A trip report is now available for Gary’s second mission to China in April to address U.S. industry compliance with Decree 177. During this mission NAEGA supported U.S. government meetings with AQSIQ regarding Decree 177. NAEGA is working as part of a U.S. government led Decree 177 Working Group to develop an integrated U.S. industry and government response to compliance with Decree 177. During the mission, NAEGA supported high level USDA FAS meetings between the U.S. and Chinese governments to address efforts so far regarding facility registration. While in China Gary also met and established an understanding with The China Group Companies Association (CGCA, www.cgcpa.org) to provide for joint work to improve utilization of information systems to facilitate trade and regulatory compliance.
