The United States has an export trade relationship with Taiwan. This arrangement allows USDA organic products to be sold as organic in Taiwan.
. When exported to Taiwan, USDA Organic products must be accompanied by an organic transaction certificate (TM-11). The TM-11 verifies that the product complies with the terms of the trade arrangement. Certifying agents must be approved by the USDA to issue TM-11 certificates. Regional accreditation managers can provide additional information. Overview (PDF)

Livestock and meat products: “Organic livestock products, accompanied by this certificate, were managed and produced without the use of systemic pain killers or analgesics, including the use of Lidocaine or Procaine.”
