Foodstuffs with current EU restrictions
Tuesday 25 October 2011
Specific products not of animal origin are currently under harmonised controls in the European Union (EU) that control their importation from specific non-EU countries.
These controls exist to protect public health and may either suspend imports or specify conditions of import. In most cases, consignments may only be imported through designated entry points, documentary checks must be carried out and sampling and analysis or examination may be required prior to release.
The harmonised controls for specific products from specific countries can be found below.
