OFFICIAL  CONTROLS - Update on Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 on Official Controls – Implementing Rules for Import Controls for 'High-Risk' Feed and Food of Non-Animal Origin

This is an update on the progress since 27 July 2010 on Commission Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 (as amended) which establishes the legal basis for controls on imports of certain 'high-risk' feed and food of non-animal origin (non-POAO).

It informs stakeholders that the Commission Regulation amending Annex I to Regulation 669/2009, to the Regulation due to enter into force on 1 October 2010, will now enter into force on 7 October 2010. It also includes a copy of the draft Regulation amending the list of “high risk” products in Annex I that was presented at the Commission Working Group meeting on 20 September 2010, following the second quarterly review. The Commission has indicated that will present the proposed Regulation for vote to the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCoFCAH) on 12 October. Comments are invited by 5 October 2010.
