About this initiative


The Official Controls Regulation establishes the framework for official controls on animals and goods entering the EU via designated border control posts. The authorities at the control posts must be able to plan and carry out these checks effectively and in good time.

This proposal therefore establishes time limits by which certain consignments must be notified before they enter the EU.
