Increased beef quotas for Switzerland. The U.S. allotted share of the new
annual 2,000 mt beef quota negotiated in the MTN is 700 mt, an increase from
the original 300 mt quota for chilled beef to restaurants and hotels. The
total quota will be administered by the Swiss Association for Meat and
Livestock Supply through an import licensing system. Licenses will be issued
bi-weekly with the amounts determined as that necessary to maintain a
predetermined domestic target price per kilogram live weight to farmers. In
no event, however, will total annual imports be less than the 2,000 mt quota
which in effect becomes a floor or minimum rather than an absolute quota.
Switzerland is currently importing between 150 to 250 mt in a two-week period.
Thus, under the Swiss import system U.S. exporters could, depending on economic
conditions and aggressive marketing, export considerably more than the 700 mt
quota allotted to the United States.
U.K. export certification of U.S. plants. The British Ministry of Agriculture
Fisheries and Food (MAFF) has advised the Meat and Poultry Inspection Service

for meat plants to be certified for export to the United Kingdom. Specifically,
the cleaning of the paunch and intestines must be carried out in a separate
room. FSQS has forwarded to the British Ministry a list of U.S. plants they
feel are in compliance with the regulations. We now understand that on March 1,
