The exports of these products were free earlier but now they require a Shipment Clearance Certificate and after the shipment is made, the exporter will also have to provide a “Health Certificate” consignment wise to the buyer, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification on Tuesday.
The export of bone and bone products, including Ossein
intended to be used for human consumption, and edible grade gelatine were free till now.
DGFT said that export is allowed freely but export to European Union is allowed subject to certain conditions such as a Shipment Clearance Certificate to be issued consignment-wise by the Chemical and Allied Export Promotion Council (CAPEXIL).
The certificate needs to indicate details of the name, address and Import Export Code of the exporter, along with the address of the registered plant, Plant approval number, nature of export product, quantity, invoice number and date, port of loading (name of the port) and destination.
“After the shipment is made, the exporter shall also provide a “Health Certificate” consignment- wise to the buyer having details of the product with HS code, packaging, its origin, destination, vessel name, date of departure, health requirement. This certificate is issued by Export Inspection Council,” DGFT said in the notification.
