Products of animal origin
Commission Delegated Regulation amending Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/625 as regards combined nomenclature and harmonised system codes, import conditions of certain composite products, amending Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2122 as regards certain pet birds exempted from official controls at border control posts and amending Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/630 as regards requirements for composite products exempted from official controls at border control posts (Text with EEA relevance). Language(s): English. Number of pages: 12
The revision has the main purpose to align the import conditions for shelf-stable composite products containing colostrum-based products, to the requirements proposed in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/692 on animal health grounds, considering the animal health risks related to those processed products of animal origin and the absence of effective treatments to mitigate them. Therefore, shelf-stable composite products containing colostrum-based products shall no longer benefit from the possibility to be accompanied by a private attestation, and will have to be officially certified.
The opportunity is taken:
- to correct some structural and writing errors in some articles that might create unintentional confusion as regards the combined nomenclature and harmonised system codes of the products covered by the import conditions;
- to include a CN code for pollen flour which represents a residue risk and should only be imported in accordance with the import conditions for other apiculture products; it also includes a CN code for Vitamin D3 derived from lanolin to ensure imports can continue under the relevant import conditions;
- to amend Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2122 in respect of the provisions for pet birds to make minor updates to certain references to acts mentioned in that Delegated Regulation;
- to provide new legal references in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/630 as a consequence of changes in Article 12(2) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/625 and to clarify that only shelf-stable composite products not containing colostrum-based products or any processed meat other than gelatine, collagen or highly refined products may be exempted from official controls at border control posts.
