Dominican Republic: A Huge Win for US Poultry - USDA Intervention Reduces Restrictions on US Poultry in Dominican Republic

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   DR2023-0011

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Directory of Livestock of the Dominican Republic (DIGEGA) agreed on new requirements for U.S. poultry access to the Dominican Republic (DR). The new requirements significantly reduce the burden of restrictions on U.S. poultry established by the DR due to the 2022 outbreak of High Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI). The major change in the agreed requirements allows U.S. counties free of HPAI to export their poultry products to the DR. In addition, restricted counties will be limited to those with detections of HPAI in poultry, as defined by the World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH). The updated requirements are expected to position U.S. poultry producers to regain market share lost to Brazilian exports of poultry to the DR.
