Is the product raw, to be cooked by the final consumer, or RTE?

Hi nchidambar,

 

Thanks for the query and Welcome to the Forum !

 

Yr question is somewhat ambiguous.

 

I assume you mean with respect to someone exporting  to EC/USA from a country outside those respective destinations, ie "import standards"

 

I also assume for "EC" that you do not include national variations in requirements if product arriving at different countries within the EC.

 

I also assume you mean raw frozen shrimp.

 

If the above, afaik there are no controls for coliform for either destination.


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

If the product is cooked, the answer will change.

The product is entering into EU and USA as raw, but end consumer will use after cooking.

In that case, afaik, post #3 is operative

 

But do note that IMEX, countries within EC may have specific "own" micro.  requirements so that the destination port may be significant.
