Special import conditions

Special import conditions due to EU food legislation

Here you will find a link to a list of EU legal texts laying down special conditions to be complied with when importing products which are subject to checks by a border veterinarian; these conditions had to be adopted in addition to those already applicable to imports. The list contains only measures applicable due to EU food law; restrictions due to other legislation like e.g. animal health measures are not contained in this list.

Please take note that, in addition to the fees for import checks, further costs may incur during import checks due to the abovementioned measures.
