In November 2016, USMEF membership approved a resolution updating USMEF’s position on traceability. The resolution states the following:
USMEF strongly supports a traceability system in the U.S. that:
– Is built on a program under the authority of USDA
– Meets the expectations of foreign governments and buyers in international markets, and
– Is consistent with the OIE guidelines.
