Changes to the list of products controlled at import

From the 1st October 2015 new controls are being introduced over groundnuts (peanuts) from Gambia and frozen raspberries from Serbia.

The European Commission have published Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/1607, which contains a revised list of food and feed that is examined at the port.

The changes apply from the 1st October 2015.

A common entry document (CED) will need to be submitted for all consignments and sampling will be carried out in accordance with the published frequencies. All CEDs must be submitted on TRACES.

The Commission Implementing Regulation updates and replaces the list of food and feed controlled by Commission Regulation 669/2009. Products that are affected by the changes have been identified below.
