COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2016/759

of 28 April 2016

drawing up lists of third countries, parts of third countries and territories from which Member States are to authorise the introduction into the Union of certain products of animal origin intended for human consumption, laying down certificate requirements, amending Regulation (EC) No 2074/2005 and repealing Decision 2003/812/EC

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 2002/99/EC of 16 December 2002 laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption (1) and in particular Articles 8(1) and 9(4) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific rules for the organisation of official controls on products of animal origin intended for human consumption (2), and in particular Article 11(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 requires products of animal origin to be imported only from a third country or a part of third country that appears on a list drawn up in accordance with that Regulation.

(2)

Commission Decision 2003/812/EC (3) draws up lists of third countries from which Member States are to authorise imports of certain products for human consumption subject to Council Directive 92/118/EEC (4). Those lists include a list of third countries or parts of third countries from which imports of gelatine intended for human consumption are authorised. However, there is no list which covers collagen, or raw materials for the production of gelatine and collagen, for human consumption. It is appropriate to draw up such lists.

(3)

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (5), food business operators importing products of animal origin are to ensure that the documents accompanying the consignment meet the requirements of Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 854/2004. Commission Regulation (EC) No 2074/2005 (6) lays down model certificates for imports of certain products of animal origin intended for human consumption. Those model certificates include outdated references to previous legislation that need to be updated.

(4)

Third countries, parts of third countries and territories listed in Annex II to Commission Decision 2006/766/EC (7), in Part 1 of Annex I to Commission Regulation (EC) No 798/2008 (8), in Part 1 of Annex I to Commission Regulation (EC) No 119/2009 (9) or in Part 1 of Annex II to Commission Regulation (EU) No 206/2010 (10) meet the Union requirements with regard to imports of fresh meat and certain fishery products. Those lists could also be used for imports of raw materials for the production of gelatine and collagen. However, less strict requirements should apply if those raw materials have been subjected to certain treatments as provided for in Sections XIV and XV of Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 853/2004.

(5)

Raw materials for the production of gelatine and collagen, whether or not treated, introduced into the Union for transit to a third country, pose a negligible risk to public health. Such raw materials, even when treated, should, however, comply with the relevant animal health requirements. Accordingly, a list of third countries, parts of third countries and territories should be drawn up and model certificates for transit, and storage before transit, of raw materials and treated raw materials for the production of gelatine and collagen should be laid down.

(6)

Due to the geographical situation of Kaliningrad, specific animal health conditions should be laid down for transit via the Union of consignments of raw materials and treated raw materials for the production of gelatine or collagen to and from Russia, which only concern transit through Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

(7)

In the interest of clarity and simplification of Union legislation, and without prejudice to Commission Decision 2003/863/EC (11), the lists of third countries, parts of third countries and territories from which Member States are to authorise the introduction of frogs' legs, snails, gelatine, collagen, raw materials and treated raw materials for the production of gelatine and collagen, and honey, royal jelly and other products of apiculture for human consumption, and the model certificates for those products, should be set out in an Annex to this Regulation. Consequently, the corresponding existing certificates should be deleted from Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 2074/2005.

(8)

In order to ensure the safety of certain highly refined products of animal origin, specific requirements have been inserted in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 853/2004. Therefore it is appropriate to draw up the list of countries from which those products may be imported and lay down a model certificate for those products.

(9)

As the lists of third countries, parts of third countries and territories from which Member States are to authorise imports of furred farm game meat products and feathered farm game meat products and leporidae (rabbit and hare) meat and their meat products have been laid down in Commission Decision 2007/777/EC (12) and in Regulation (EC) No 119/2009 respectively, Decision 2003/812/EC becomes redundant and should be repealed.

(10)

It is appropriate to introduce a transitional period to allow Member States and food business operators to adapt to the new requirements laid down in this Regulation.

(11)

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:
