China Dairy Export Certification Program
The Dairy Grading Branch offers many services for exporters shipping dairy products to China. On March 14, AMS completed system enhancements to make China sanitary export certificates available through
the Electronic Document Creation System (eDocs).
China is the world's largest dairy importer and in 2013 was the third largest export destination for U.S. dairy products
valued at $706 million.
NOTICE: The office will be closed December 25 and 26, 2014 and January 1, 2015. Please plan your certificate requests with these office closures in mind.
