Draft Act on sampling imported foodstuffs to control pathogens and reporting requirements by EU | Consultation
Summary - With a view to harmonising controls, the Commission intends to amend Regulation (EC) No 2017/186 to fix harmonised sampling procedures for commodities subject to specific controls, i.e. for the time being sesame seeds and betel leaves from India. Consignments would have to be tested using such sampling procedures by the exporting country and EU competent authorities at the EU borders. In addition the reporting by Member States is simplified and limited to once a year.
Feedback period: 24.05.2019 - 21.06.2019
