COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2022/384

of 4 March 2022

amending Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 as regards adaptation of the lists of third countries, territories or zones thereof from which the entry into the Union of animal by-products and derived products is permitted

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 laying down health rules as regards animal by-products and derived products not intended for human consumption and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002 (‘Animal by-products Regulation’) (1), and in particular Article 41(3), first and third subparagraphs, Article 42(2), first subparagraph, introductory phrase and points (a) and (b), and second subparagraph thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 (2) lays down implementing measures for the public and animal health rules for animal by-products and derived products laid down in Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009, including the lists of third countries authorised for imports into and transit through the Union of animal by-products and derived products.

(2)

More specifically, Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 refers to the lists of third countries authorised for imports into and transit through the Union of certain animal by-products and derived products, in particular, by cross-references to the lists of third countries authorised for imports into and transit through the Union of products of animal origin for human consumption laid down in other Commission acts.

(3)

Following a major revision of the Union legislation on animal health by Regulation (EU) 2016/429 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3), and official controls by Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4), a number of Commission acts laying down lists of third countries authorised for imports into and transit through the Union of products of animal origin for human consumption, referred to in Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011, have been repealed and replaced, in particular by acts adopted pursuant to Regulations (EU) 2016/429 and (EU) 2017/625.

(4)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404 (5), was adopted pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2016/429, and it lays down the lists of third countries, territories or zones thereof, or compartments thereof in the case of aquaculture animals, from which the entry into the Union of consignments of certain species and categories of animals, germinal products and products of animal origin is permitted. In addition, Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/405 (6), was adopted pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2017/625, and it lays down the lists of third countries or regions thereof from which the entry into the Union of consignments of certain animals and goods intended for human consumption is permitted. However, animal by-products and derived products are not within the scope of these two regulations.

(5)

Accordingly, the lists of third countries authorised for imports into and transit through the Union of animal by-products and derived products, set out in Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011, should be updated, notably by replacing the references to the lists of third countries laid down in the repealed Commission acts by appropriate references to Implementing Regulations (EU) 2021/404 and (EU) 2021/405.

(6)

Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
