FYIs for animal products

For your information (FYI) documents provide guidance on exporting issues relating to animals and animal products such as meat, seafood, honey and dairy.

Using FYIs

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) often uses FYIs to let exporters know quickly about unofficial information that could affect exports. Information in FYIs is only for guidance. FYIs:

  • are not legal requirements established by MPI
  • are not definitive or exhaustive
  • may be subject to change without notice.

If you rely on the information in FYIs, MPI will not accept liability for any resulting loss.

Publicly available FYIs

Some FYIs are publicly accessible and provide general market guidance on exporting issues for all exporters. They are listed with our market access information and guidance.

Password-protected FYIs

Most FYIs are password-protected. That's because they relate to market access conditions that apply only to New Zealand. If you're involved with exporting, you can apply to MPI for a password.

All current FYIs are listed on this web page. They are also listed on individual Overseas Market Access Requirements (OMARs) pages. These provide information for particular markets together.

Stay up-to-date

FYIs are added or updated from time to time. We recommend you sign up to receive exporting updates by email

When FYIs are cancelled

FYIs are cancelled when they are superseded by another FYI or no longer apply.
