BAKGRUNN (fra kommisjonsforordningen, engelsk utgave)

(1) Regulation (EU) 2017/625 lays down rules for official controls and other control activities performed by the competent authorities of the Member States in order to verify compliance with Union legislation in the area of, among others, food safety at all stages of the production, processing and distribution process. In particular, it provides for official certification when considered appropriate to ensure compliance with EU rules on animals and goods.

(2) Point (a) of the first paragraph of Article 90 of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 empowers the Commission to adopt, by means of implementing acts, rules concerning model official certificates and rules for the issuance of such certificates, where requirements are not laid down in the rules referred to in Article 1(2) of that Regulation.

(3) Consignments of animals and goods shall be accompanied by an official certificate issued either on paper or in electronic form. Therefore, it is appropriate to establish common requirements as regards issuance of official certificates in both cases in addition to the requirements laid down in Chapter VII of Title II of Regulation (EU) 2017/625.

(4) Model certificates are included in the electronic system TRACES, set up by Commission Decision 2003/623/EC , to facilitate and accelerate administrative procedures at Union borders and to enable electronic communication between the competent authorities which helps preventing possible fraudulent or deceptive practices in respect of the official certificates.

(5) Since 2003, computer technology has evolved considerably and the TRACES system has been modified to improve the quality, processing and secure exchange of data. As a result, the format of the model certificates and the notes on their completion laid down in this Regulation should be adapted to the TRACES system, for example by reflecting the use of multiple Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes or providing traceability for triangular trade, where the country of dispatch is not the country of origin of the consignment.

(6) In accordance with Article 133(4) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, the TRACES system is to be integrated into the Information Management System for Official Controls (IMSOC). The model health certificates laid down in this Regulation should therefore be adapted to IMSOC.

(7) Point (c) of the first paragraph of Article 90 of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 empowers the Commission to lay down by means of implementing acts rules concerning the procedures to be followed for the issuance of replacement certificates.

(8) To avoid misuse and abuse, it is important to define the cases where a replacement certificate may be issued and the requirements that need to be met by such certificates. In particular, these cases should be limited to obvious administrative errors, such as transposed numbers in the container number or seal number, spelling errors in addresses or in product descriptions.

(9) Article 126(2)(c) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 establishes the requirement that consignments of certain animals and goods are to be accompanied by an official certificate, an official attestation or any other evidence that the consignment complies with the applicable rules referred to in Article 1(2) of that Regulation.

(10) Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) [C(2019)11] provides for a list of goods and animals intended for human consumption, in particular products of animal origin, live insects and sprouts and seeds intended for the production of sprouts, that need to be accompanied by an official certificate upon the entry into the Union if intended for placing on the market. To facilitate official controls upon the entry into the Union, model official certificates should be laid down for such goods and animals intended for human consumption in accordance with Point (a) of the first paragraph of Article 90 and Article 126(3) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625.

(11) Model certificates required for public health reasons are currently laid down in various legal acts. It is appropriate to consolidate these model certificates in one single legal act by making cross-references to them.

(12) With respect to certification of certain products of animal origin for animal health reasons, common model certificates are used. The requirements for certification for animal health reasons should be revised by 21 April 2021, which is the date of application of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 of the European Parliament and of the Council . The common model certificates should be maintained until that revision.

(13) For reasons of harmonisation and clarity, model certificates currently laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 2074/2005 , Commission Regulation (EU) No 211/2013 and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/759 should be incorporated into this Regulation. As a result, Regulation (EC) No 2074/2005 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/759 should be amended accordingly and Regulation (EU) No 211/2013 should be repealed.

(14) To facilitate the verification of compliance with EU requirements, it seems appropriate to introduce additional new model health certificates for the entry of rendered animal fats and greaves, insects and reptile meat intended for placing on the market. Such model certificates also make it easier for competent authorities in third countries to understand EU requirements and therefore facilitate the entry of animal fats and greaves, insects and reptile meat into the Union.

(15) Point (e) of the first paragraph of Article 90 of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 empowers the Commission to adopt, by means of implementing acts, rules concerning the format of documents that are to accompany animals or goods after official controls have been performed. In accordance with Article 5 of Commission Delegated Regulation [C(2019)10] , such health certificates are to accompany animals to the slaughterhouse after ante-mortem inspection has been carried at the holding of provenance. The format of such certificates should therefore be laid down in this Regulation.

(16) In the case of emergency slaughter outside the slaughterhouse, it is appropriate for reasons of harmonisation and clarity, to lay down a model certificate in this Regulation for the declaration to be issued by the (official) veterinarian in accordance with point 6 of Chapter VI of Section I of Annex III of Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council .

(17) As Regulation (EU) 2017/625 applies with effect from 14 December 2019, this Regulation should also apply from that date.

(18) It is appropriate to introduce a transitional period to take into account the consignments of animals and goods shipped and certified, if required, before the date of application of this Regulation.

(19) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed
