Rendered animal products

MPI helps ensure rendered animal products for export comply with all the requirements of our overseas customers.

Exporter responsibilities

When exporting products from New Zealand you're responsible for:

  • ensuring your products meet relevant New Zealand standards
  • complying with the destination country's legislation and eligibility requirements
  • reporting non-conformances to MPI – for example, if your products are no longer fit for their intended purpose or are refused entry by the destination country
  • keeping the right records.
