Currently China’s impurity standard for the imported soybeans from the U.S. is not higher than 2%, but this year the quality of the imported U.S. soybeans is poorer than normal because the soybeans are mixed with more impurities such as grass seeds, so it is said that the Chinese Quarantine and Inspection Service and the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) have reached an agreement and the cleaning measures will be put into effect in discharging ports starting from January 1, 2018 for the U.S. soybeans with the impurity content of more than 1% and China will strengthen the inspection in discharging ports.
If the new rules are confirmed, it will greatly reduce the exporters’ capability and arouse controversy of the companies including ADM. If the new rules are implemented, it could result in the delay of the soybean arrivals in ports in January and February.
