EU steps up border controls on imports of non-animal origin

All EU Member States will step up their border controls on a number of pre-listed products -ranging from peanuts to fruit and vegetables- originating from outside the EU in an effort to limit possible harm to human and animal health. These controls are foreseen in Regulation (EC) No. 669/2009 which enters into application and provides, for the first time ever, for a set of common rules for official controls on imports of certain feed and food of non-animal origin.

As a result, checks on documents accompanying the consignments will be carried out systematically on these products at EU borders, while physical checks will be performed at a lower frequency. The increased level of checks is to ascertain the possible presence of a number of substances that may pose a risk to human and animal health, such as aflatoxins in nuts and pesticides in fruits and vegetables.
