The main contents of the revision include:
1. Compound foods (including cream desserts, pasta, baked goods, etc.) that do not contain processed meat and are listed in the annex of the consultation document with stable shelf life are exempt from official control at border control points when imported Conditions to be met;
2. Based on the risk assessment, the competent authority of the European Union shall regularly carry out official control of the composite products that are exempt from official control at border control stations and have stable shelf life as described in Article 1 on an appropriate frequency, and specify specific Implementation location.
The regulation is planned to be implemented on April 21, 2021, and the feedback period will end on February 2, 2021.
