Import Control of Products of Non-animal Origin

Council Regulation (EU) 2017/625 on official control is amended by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/478 and Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2127. It applies from 14th December 2019 along with a series of supplementing implementing and delegated Regulations. It replaces Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 which set down the general provisions for import controls on products of non-animal origin (PONAO). These provisions in turn were supplemented by more specific legislation where increased controls or emergency measures were required to manage the risks posed. Five of these Regulations are now obsolete.

A summary of the new legislative framework for official controls on PONAO is outlined below. The FSAI Guidance on Import Controls on Products of Non-animal Origin (last updated August 2019) is withdrawn. A revised version will be published shortly.
