Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1572 of 28 October 2020 amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/626 as regards lists of third countries and regions thereof authorised for the entry into the European Union of dairy products and insects

Dec 01, 2020

 Article 10 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/626 provides that consignments of raw milk, colostrum, dairy products and colostrum-based products intended for human consumption are only authorised for the entry into the Union if they come from third countries or regions thereof authorised for import into the Union in accordance with Article 2 of Commission Regulation (EU) No 605/2010.

Article 20 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/626 provides that consignments of insects intended for human consumption are only authorised for entry into the Union if such foods have originated in and been consigned from a third country or region thereof, listed in in Annex IIIa to that Implementing Regulation.

On 6 April 2020, Thailand provided sufficient evidence and guarantees to the Commission to be included in the list of third countries or regions thereof authorised for the entry into the Union of consignments of insects. Thailand should therefore be included in the list set out in Annex IIIa to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/626, and that Annex should be amended accordingly.
