Commission Implementing Regulation establishing detailed rules on the operations to be carried out during and after the documentary checks, identity checks and physical checks on animals and goods subject to official controls at the border control posts (Text with EEA relevance). Language(s): English. Number of pages: 14
It follows from Regulation (EU) 2017/625 on official controls and other official activities performed to ensure the application of food and feed law, animal health and welfare, plant health and plant protection products, that certain categories of animals and goods coming from third countries must be subject to specific official controls at the border control posts.
Article 49(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 requires the competent authorities to perform official controls on those animals and goods upon their arrival at the border control posts. Those official controls must include documentary checks, identity checks and physical checks.
This Regulation lays down detailed rules concerning performance of the documentary checks, identity checks and physical checks at border control posts.
The current operations carried out during documentary checks, identity checks and physical checks have proven to be effective and ensure a high level of performance of checks. Therefore, the rules laid down in this Regulation ensure a continuation of the requirements on operations to be carried out during and after these checks at the border control posts.
