U.S. imports of live cattle face technical barriers to trade; in 2013 the United States was declared at negligible risk for Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) by the OIE (World Organization for Animal Health). The Peruvian agency, SENASA, established strict regulations regarding BSE and other diseases. However, a deal was announced in April 2015 that SENASA approved the USDA Veterinary Health Certificate for the import of U.S. live cattle.
Imports of used cars, more than five years old, and used buses and trucks, more than two years old, are prohibited. Used medical equipment is only permitted for individual physicians buying their equipment for their own use.
