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 (1), and in particular Article 41(4), thereof,

(1)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 (2) lays down rules implementing Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 including public and animal health conditions for imports of petfood.

(3)

The competent authorities of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia provided the Commission with assurances that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can comply with the relevant health conditions and sufficient guarantees for the controls they carry out on the production of petfood obtained from poultry. It is therefore justified to add Saudi Arabia to the list of third countries from where processed petfood of poultry origin may be imported into and transit through the Union.

(4)

Table 2 of Section 1 of Chapter II of Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 should therefore be amended accordingly.

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