidelines of the IETS. In the laboratory the sterile and non-sterile zones of processing are clearly separated. The collection, processing and storage of the embryos were made following the recommendations by EITS to inhibit the transfer of pathogenic and infecting agents to the embryo or the receptor animal, optimizing at the same time the viability of the embryo. During the processing of the embryos, the ECU and the Processing laboratory were not in quarantine areas by transmissible diseases or species. The embryos were processed and stored only with other embryos that met the health requirements of Peru. Following the recommendations of IETS, antibiotics were added to the media for the collection, washing, and storage of the embryos. The straws and straw tapers or canes were stored in an approved place under the supervision of the embryo transfer expert (Make one choice). The thermo or embryo container [is new] or [has been cleaned and disinfected using a 10% formalin solution]. Only fresh liquid nitrogen was used. Prior to removal from storage to be placed in the container, the embryos were identified and the container was sealed by a USDA accredited veterinarian. Other Information In order to import into Peru, an import permit issued prior to exportation is required. This permit is valid for 90 days and one import shipment. A.3. Bovine Semen The Health Certificate must be issued by USDA and endorsed by a Veterinary Services (VS) veterinarian. It shall contain the name and address of both the consignor and consignee and complete identification of the semen to be exported. Certification Statements The United States is free from foot-and-mouth disease, rinderpest, Rift valley fever and akabane. The following certifications must be provided concerning Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE): In the United States, the feeding of ruminants with ruminant protein has been banned for at least six years. There is an active surveillance system for BSE supported by a clinical diagnostic service and a laboratory examination for all suspected animals, in accordance with Annex 3.8.4 Terrestrial Animal Health Code of the World Organization for Animal Health - OIE, regarding to surveillance and follow-up with respect to BSE. In a herd in which an infected animal with BSE is found, this animal including its offspring, as well as all bovines with known or potential risk of having being exposed to or infected with BSE, are slaughtered and their cadavers destroyed under official supervision. In the United States, all semen centers have an identification system that locates both the mother of the donor bulls and the herd of origin to verify that the dam, siblings, or offspring were not affected by the disease. The donor bulls were born, raised and kept in herds in which cases of BSE have never been verified. At the time of semen collection, the donor bulls were free from clinical evidence of contagious, infectious and parasitic diseases, including bovine brucellosis, bovine genital campylobacteriosis, bovine venereal trichomoniasis, bovine tuberculosis, bovine virus diarrhea, enzootic bovine leukosis, infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR), leptospirosis, and paratuberculosis. The artificial insemination (AI) center from which the semen originated has been clinically free of the above-mentioned diseases during 6 months prior to semen collection. There have been no outbreaks of the following diseases: bluetongue, coital exanthema, pseudorabies, and Q fever during the same period. The donors were at the time of semen collection part of the resident herd at a semen collection center which complies with OIE and/or Certified Semen Services (CSS) minimum requirements for disease control of semen produced for artificial insemination (AI) or their equivalent. The donors were tested and examined prior to entry for bovine tuberculosis, bovine brucellosis, leptospirosis, bovine viral diarrhea, bovine genital campylobacteriosis, and bovine venereal trichomoniasis in accordance with OIE and/or CSS requirements or equivalent and found free from these diseases. The handling and processing of collected semen must be done in accordance with OIE and CSS standards or equivalent. The diluted and treated semen must have been kept separate from other semen not meeting OIE, CSS or equivalent standards. The collected semen was frozen and kept in liquid nitrogen during 30 days after its collection. The straws or ampoules have been identified with code approved in the United States including donor identification, collection and freezing date. Semen tanks for transport must either be new or disinfected with an approved disinfectant and must be sealed with APHIS veterinary seals before being authorized for transport to the place of shipment. Test Requirements The donor bulls were negative to the following tests within the 6 months prior or 6 months after semen collection for export, except the fecal culture test for paratuberculosis which is valid for 12 months and for the specific testing requirements for bluetongue and infectious bovine rhinotracheitis: Brucellosis: Complement fixation test; or ELISA test; or Rose Bengal. Tuberculosis: Single cervical or caudal fold intradermal test using bovine PPD. Leptospirosis: Microtiter agglutination test at a 1:100 dilution for L. canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. pomona, and L. icterohaemorrhagiae. In lieu of testing, donors may be treated with a single dose of long-acting oxytetracycline at a dose of 20 mg/kg within 14 days prior to collection. Tested donors with titers higher than 1:100 and lower than 1:400 for all Leptospira serovars except L. hardjo, may be treated with a dose of long-acting oxytetracycline at a dose of 20 mg/kg within 14 days prior to semen collection. Trichomoniasis: Culture. Campylobacteriosis: Culture. Paratuberculosis: Intradermal caudal fold test using johnin or a fecal culture test or ELISA. Bluetongue: One test AGID or ELISA within a period of 6 months before semen collection up until 60 days after collection or whole-blood virus isolation test conducted at weekly intervals during the collection period, beginning with the first collection and ending with the last collection. IBR: Serum neutralization test at a titer of 1:8 or ELISA at least 21 days after semen collection or virus isolation test on the date of collection or PCR in semen. BVD: Virus isolation in blood or PCR in semen. Enzootic bovine leukosis: AGID test or ELISA or PCR analysis. Other Information Please be advised that SENASA has a requirement for the previous import permit. This permit is valid for 90 days and one import shipment. Consular endorsement of the export health certificate is not required. An animal health certificate under this protocol cannot be used to certify semen from Canada for export to Peru. A.4. Horses Horses must be accompanied by a U.S. Origin Health Certificate issued by a veterinarian authorized by USDA and endorsed by a Veterinary Services veterinarian. The certificate shall contain the name and address of the consignor and the consignee and a complete identification of the animals to be exported.
