THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018 on organic production and labelling of organic products and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 (1), and in particular Article 44(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Certain third countries require that organic animal products are produced without the use of antibiotics. In order to facilitate access to markets in those countries, operators or groups of operators in the Union wanting to export such products should be able to prove the non-use of antibiotics by means of an official document.

(2)

Pursuant to Article 35 of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, competent authorities or, where appropriate, control authorities or control bodies, are to provide a certificate to any operator or group of operators that has notified its activity and complies with that Regulation. In order to certify that the organic animal products are produced without the use of antibiotics, the operator or group of operators should have the possibility to request those competent authorities or, where appropriate, control authorities or control bodies, to issue a complementary certificate. The model for that complementary certificate should be established.

(3)

In the interest of clarity and legal certainty, this Regulation should apply from the date of application of Regulation (EU) 2018/848,

At the request of an operator or group of operators that is already in possession of a certificate as referred to in Article 35 of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, the relevant competent authority or, where appropriate, the relevant control authority or control body, shall issue a complementary certificate certifying that the operator or group of operators produced organic animal products without the use of antibiotics if such certificate is needed for the purpose of export of those products from the Union. The model for that complementary certificate is set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

Entry into force and application

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

COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2021/2305

of 21 October 2021

supplementing Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council with rules on the cases where and conditions under which organic products and in-conversion products are exempted from official controls at border control posts, the place of official controls for such products and amending Commission Delegated Regulations (EU) 2019/2123 and (EU) 2019/2124

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

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) (1), and in particular Article 48, point (h), and Articles 51(1), point (a), 53(1), points (a) and (e), and 77(1), point (k), thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), official controls in Member States to verify compliance with the conditions and measures for the import into the Union of products that are intended to be placed on the market within the Union as organic products or in-conversion products, are to be performed at border control posts in accordance with Article 47(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625.

(2)

Article 47(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 specifies the categories of animals and goods entering the Union from third countries on which competent authorities are to perform official controls at border control posts of first arrival into the Union. Organic products and in-conversion products referred to in Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848 fall within the categories of animals and goods referred to in Article 47(1), point (f), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, by virtue of that provision of Regulation (EU) 2018/848. In addition, organic products and in-conversion products may fall within the categories of animals and goods referred to in Article 47(1), point (f), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, also by virtue of acts or rules referred to in that provision, other than Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848. Similarly, organic and in-conversion products may also fall within the categories of animals and goods referred to in Article 47(1), points (a) to (e), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, provided that they meet the relevant requirements.

(3)

In accordance with Article 48, point (h), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, animals and goods posing a low risk or no specific risk may be exempted from official controls at border control posts. Article 3, point (24), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 defines ‘risk’ with reference to adverse effects on human, animal or plant health, animal welfare or the environment, but not in relation to the quality of food. Organic products and in-conversion products entering the Union may be considered as posing a low risk or no specific risk to human, animal or plant health, animal welfare or to the environment, where they do not fall within the categories of animals and goods subject to official controls at border control posts pursuant to Article 47(1), points (a) to (e), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, or within the categories of animals and goods referred to in Article 47(1), point (f), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, in relation to whose entry into the Union conditions or measures have been established in accordance with Article 126 or 128 of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 respectively, or with the rules referred to in Article 1(2), points (a) to (h) and (j), of that Regulation, which require that compliance with those conditions or measures be ascertained at the entry of the animals and goods into the Union. Therefore, it is appropriate to exempt such products from official controls at border control posts.

(4)

Official controls of organic products and in-conversion products intended to be placed on the Union market that are exempted from official controls at border control posts in accordance with this Regulation should be carried out at the point of release for free circulation into the Union. Member States should inform the Commission of the points of release for free circulation where such controls are performed. The Commission should keep up-to-date in the Trade Control Expert System (TRACES) referred to in Article 133(4) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 the list of points of release for free circulation.

(5)

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2123 (3) enables competent authorities at border control posts to allow the performance of identity and physical checks at a control point other than a border control post on consignments of plants, plant products and other objects referred to in Article 47(1), points (c) and (e), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 and on consignments of food and feed of non-animal origin subject to measures provided for by the acts referred to in points (d), (e) and (f) of Article 47(1) of that Regulation. Similarly, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2123 enables competent authorities to perform documentary checks at distance from a border control post on consignments of plants, plant products, and other objects referred to in Articles 72(1) and 74(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/2031 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4). However, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2123 does not apply to consignments of plants, plant products and other objects referred to in Article 47(1), points (c) and (e), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 if they are organic products or in-conversion products subject to official controls at border control posts pursuant to Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848.

(6)

In order to ensure the application of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2123 to consignments of plants, plant products and other objects referred to in Article 47(1), points (c) and (e), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 that are organic products or in-conversion products subject to official controls at border control posts pursuant to Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, it is necessary to extend its scope. In addition, provisions should be established in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2123 setting out the cases where, and the conditions under which, identity and physical checks may be performed at a control point other than a border control post in relation to consignments of certain products subject to official controls at border control posts pursuant to Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848.

(7)

In order to facilitate the swift handling of animals and goods entering the Union, the competent authorities at border control posts should be permitted to authorise the onward transportation to the place of final destination pending the availability of the results of laboratory analyses and tests of consignments of plants, plant products and other objects referred to in Article 47(1), points (c) and (e), of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, in accordance with Chapter II of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2124 (5), including where such goods are organic products or in-conversion products subject to official controls at border control posts pursuant to Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848.

(8)

Delegated Regulations (EU) 2019/2123 and (EU) 2019/2124 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(9)

In the interest of clarity and legal certainty, this Regulation should apply from the date of application of Regulation (EU) 2018/848,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2021/2306

of 21 October 2021

supplementing Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council with rules on the official controls in respect of consignments of organic products and in-conversion products intended for import into the Union and on the certificate of inspection

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018 on organic production and labelling of organic products and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 (1), and in particular Article 38(8), point (a)(ii), Article 46(7), point (b), and Articles 48(4) and 57(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 45(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, a product may be imported from a third country for the purpose of placing that product on the market within the Union as an organic product or as an in-conversion product, if that product complies with Union rules on organic production or with the equivalent production and control rules of a third country as referred to in Article 48 of that Regulation that has been recognised under Article 33(2) of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 (2), or has been subject to controls by a control authority or control body as referred to in Article 57 of Regulation (EU) 2018/848 that has been recognised under Article 33(3) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007.

(2)

In order to allow the competent authorities in the Member States to check the compliance of the imported products with Regulation (EU) 2018/848, each consignment should be covered by a certificate of inspection issued by the control authority or control body in the third country after having carried out the relevant verifications of the consignments. Those verifications should always include a documentary check and, according to the risk, a physical check of the consignment.

(3)

It is necessary to lay down rules with regard to the content of the certificate of inspection, the way it is issued and the technical means used for its issuance. Those rules should also cover the obligations of the competent authorities in the Member States as regards the extract of the certificate of inspection.

(4)

The official controls performed on products intended to be placed on the Union market as organic products or in-conversion products for the verification of their compliance with Regulation (EU) 2018/848 are part of the official controls carried out in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3).

(5)

It is necessary to lay down additional rules in order to clarify the criteria and conditions for the performance of official controls before the release for free circulation in the Union of organic products and in-conversion products subject to official controls at border control posts in accordance with Article 45(5) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848. Those rules should also cover products exempted from official controls at border control posts pursuant to Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/2305 (4).

(6)

Certain specific rules on official controls as regards consignments placed under special customs procedures should be laid down.

(7)

In addition, the obligations of control authorities and control bodies issuing the certificate of inspection in cases of unavailability of the Trade Control and Expert System (TRACES) referred to in Article 2, point (36), of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1715 (5) should be laid down.

(8)

Furthermore, it is necessary to lay down rules on situations where competent authorities, control authorities or control bodies in third countries are required to carry out an investigation after the notification of cases of suspected or established non-compliance with Regulation (EU) 2018/848 found during the verification of the consignment by the competent authority of the Member States.

(9)

The use of the qualified electronic seal in TRACES for the issuance of the certificate of inspection in third countries and for the endorsement of that certificate, and of extracts thereof, by the competent authorities of the Member States might not be feasible before 1 July 2022. It is therefore necessary to lay down transitional provisions for the use of hand-signed paper certificates of inspection, and extracts thereof, to apply until 30 June 2022 as an alternative to the use of electronic certificates of inspection, and extracts thereof, bearing a qualified electronic seal.

(10)

Currently, rules on the certificate of inspection and extracts of the certificate of inspection for the purposes of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 are laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 (6). As this Regulation and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/2307 (7) lay down rules for the purposes of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 should be repealed.

(11)

In the interest of clarity and legal certainty, this Regulation should apply from the date of application of Regulation (EU) 2018/848,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/2307

of 21 October 2021

laying down rules on documents and notifications required for organic and in-conversion products intended for import into the Union

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018 on organic production and labelling of organic products and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 (1), and in particular Article 39(2), points (b) and (c), and Article 43(7) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 45(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, a product may be imported from a third country for the purpose of placing that product on the market within the Union as an organic product or as an in-conversion product. Therefore, it is necessary to lay down detailed rules for certain operators in the Union in respect of consignments at the entry into the Union and after the release for free circulation in the Union of a consignment or of a part of a consignment. Those operators are the importers who present the consignment for release for free circulation in the Union, or operators acting on their behalf, and the first consignees and consignees who will receive the consignment or a part of the consignment.

(2)

With a view to organising a system of official controls on consignments ensuring traceability, the importer should give prior notification of the arrival of a consignment to the competent authority and its own control authority or control body by submitting the relevant information on the certificate of inspection provided for in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/2306 (2).

(3)

In addition, it is necessary to lay down detailed rules with regard to the content of the extract of the certificate of inspection as well as with regard to the technical means by which it is to be issued.

(4)

The importer, the first consignee and the consignee should provide the certificate of inspection or the extract of the certificate of inspection upon request of the control authorities or control bodies. It is necessary to lay down additional obligations as regards the information to be included by the importer, the first consignee and the consignee, respectively, in the description of the organic or in-conversion production unit referred to in Article 39(1), point (d)(i), of Regulation (EU) 2018/848.

(5)

To ensure that cases of non-compliance are followed up properly, information on any suspected or established non-compliance found during the verification carried out by the competent authority of a Member State on a consignment should be shared between the Member States and the Commission using the Organic Farming Information System.

(6)

In relation to the paper certificate of inspection and to the paper extract of certificates of inspection, endorsed on paper with a hand signature in accordance with Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/2306, it is necessary to lay down transitional requirements for the use of such a certificate and extracts thereof by the first consignee and the consignee, as well as the requirement for such a certificate and extracts thereof to accompany the goods to the premises of the first consignee and of the consignee.

(7)

In the interest of clarity and legal certainty, this Regulation should apply from the date of application of Regulation (EU) 2018/848.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Organic Production Committee,

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/2308

of 22 December 2021

amending Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 laying down special control measures for African swine fever

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2016/429 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2016 on transmissible animal diseases and amending and repealing certain acts in the area of animal health (‘Animal Health Law’) (1), and in particular Article 71(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

African swine fever is an infectious viral disease affecting kept and wild porcine animals and can have a severe impact on the concerned animal population and the profitability of farming causing disturbance to movements of consignments of those animals and products thereof within the Union and exports to third countries.

(2)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 (2) was adopted within the framework of Regulation (EU) 2016/429, and it lays down special disease control measures regarding African swine fever to be applied for a limited period of time by the Member States listed in Annex I thereto (the Member States concerned), in restricted zones I, II and III listed in that Annex.

(3)

The areas listed as restricted zones I, II and III in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 are based on the epidemiological situation of African swine fever in the Union. Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 was last amended by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/2249 (3) following changes in the epidemiological situation as regards that disease in Germany and Poland.

(4)

Any amendments to restricted zones I, II and III in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 should be based on the epidemiological situation as regards African swine fever in the areas affected by that disease and the overall epidemiological situation of African swine fever in the Member State concerned, the level of risk for the further spread of that disease, as well as scientifically based principles and criteria for geographically defining zoning due to African swine fever and the Union’s guidelines agreed with the Member States at the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed and publicly available on Commission’s website (4). Such amendments should also take account of international standards, such as the Terrestrial Animal Health Code (5) of the World Organisation for Animal Health and justifications for zoning provided by the competent authorities of the Member States concerned.

(5)

Since the date of adoption of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/2249, there have been new outbreaks of African swine fever in kept and wild porcine animals in Poland.

(6)

In December 2021, one outbreak of African swine fever in kept porcine animals was observed in the Świętokrzyskie region in Poland in an area currently listed as restricted zone I in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605. This new outbreak of African swine fever in kept porcine animals constitutes an increased level of risk, which should be reflected in that Annex. Accordingly, this area of Poland currently listed as restricted zone I in that Annex, affected by this recent outbreak of African swine fever, should now be listed as restricted zone III in that Annex instead of as restricted zone I thereof and the current boundaries of restricted zone I also need to be redefined to take account of this recent outbreak.

(7)

In addition, in December 2021, several outbreaks of African swine fever in wild porcine animals were observed in the Dolnośląskie region in Poland in an area currently listed as restricted zone II in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605, located in close proximity to an area currently listed as restricted zone I thereof. Those new outbreaks of African swine fever in wild porcine animals constitute an increased level of risk, which should be reflected in that Annex. Accordingly, this area of Poland currently listed as restricted zone I in that Annex, that is in close proximity to the area listed in restricted zone II affected by those recent outbreaks of African swine fever, should now be listed as restricted zone II in that Annex instead of as restricted zone I thereof.

(8)

Further, in December 2021, several outbreaks of African swine fever in wild porcine animals were observed in the Wielkopolskie region in Poland in an area currently listed as restricted zone III in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605, located in close proximity to an area currently listed as restricted zone I thereof. Those new outbreaks of African swine fever in wild porcine animals constitute an increased level of risk, which should be reflected in that Annex. Accordingly, this area of Poland currently listed as restricted zone I in that Annex, that is in close proximity to the area listed in restricted zone III affected by those recent outbreaks of African swine fever, should now be listed as restricted zone II in that Annex instead of as restricted zone I thereof.

(9)

Finally, in December 2021, one outbreak of African swine fever in a wild porcine animal was observed in the Wielkopolskie region in Poland in an area currently listed as restricted zone I in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605. This new outbreak of African swine fever in a wild porcine animal constitutes an increased level of risk, which should be reflected in that Annex. Accordingly, this area of Poland currently listed as restricted zone I in that Annex, affected by this recent outbreak of African swine fever, should now be listed as restricted zone II in that Annex instead of as restricted zone I thereof and the current boundaries of restricted zone I also need to be redefined to take account of this recent outbreak.

(10)

Following those recent outbreaks of African swine fever in kept and wild porcine animals in Poland and taking into account the current epidemiological situation as regards African swine fever in the Union, zoning in this Member State has been reassessed and updated. In addition, the risk management measures in place have also been reassessed and updated. These changes should be reflected in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605.

(11)

In order to take account of the recent developments in the epidemiological situation of African swine fever in the Union, and in order to combat the risks associated with the spread of that disease in a proactive manner, new restricted zones of a sufficient size should be demarcated Poland and duly listed as restricted zones I, II and III in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605. As the situation as regards African swine fever is very dynamic in the Union, when demarcating those new restricted zones, account has been taken of the situation in the surrounding areas.

(12)

Given the urgency of the epidemiological situation in the Union as regards the spread of African swine fever, it is important that the amendments to be made to Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 by this Implementing Regulation take effect as soon as possible.

(13)

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 I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.
