Draft Commission Delegated Regulation supplementing Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council by derogating from the rules on the designation of control points and from the minimum requirements for border control posts (Text with EEA relevance). Language(s): English. Number of pages: 6
Regulation (EU) 2017/625 on Official Controls (OCR) establishes a harmonised legislative framework for the organisation and performance of official controls and other official activities to verify compliance with Union agri-food chain legislation. This includes rules for official controls performed on animals and goods that must be subject to official controls at border control posts when entering the Union from third countries.
Among those rules, there is the obligation for Member States to designate border control posts, provided that those border control posts comply with certain requirements, and to withdraw in full or in part the designation where those requirements are no longer met. This Commission Delegated Regulation is based on the empowerments set out in Articles 62(3), 64(2) and 64(5) of the OCR, which give powers to the Commission to adopt delegated acts to specify the cases where and the conditions under which certain derogations and exemptions from border control posts requirements can be granted for their designation.
