EU proposes conditions for notification of additional goods prior to arrival

Published by AGRINFO on

Summary

This draft Regulation clarifies the conditions under which EU Member State authorities may request non-EU operators or importers to give advance notification of the arrival of certain goods at EU border control posts. This relates to animal and plant products that are not already subject to advance notification under the Official Controls Regulation (2017/625, Arts. 47 and 48), and may include food contact materials, feed additives, or plant protection products. The information required must be provided by the operator through TRACES.
