Section I. Certificates and Purpose of Certificate Required by Chile for Imports.

There are two main Certificates that the Chilean government requires for every product imported, they are: Certificate of Origin and Certificate of Free Sale:

 

Origin:

Is a document certifying the country of origin where the goods were grown, produced or manufactured. It is used to establish whether or not a preferential duty rate is applicable. This document can be issued in Chile or accompany the product from origin.

A sample certificate is included in the Appendix.

 

Free Sale:

Is a document issued by the sanitary authority of the country of origin certifying that the product has sanitary authorization to be sold in the country, establishing the approval conditions (includes, quantitative and qualitative formula), this document has to come with the product from origin.

A sample certificate is included in the Appendix.

 

Customs Certificates

There are two Specific Customs Certificates required for food products, the Certificate of Customs Destination (Certificado de Destinación Aduanera, CDA) and the Authorization of Use and Disposal (Autorización de Uso y Disposición). For products that are not regulated under Chilean laws, the importer will have to submit a Production Process Monography. A guide to submit it and the form is attached on the Appendix. Both Certificates have to be submitted in Spanish.

 

Customs Destination:

Import Certificate

There are two specific Import certificates required for agricultural products, a Sanitary Certificate for animal products and a Phytosanitary Certificate for plant products (i.e.fruits, vegetables).

Some products like potatoes; garlic and other don’t have additional requirements but need a special resolution to be issued every time they are imported into Chile. For vegetable products that are not regulated by Chilean laws, the importer must submit a Pest Risk Analysis petition to SAG; the form is included in the Appendix.

 

Prior to import some animal products and animal sub products to Chile it is necessary to go through the process of monograph evaluation. Among the products that need to be evaluated are feathers, wool, eggs by products, poultry, animal feed like ingredients, formulated additives in any of its forms of presentations.

Some aspects to consider before submitting the monograph:

– It is a process done prior to import and does not replace the documents required by customs and the sanitary certificate.

– Due to the complexity of the data to evaluate, the authority recommends to submit the form with time (does not specify how much) and advises no to make any imports without having the approval.

– The form submitted to the Agricultural and Livestock Service will have to be fully completed, they will not be process it until all the information is provided.

A guide to submit the monogrph is provided on the Apendix.

 

 

Sanitary Certificate:

A document issued by the competent sanitary authority of the country of origin for the product, certifying that the animal products and by-products have been carefully examined and comply with all the sanitary requirements of the importing country. This certificate may include specific declarations.

A sample certificate is included in the Appendix

 

Phytosanitary Certificate:

Document issued by the competent sanitary authority of the country of origin of the product, which certifies that the plants, parts of plants or vegetable products have been carefully examined and comply with all the phytosanitary requirements of the importing country and that are specified in the additional declarations.

The general requirements for all vegetable products are:

– The lot will have to be free of soil

– The lot will have to be free of vegetable remains

– The lot will have to come in packages and first order accommodation material, closed, and repacking should not be allowed

– The packaging material will have to be adequate to perform fumigation quarantine treatment actions.

Samples of the forms are attached on the Apendix.

INSTRUCTIONS TO PREPARE AND SUBMIT A PRODUCTION PROCESS MONOGRAPHY

INTRODUCTION

 

           According to point Nº4 of the Resolution Nº 3138 dated October 22nd, 1999 are excluded from the requirement of residence all facilities that produce industrialized products from animal origin (feathers or washed wools, eggs byproducts, poultry byproducts, among others) and that submit their process monography and whose analysis shows that they don’t represent a sanitary risk to the country are excluded from the process of registration.

 

            Besides the products destined to animal consumption (feed, supplements, ingredients and formulated additives) in any shape or presentation shall be subject to the process monography evaluation with the purpose of complying with the aforementioned resolution and also with the S.D. (Supreme Decree) 307/79. This way, the components of the different products can be verified and evaluated.

PRODUCTION PROCESS MONOGRAPHY

          Product production process monography is a document prepared by the manufacturer in which each one of the ingredients are identified and the process of production is described in detail, starting from the raw material to the final product.

 

            In the event that the product constitutes a means to introduce and transmit a disease, the purpose is to be able to establish, through the description of its productive process, if at any of the manufacture stages, the product is subject to any treatment that eliminates or diminishes the risk to a managing and acceptable level.

 

INFORMATION THAT THE PROCESS MONOGRAPHY MUST CONTAIN:

1.- Of the manufacturing facility (Manufacturer) :

–         Name.

–         Official number, provided by the competent sanitary authority

–         Address

–         Phone number

–         Fax number

–         E-mail

–         Country

2.- Of the raw materials of animal origin :

–     Specifications of each raw material: origin (species, specifying the tissue or organ where it was taken from).

–       Country of origin

–      Copy of the sanitary certificate when the raw material comes from a third country (only if the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG) requests it during the evaluation).

–      Name and detailed identification of the raw material supplier, only if this one is a part of a finished product.


3.-  Of the Productive Process

–   Process chart indicating in detail the procedures applied in the manufacture of the product.

–    Good Manufacturing Process program (GMP), Good Hygiene Practices and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP), (only if the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG) requests it during the evaluation).

–     In case ingredients are destined to animal consumption, it is mandatory to indicate: the qualitative and quantitative formulation specifying the origin of the raw material (animal, vegetable or mineral) in order to evaluate and verify each one of the components and its physic shape as a finished product (dust, granular, pellets, block, solution, etc.).

 

4.- Of the labeling

–         In the event that the raw material is destined to animal consumption, a legible copy or photocopy of the graphic label must be provided (label, cases, printed bags, etc.). When the original labels include the Spanish language (among others), the presentation of same will be enough. However, when the original labels are in a different language than Spanish, a translation of the same, besides the original ones, shall be provided.

      The commercial presentation must also be indicated (type of packing and product quantity).

 

5.- Of the Documentation

–         In the event the raw material is destined to animal consumption, a certificate of free sale issued by the competent authority must be provided, indicating at least, that the product is openly sold in the country of origin, indicating the name and address of the manufacturer and the corresponding official number. It is also desirable that the certificate declares the composition of the product.

SUBMITTING THE PRODUCTION PROCESS MONOGRAPHY TO SAG:

 

–         Application letter with the required information in the enclosed form (Annex), sent to Chief of the Livestock Protection Department, Avda. Bulnes 140, Piso 7, Santiago.

–         Folder with the information mentioned in section III of this guide (Nº1 to 5, when necessary) for each product separately. Its text must be legible and written in the official language of the country of origin, including a legalized Spanish translation.

–         The production process monography shall be submitted with the authorization of the competent sanitary authority of the country of origin, including its name, signature, seal, date and official stamp.



APPROVAL OR REJECTION OF THE PRODUCTION PROCESS MONOGRAPHY:

 

If the result of the evaluation is satisfactory, SAG will approve the monography by means of the issuing of an Exempt Resolution by SAG National Directress, which will be informed to the Regional Offices through the dispatching of a copy of the resolution.

If the result of the evaluation of the monography is negative, its rejection will be communicated in writing.

The approval of a process monography means that SAG has studied the manufacture process or treatments of a given product, under a commercial brand if it had one, manufactured in a clearly identified facility and coming from an specific country. Such study allows avoiding the step of “Authorizing the facility in origin”. The authorization is to the facility and to the product, not to the importer or its consignee.

The step of submitting and approving the production process monography does not replace the import procedures of a product, therefore, it will also have to comply with the sanitary requirements. Therefore, every import of the product, when arriving to the country, shall be accompanied by the corresponding official sanitary certificate specifying that it meets the general and specific sanitary requirements for that product.

The approval will be indefinite and will automatically be revoked if the conditions under which the authorization was given change, that is to say, if the product is added, subtracted or any change is made to the structure or composition of same, or to its physical stage, manufacturing process or if the manufacturing facility changes. Facing this situation, the manufacturer shall submit a new application letter of production process monography including the mentioned changes.

 

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

 

1.- The maximum time required to resolve about approval or rejection of the monography will be 30 working days. This term will also be applicable to those submissions of product monographies that are retained in the incoming ports of the country.

 

2.- The 30 working days start from the date in which all the information necessary to start the investigation is submitted. If the information is incomplete or if additional information is required, the 30 days term will start once all information is completely submitted. At the same time, the maximum term to submit the new information required by SAG is of 30 working days, otherwise all documentation will be returned to the applicant.

 

3.- For industrialized products from livestock origin that come from a country member of the European Community, no revision will be made for process monography of those which  are included in any of the varieties defined in appendix V (priority sectors and sub sectors in which the equivalence and conditions and regulations related to the temporary approval of facilities can be recognized) from the “Agreement on sanitary and phytosanitary measures applicable to the marketing of animals, products from animal origin, plants, vegetable products and another goods of animal well being” of the Free Trade Agreement with Chile:

(http://www.direcon.cl/frame/acuerdos_internacionales/f_acuerdos.html).

However, the approval of such facilities shall be done according to the FTA regulations.

 

4.- In the event of products  destined to animal consumption, the approval of the process monography shall be valid until SAG approves the manufacturing facility according to what it is established in Point Nº 3 of Resolution Nº 3138.
