Policy Developments

  • Since 1 January 2019, Thailand has stopped importing distillers' dried grains (DDG) from the US due to new sanitary regulations, which require that all incoming shipments be fumigated with methyl bromide. Many US shippers prefer to use phosphine for fumigation.
  • On 11 December, Mexico notified the WTO of phytosanitary requirements governing the importation of maize from the Russian Federation. The final date to provide comments on the regulation is 9 February 2019 (G/SPS/N/MEX/360).
