COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/1900

of 27 October 2021

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 on the temporary increase of official controls and emergency measures governing the entry into the Union of certain goods from certain third countries implementing Regulations (EU) 2017/625 and (EC) No 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(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 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 January 2002 laying down the general principles and requirements of food law, establishing the European Food Safety Authority and laying down procedures in matters of food safety (1), and in particular Article 53(1)(b) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 March 2017 on official controls and other official activities performed to ensure the application of food and feed law, rules on animal health and welfare, plant health and plant protection products, amending Regulations (EC) No 999/2001, (EC) No 396/2005, (EC) No 1069/2009, (EC) No 1107/2009, (EU) No 1151/2012, (EU) No 652/2014, (EU) 2016/429 and (EU) 2016/2031 of the European Parliament and of the Council, Council Regulations (EC) No 1/2005 and (EC) No 1099/2009 and Council Directives 98/58/EC, 1999/74/EC, 2007/43/EC, 2008/119/EC and 2008/120/EC, and repealing Regulations (EC) No 854/2004 and (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council, Council Directives 89/608/EEC, 89/662/EEC, 90/425/EEC, 91/496/EEC, 96/23/EC, 96/93/EC and 97/78/EC and Council Decision 92/438/EEC (Official Controls Regulation) (2), and in particular Article 47(2)(b), Article 54(4)(a) and (b) and Article 90(a), (b) and (c) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 (3) lays down rules on the temporary increase of official controls at the entry into the Union on certain food and feed of non-animal origin from certain third countries listed in Annex I to that Implementing Regulation, on special conditions governing the entry into the Union of certain food and feed from certain third countries due to the risk of contamination by mycotoxins, including aflatoxins, pesticide residues, pentachlorophenol and dioxins, and microbiological contamination, listed in Annex II to that Implementing Regulation, and on the suspension of entry into the Union of certain food and feed from certain third countries, listed in Annex IIa to that Implementing Regulation.

(2)

Since the term ‘compound food’ in Article 1(1)(b)(ii), Article 8, in Table 2 of Annex II and in Annex IV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 is not used with the same understanding as in other Union legislation, it is appropriate to replace this term by ‘food consisting of two or more ingredients’.

(3)

In order to ensure uniform understanding and application of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, it is appropriate to add the definition of ‘country of origin’ to Article 2 of that Implementing Regulation.

(4)

Article 12 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 provides that the lists set out in its Annexes I and II are to be reviewed at regular intervals not exceeding six months, in order to take into account new information related to risks and non-compliance with Union legislation.

(5)

Annex IIa to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 lists food and feed from certain third countries subject to suspension of entry into the Union, as referred to in Article 11a of that Regulation.

(6)

Given that Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 does not explicitly provide for a period of applicability of the emergency measures for the products listed in Annex IIa and considering that these measures are to be withdrawn or modified where new information related to risks and to non-compliance with Union legislation becomes available, the list set out in Annex IIa to this Regulation should also be regularly reviewed. It is therefore appropriate to amend Article 12 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793.

(7)

The occurrence and relevance of recent food incidents notified through the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (‘RASFF’), as established by Regulation (EC) No 178/2002, and information regarding official controls performed by Member States on food and feed of non-animal origin in the second semester of 2020 indicate that the lists set out in Annexes I and II to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 should be amended in order to protect human health in the Union.

(8)

In particular, for consignments of lemons from Turkey, the data resulting from notifications in the RASFF and information regarding official controls performed by Member States indicate the emergence of new risks to human health, due to a possible contamination by pesticide residues, requiring an increased level of official controls. In addition, for consignments of groundnuts from Brazil, information regarding official controls performed by Member States indicate the emergence of new risks to human health, due to a possible contamination by pesticide residues, requiring an increased level of official controls. Entries on both of those commodities should therefore be included in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, with a frequency of identity and physical checks set at 20 %.

(9)

Due to the frequency of non-compliance with the relevant requirements provided for in Union legislation as regards contamination by pesticide residues detected during official controls performed by Member States in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, and due to the high number of notifications in the RASFF, it is appropriate to increase to 20 % the frequency of identity and physical checks to be performed on oranges, mandarins, clementines, wilkings and similar citrus hybrids, and sweet peppers and peppers of the genus Capsicum (other than sweet) from Turkey.

(10)

Due to the high frequency of non-compliance with the relevant requirements provided for in Union legislation with respect to contamination by pesticide residues detected during official controls performed by Member States in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, it is appropriate to increase to 50 % the frequency of identity and physical checks to be performed on jackfruit from Malaysia and on peppers of the genus Capsicum (other than sweet) from Uganda.

(11)

Due to notifications in the RASFF concerning contamination by residues of ethylene oxide, as regards certain consignments of okra from India, ethylene oxide should be added to the analysis to be performed on this commodity and the frequency of physical and identity checks for the presence of pesticide residues, including ethylene oxide, to be performed on okra from India at the Union borders, should be increased to 20 %.

(12)

Due to the frequency of non-compliance with the relevant requirements provided for in Union legislation as regards contamination by aflatoxins detected during official controls performed by Member States in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, and due to the high number of notifications in the RASFF, it is appropriate to increase to 20 % the frequency of identity and physical checks to be performed on groundnuts from the United States.

(13)

Due to the high frequency of non-compliance with the relevant requirements provided for in Union legislation as regards contamination by Salmonella detected during official controls performed by Member States in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, it is appropriate to increase to 50 % the frequency of identity and physical checks to be performed on Sesamum seeds from Sudan.

(14)

Due to the high frequency of non-compliance with the relevant requirements provided for in Union legislation as regards contamination by pesticide residues detected during official controls performed by Member States in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, it is appropriate to increase to 50 % the frequency of identity and physical checks to be performed on vine leaves from Turkey.

(15)

For hazelnuts and products produced from hazelnuts from Georgia, the available information indicates a favourable trend of the degree of compliance with the relevant requirements provided for in Union legislation as regards contamination by aflatoxins. It is appropriate to decrease to 20 % the frequency of identity and physical checks to be performed on hazelnuts and products produced from hazelnuts from Georgia. Hazelnuts and products produced from hazelnuts from Turkey and from Azerbaijan are listed in Annex II to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 due to risk of contamination by aflatoxins. For the purpose of ensuring consistency in mitigating risks, it is appropriate to amend the existing entry on hazelnuts and products produced from hazelnuts from Georgia to cover the same products as those originating from Turkey and from Azerbaijan.

(16)

Sesamum seeds from Ethiopia have been subject to an increased level of official controls due to the risk of contamination by Salmonella since January 2019. The official controls carried out on those foodstuffs by the Member States show a persistent high rate of non-compliance since the establishment of the increased level of official controls. Those results provide evidence that the entry of those foodstuffs into the Union constitutes a serious risk for human health.

(17)

It is therefore necessary, in addition to the increased level of official controls, to provide for special conditions in relation to Sesamum seeds from Ethiopia. In particular, all consignments of Sesamum seeds from Ethiopia should be accompanied by an official certificate stating that all results of sampling and analysis show the absence of Salmonella in 25 g as provided in Article 10(2)(d) of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793. The results of the sampling and analysis should be attached to that certificate. Therefore, the entry on Sesamum seeds from Ethiopia in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 should be deleted and an entry on those seeds should be inserted in Annex II to that Implementing Regulation.

(18)

Peppers of the genus Capsicum (sweet or other than sweet) from Sri Lanka have been subject to an increased level of official controls as regards the presence of aflatoxins since July 2017. The official controls carried out on these foodstuffs by the Member States show a persistent high rate of non-compliance since the establishment of the increased level of official controls. Those results provide evidence that the entry of those foodstuffs into the Union constitutes a serious risk for human health.

(19)

It is therefore necessary, in addition to the increased level of official controls, to provide for special conditions for peppers of the genus Capsicum (sweet or other than sweet) from Sri Lanka. In particular, all consignments of that commodity from Sri Lanka should be accompanied by an official certificate stating that the products have been sampled and analysed for aflatoxins and all results show that the relevant maximum levels of aflatoxins have not been exceeded. The results of the sampling and analysis should be attached to that certificate. Therefore, the entry on peppers of the genus Capsicum (sweet or other than sweet) from Sri Lanka in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 should be deleted and an entry on those peppers should be inserted in Annex II to that Implementing Regulation.

(20)

As regards pistachios from the United States, listed in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 due to the risk of contamination by aflatoxins, the available information indicates an overall satisfactory degree of compliance with the relevant requirements provided for in Union legislation. Therefore, an increased level of official controls is no longer justified for this commodity and its entry in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 should be deleted.

(21)

In order to ensure efficient protection against potential health risks arising from contamination of groundnuts by aflatoxins, in the columns referring to ‘Food and feed (intended use)’ and ‘CN code’ in Table 1 of Annex II to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793, the terms ‘including mixtures’ and the CN codes for mixtures should be added in the rows referring to groundnuts (peanuts), otherwise prepared or preserved.

(22)

It is appropriate to provide a transitional period for consignments of Sesamum seeds from Ethiopia and consignments of peppers of the genus Capsicum (sweet or other than sweet) from Sri Lanka, which are not accompanied by an official certificate, but which were already subject to official controls at the border control post in accordance with harmonised frequency rates for identity and physical checks in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 before the amendment by this Regulation.

(23)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 lays down requirements as regards the model official certificate for the entry into the Union of consignments of food and feed listed in Annex II to that Implementing Regulation.

(24)

To align the official certificates for the entry into the Union laid down in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/2235 (4) for different categories of goods and to ensure consistency with the new certification requirements in the official certificates, it is appropriate to amend the model official certificate and the notes on the completion of that certificate set out in Annex IV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793.

(25)

In order to ensure consistency and clarity, it is appropriate to replace Annexes I, II, IIa, and IV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 in their entirety.

(26)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1793 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(27)

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