Uzbekistan Reopens to US Pork

21 July 2017

UZBEKISTAN - Fresh/frozen US pork has been added to the eligible products list for Uzbekistan, with an effective date of 1 January 2017.

The Uzbekistan market had been closed to US pork since 2014, when the country suspended imports in response to findings of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) in the United States.

Uzbekistan was the only international market to impose a full PEDv-related ban on US pork, though Costa Rica bans US pork casings due to PEDv.
