EU Establishes New Entry Requirements for Imports of Composite Products

Posted by Marta Gargallo on 3/16/21 5:00 PM

On April 21, 2021, new requirements will apply for imports of composite products into the European Union (EU). According to Article 15 of EU Regulation 2019/625, the new entry requirements will no longer be based on the quantities of processed products of animal origin but rather on the risk linked to the composite product itself. Certain low risk shelf-stable composite products that do not contain processed meat will be exempt from official controls at border control posts.  Details on the attestation requirements are outlined in the regulation.
