Summary

The European Commission has informed the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (WTO TBT) Committee that it is updating the marketing standards for poultrymeat (G/TBT/N/EU/974; G/TBT/N/EU/975). The new rules apply a risk-based approach to controls of water content in poultry, and introduce new definitions and flexibility in labelling to encourage innovations that support the EU’s sustainability goals. Consultation open until 25 June 2023.
