[F1COMMISSION DECISION

of 17 April 2007

concerning lists of composite products to be subject to controls at border control posts]

(notified under document number C(2007) 1547)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2007/275/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 91/496/EEC of 15 July 1991 laying down the principles governing the organisation of veterinary checks on animals entering the Community from third countries and amending Directives 89/662/EEC, 90/425/EEC and 90/675/EEC(1), and in particular Article 4(5) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 97/78/EC of 18 December 1997 laying down the principles governing the organisation of veterinary checks on products entering the Community from third countries(2), and in particular Article 3(5) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 2002/99/EC of 16 December 2002 laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption(3), and in particular Article 8(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Directive 91/496/EEC provides for veterinary checks in respect of animals from third countries entering the Community to be carried out by the Member States in accordance with that Directive.

(2) Directive 97/78/EC provides for veterinary checks on certain products of animal origin and certain plant products introduced into the Community from third countries.

(3) Commission Decision 2002/349/EC of 26 April 2002 laying down the list of products to be examined at border inspection posts under Council Directive 97/78/EC(4) provides that the products of animal origin listed in that Decision are to be subject to veterinary checks at border inspection posts in accordance with Directive 97/78/EC.

(4) As veterinary checks at border inspections posts are carried out in close cooperation with customs officials, it is appropriate to use a list of products that refer to the Combined Nomenclature (CN) provided for in Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff(5) as a first basis for selection of consignments. The lists of products in Decision 2002/349/EC should therefore be replaced by the list in Annex I to this Decision.

(5) In the interests of rationality of Community legislation, it is appropriate that the list in Annex I to this Decision also covers animals entering the Community from third countries.

(6) In order to facilitate controls by the competent authorities at border inspection posts, the list in Annex I to this Decision should provide as precise a description as possible of the animals and products to be subjected to veterinary checks under Directive 97/78/EC. In addition, for certain CN codes, this Decision only provides for a small part of the products falling under the relevant Chapter or heading to be subjected to veterinary checks. In such cases, Column 3 of Annex I to this Decision, should refer to the applicable CN code and give details of the products which should be subject to those veterinary checks.

(7) Decision 2002/349/EC provides that composite food products containing only a limited percentage of products of animal origin are to continue to be subject to national rules.

(8) However, in order to avoid differences in interpretation between Member States, leading to distortions in trade and to potential animal health risks, rules should now be laid down at Community level concerning the composite products that may be exempted from veterinary checks under Directive 97/78/EC.

(9) Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific hygiene rules for food of animal origin(6) contains definitions of certain products. In the interests of consistency of Community legislation, it is appropriate to have regard to those definitions in this Decision.

(10) There are differences in the animal health risk associated with imports of different types of animal products into the Community. Accordingly, this Decision should provide that all composite products containing meat products should be subject to veterinary checks, while different criteria should be applied to composite products containing other animal products based upon the need to have harmonised rules at Community level.

(11) Certain composite products receive treatment during manufacture which reduces the potential animal health risk present in such products. The appearance, shelf stability, and physical characteristics should therefore be used as recognisable distinguishing features for competent authorities that have to make a decision on the necessity of subjecting composite products to veterinary checks.

(12) In the interests of consistency of veterinary checks at border inspection posts on composite products being introduced into the Community, it is appropriate to establish also a list of certain foodstuffs and composite products that may be exempted from the veterinary checks provided for in Directive 97/78/EC.

(13) In the interests of coherence of Community legislation, it is appropriate to repeal Decision 2002/349/EC and replace it by this Decision.

(14) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

[F1Article 1 U.K. Subject matter

This Decision lays down rules regarding the composite products to be subjected to official controls at border control posts upon entry into the Union.]

2. Note to Chapter U.K.

These chapter notes are explanations, where necessary extracted, from the Notes to the individual Chapters of the Combined Nomenclature (CN) as laid down in Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87.

3. Extract from the Harmonised System Explanatory Notes U.K.

Additional information on the different Chapters has been extracted, where necessary, from the Harmonised System Explanatory Notes of the World Customs Organisation from 2007.

4. Column (1) — CN code U.K.

This column indicates the CN code. The CN, established by Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87, is based on the international Harmonised Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) drawn up by the Customs Cooperation Council, now the World Customs Organisation (WCO), adopted by the International Convention, concluded in Brussels on 14 June 1983 and approved on behalf of the European Economic Community by Council Decision 87/369/EEC (9) (the HS Convention). The CN reproduces the headings and subheadings of the HS to six digits, with only the seventh and eighth figures creating further subheadings which are specific to it.

[F1Where a four digit code is used: unless otherwise specified, all products prefixed with or covered by these four digits must be submitted to official controls at a border control post. In most of these cases, the relevant CN codes included in the Traces system referred to in Article 133(4) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 are broken down to the six or eight digit code.]

Where only certain specified products under any four, six or eight digit code are required to be submitted to veterinary checks and no specific subdivision under this code exists in the CN, the code is marked Ex (for example, Ex3002 : veterinary checks required only for animal derived material, including hay and straw, and not for the entire heading, subheading or CN code). The relevant codes are also included in the Traces system.

5. Column (2) — Description U.K.

The description of the goods is as laid down in the description column of the CN in Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87. For further explanation of the exact coverage of the Common Customs Tariff, please refer to the latest amendment to that Annex.

[F16. Column (3) — Qualification and explanation U.K.

This column gives details of the products covered. Further information on the composite products covered in the different Chapters of the CN can be found in the Explanatory Notes to the Combined Nomenclature of the European Union (10) .]

TABLE U.K.

Without prejudice to the rules for the interpretation of the CN, the wording for the description of goods in column 2 is considered to be of indicative value only, since the goods covered by this Decision are determined, within this Annex, by CN codes.

Where there is an Ex symbol in front of a CN code, the goods covered by this Decision are determined by the scope of the CN code and by that of the corresponding description in column (2) and the qualification and explanation in column (3).

CHAPTER 15 U.K. Animal or vegetable fats and oils and their cleavage products; prepared edible fats; animal or vegetable waxes

General remarks U.K.

All animal derived fats and oils. Specific requirements for the following products are set out in Annex XIV to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011:

1.

rendered fats and fish oils in Row 3 of Table 1 of Section 1 of Chapter I;

2.

rendered fats from Category 2 materials for certain purposes outside the feed chain for farmed animals (for example oleo chemical purposes) in Row 17 of Table 2 of Section 1 of Chapter II;

3.

fat derivatives in Row 18 of Table 2 of Section 1 of Chapter II.

Fat derivatives include first stage products derived from fats and oils when in their pure state produced by a method set out in point 1 of Chapter XI of Annex XIII to Regulation (EU) No 142/2011.

Derivatives mixed with other materials are subjected to veterinary checks.

Notes to Chapter 15 (extract from the Notes to this Chapter of the Combined Nomenclature (CN) as laid down in Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87) U.K.
1. This chapter does not cover: U.K.
(a)

pig fat or poultry fat on heading 0209 ;

(b)

cocoa butter, fat and oil (heading 1804 );

(c)

edible preparations containing by weight more than 15 % of the products of heading 0405 (generally Chapter 21);

(d)

greaves (heading 2301 ) or residues of headings 2304 to 2306 ;

3. Heading 1518 does not cover fats or oils or their fractions, merely denatured, which are classified in the heading appropriate to the corresponding undenatured fats and oils and their fractions. U.K.
4. Soap stocks, oil foots and dregs, stearin pitch, glycerol pitch and wool grease residues fall in heading 1522 . U.K.
Extract from the Harmonised System Explanatory Notes U.K.

Heading 1516 covers animal and vegetable fats and oils, which have undergone a specific chemical transformation of a kind mentioned below, but have not been further prepared.

The heading also covers similarly treated fractions of animal or vegetable fats and oils.

Hydrogenation, which is affected by bringing the products into contact with pure hydrogen at a suitable temperature and pressure in the presence of a catalyst (usually finely divided nickel), raises the melting points of fats and increases the consistency of oils by transforming unsaturated glycerides into saturated glycerides of higher melting points.

[F5Heading 1518 covers inedible mixtures or preparations of animal or vegetable fats or oils or of fractions of different fats or oils of the Chapter, not elsewhere specified or included.

This part covers, inter alia, used deep-frying oil containing, for example, rape oil, soya-bean oil and a small quantity of animal fat, for use in the preparation of animal feeds.]

[F7ANNEX II U.K. [F1List of composite products not subject to official controls as referred to in point (b) of Article 6(1)]

[F1This list sets out composite products according to the goods nomenclature in use in the Union that do not need to be submitted to official controls at a border control post.]

Notes relating to the table:

Column (1) — CN code U.K.

This column indicates the CN code. The CN, established by Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87, is based on the international Harmonised Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) drawn up by the Customs Cooperation Council, now the World Customs Organisation (WCO), adopted by the International Convention, concluded in Brussels on 14 June 1983 and approved on behalf of the European Economic Community by Decision 87/369/EEC ( the HS Convention ). The CN reproduces the headings and subheadings of the HS to six digits, with only the seventh and eighth figures creating further subheadings which are specific to it.

[F1Where a four digit code is used: unless otherwise specified, all composite products prefixed with or covered by these four digits are not required to be submitted to official controls at a border control post.]

Where only certain specified products under any four, six or eight digit code contain animal products and no specific subdivision under this code exists in the CN, the code is marked ex (for example, ex 2001 90 65 : veterinary checks not required for the products outlined in Column (2)).

[F1Column (2) — Explanation U.K.

This column gives details of the composite products covered by the derogation from official controls at border control posts. When necessary, official staff at border control posts must assess the ingredients of a composite product and specify, if the animal product contained in the composite product is sufficiently processed so as to not require the official checks provided for in Union legislation.]
