COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/1177

of 10 July 2019

amending Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 as regards imports of gelatine, flavouring innards and rendered fats

(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 (1), and in particular Article 29(4) and Article 41(4), thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 (2) lays down public and animal health conditions for imports of gelatine, flavouring innards and rendered fats.

(2)

Table 1 of Section 1 of Chapter I and Table 2 of Section 1 of Chapter II of Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 set out requirements for imports into the Union of animal by-products.

(3)

Egypt provided the Commission with sufficient guarantees for the controls by the competent authority on the production of gelatine. It is therefore justified to add Egypt to the list of third countries from where gelatine may be imported into the Union.

(4)

Flavouring innards for the manufacture of pet food may be obtained from domestic but also from wild animals slaughtered or killed for human consumption. It is opportune to align the list of third countries eligible for the import of flavouring innards with a reference to the list of third countries authorised for the imports of wild game meat for human consumption.

(5)

Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1261 (3) introduced an alternative method, based on EFSA assessment (4), for the production of renewable fuels. It is opportune to allow imports of rendered fats referred to in Articles 8, 9 and 10 of Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 for the use in the new alternative method since the use of the same materials is allowed in the Union. Chapter II of Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 should be amended accordingly.

(6)

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 text set out in 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.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 10 July 2019.

For the Commission

The President

Jean-Claude JUNCKER
