Third country establishments (as of July 2018)
Lists of harmonised products
When imported, there are legal provisions for most types of consignments subject to veterinary checks (e.g. live animals and animal products, this includes foodstuffs but also semen and embryos) requiring that their import may only take place if they originate in approved third country establishments. Due to the harmonisation of the import conditions in European Union legislation these lists have been standardised and they are valid for the entire European Union. You can find the establishments either per type ("sector") or per country.
Harmonised lists of establishments (import)
This is the link to the homepage of the European Commission with the harmonised lists of approved establishments for the import of food, semen and embryos, and animal by-products in third countries.

Lists of non-harmonised products
There are few areas where the process of harmonisation has not yet progressed so far. There are uniform import conditions and certification requirements but no harmonised establishment lists have been laid down so far. In these areas the lists have to be laid down on a national basis. In these cases those conditions apply, that have been laid down by the Member state, in which the first place of destination is situated.
Approval or registration has to confirmed by the official veterinarian issuing the certificate therein. Austria does not keep records on these lists.
Lists of establishments of destination
Upon import, some consignments may only be transported to approved establishments in the EU, e.g. unskinned game, ornamental birds or, in the area of animal by-products so called intermediate products. Lists of these establishments are being published on the homepages of the BMASGK or the European Commission. Below you will find links to this area and to the homepage of the European Commission.
Approved establishments of destination for animal by-products
Approved establishments for animal by-products in accordance with Reg. (EC) No. 1069/2009 and Reg. (EU) No. 142/2011 are also entitled to process import consignments.
