USDA Certification of Shell Eggs for Export

The USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) facilitates the export of U.S. table eggs by certifying they meet the requirements of countries importing eggs from U.S. businesses. Before shell eggs can be exported, they must be produced under continuous AMS supervision and certified as “fit for human consumption,” meaning the eggs are washed and sanitized using approved methods and compounds. The product is also graded for quality according to the U.S. Grade Standards for Shell Eggs.
