“Note 6: Export of meat and meat products will be allowed subject to the exporter furnishing a declaration, attached with copies of valid APEDA Plant Registration Certificate(s) to the customs at the time of exports that the above items have been obtained/ sourced from an APEDA registered integrated abattoir or from APEDA registered meat processing plant which sources raw material exclusively from APEDA registered integrated abattoir/abattoir”.
3. The provision in Note-6 of Notification No. 82 about exporters of meat and meat products having sourced raw material exclusively from APEDA registered integrated abattoir/abattoir was a new stipulation. This provision, alongwith all other provisions of Notification No. 82, became effective from the date of notification i.e. 31.10.2011.

Accordingly, this amendment is being notified to bring into effect the above provision of Note-6 of Notification No. 82 after six months from today i.e. from 15th June, 2012. Rest of the Notification No. 82 (RE-2010)/2009-14 dated 31.10.2011 continues to be effective from the date of issue i.e. 31.10.2011.This transitional arrangement would enable the exporters of meat and meat products to upgrade their abattoirs for sourcing of raw material and obtain registration from APEDA. Keeping in view paramount concern for public health and hygiene, no further extension of time will be granted.
5. Effect of this notification
The stipulation that raw material for export of meat and meat products must be sourced exclusively from APEDA registered abattoir/integrated abattoir will come into effect on 15.06.2012, instead of 31.10.2011.
