Advisory on Inspection Checkpoints

The National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) would like to inform the public, meat establishment operators, meat importers, meat traders and meat and meat product transporters that no directive was issued to its enforcement and technical officers to set up checkpoints in Metro Manila and other parts of the country. The NMIS does not see any reason to set up check points for the inspection of on-transit meat and meat products in the coming days.

Department of Agriculture Administrative Order No. 20 series of 2010, which prescribes “the control measures conducted on meat products during transport up to the time of retail sale for the enforcement of regulations governing meat and product inspection,” provides that the NMIS or the Local Government Units shall only conduct inspection at checkpoints when deemed necessary.
