Published by AGRINFO on

Summary

The European Commission has published revised rules on the import of rice, cereals, sugar, and hops, with changes relevant to Basmati rice, flint maize, common wheat and durum wheat, molasses, and hops. These Regulations aim to consolidate existing rules and prepare for the transition to digital customs documents and other formalities relating to imports. The new rules do not affect the current trading conditions or requirements for lower- and middle-income countries exporting these products to the EU.
