As a result, on the one hand, it promotes the United States to prolong the transition period of laws and regulations, reduce unreasonable evaluation projects, and reduce trade costs; On the other hand, guide export enterprises to improve the quality and safety management system in accordance with the requirements of laws and regulations, improve the level of self-inspection and self-control, and ensure that export products meet the requirements.

This time, the United States confirms that the regulatory system of catfish products exported to the United States is equivalent, which will have a positive impact on the trade of aquatic products exported to the United States.
