       CORRECTION REQUIRED FOR RUSSIAN BEEF, PORK AND POULTRY
                            CERTIFICATES

Beginning January 1, 2010, FSIS Public Health Veterinarians (PHVs) that sign the
export certificates (forms) listed below are authorized to indicate the year of issuance as
2010 by making a pen and ink change because the certificates have a preprinted
partially completed year in the signature (“Made on”) date as 200_. PHVs need to cross
through the last zero in the preprinted number, write in a “1” above the crossed-out
zero, write in a “0” in the space provided, and initial the pen and ink changes. The
following certificates (forms) are affected:

      FSIS Form 9450-3 (11/16/2006), Veterinary Certificate for Frozen Pork Meat and
       By-Products Exported into the Russian Federation for Processing or Retail Sale;

      FSIS Form 9450-4 (03/10/2006), Veterinary Certificate for Export of Poultry Meat
       to the Russian Federation; and

      FSIS Form 9450-5 (12/01/2006), Veterinary Certificate for Beef and Beef By-
       Products Exported from the USA to the Russian Federation.

The Agency has ordered corrected editions of these certificates, and the certificates will
show the signature (“Made on”) date as 20__. The corrected certificates are not yet
available.

The older editions of the certificates listed above may continue to be used until
July 1, 2010. The new editions may be ordered from the Beltsville Service Center as
soon as they are available. Once obtained, the certificates (forms) with the ‘200_” date
are to be destroyed and removed from accountable inventory on FSIS Form 2400-3,
Inventory of Accountable Items.
