ABPA and MAPA Seek ‘Less Bureaucracy’ for Genetic Improvement

Ministry revoked Normative Ruling that made lengthy process of importing genetic inputs

Francisco Turra


The Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA) and genetic houses of poultry have embarked, along with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply (MAPA), trying to reduce bureaucracy for the genetic improvement of domestic poultry flocks.

In a new round of actions, the President of ABPA, Francisco Turra, the executive director, Ricardo Santin, and the technical director, Rui Eduardo Saldanha Vargas, and representatives of poultry genetics companies received on Friday (30), Sao Paulo (SP), the traffic coordinator and Animal quarantine Map, Judi Nobrega, and agricultural tax audit Fernanda Ferreira Simoes de Souza and Castro.

Among the points discussed at the meeting were the progress made with the repeal of Normative Ruling No. 46/2008 (which occurred in late October), legislation considered by the poultry industry players to the current situation of the productive sector.

Over the past two years, ABPA and associated companies have held understandings with the Government to expedite the import of genetic material within processes that preserve the safety and the health status of the Brazilian squad. Technical visits were made in production facilities and control structure.

Prior to the termination of this standard, the process for import of genetic material was highly bureaucratic. New import processes, and more agile, follow the productive context of the Brazilian demand for inputs for the improvement of productivity through the cutting-edge genetic offer, said Francisco Turra.
