OFFICIAL CONTROLS / HYGIENE - Application of public health requirements of imports of food: transitional period - Council consideation

The following is an extract from the minutes of the Environment Council meeting held on the 5 March 2019.

The Council decided not to oppose a Commission regulation laying down transitional measures for the application of public health requirements of imports of food containing both products of plant origin and processed products of animal origin (composite products - 5751/19).

The objective of the regulation is to establish a single date of application for the new import conditions for composite products covered by Article 6(4) of regulation 853/2004, thereby extending the end of these transitional measures to 20 April 2021.
