Below, is a list of commonly asked questions, if you don’t find the answers you are looking for, please contact us.

FBS Imports into the EU are less restricted than in the USA. A proposal made by USDA in 1994 to apply the same FBS import policies as the EU did not get support from the US FBS industry. The International Serum Industry Association (ISIA) supports efforts to harmonize import rules, suggesting compliance with the OIE recommendations. In the meantime, FBS in the USA remains more than twice as expensive as in Europe.
