Kontrolle

Commission Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 regulates the frequency of official controls on the import of certain foodstuffs into the EU. With the current amending Regulation (EU) 2022/193, various adjustments to the control plan were published.

 

Here is a selection of the current risk profile-based regular import controls. It can serve as a suggestion for adapting internal inspection plans.

We have limited ourselves only to the import goods and countries of origin that are important from our point of view. In addition to fruit and vegetables, other product groups that may be of interest to our customers will also be taken into account.
