EU Rules

Regulation (EC) 1069/2009 and Commission Regulation (EU) 142/2011 replaced the old one (Regulation (EC) 1774/2002) consolidating several related acts into one. "Consolidated" means that the basic EU legislation, its amendments and corrections figure in a single document. As an informal document, the Commission assumes no responsibility for its content.

The current legislation allows for:

  • Clear requirements based on ABPs' technical standards
  • Enforcement measures for the new risk-proportionate approach
  • End point in the manufacturing chain for processed and packaged pet food, biodiesel, tanned hides and skins and other products
  • Less red tape for producers of medicines and diagnostics from ABPs
  • Smoother official controls of laboratories of processing and biogas plants handling ABPs
  • Better traceability from food production
  • Risk-proportionate solutions for transport, processing, use and imports
