Type of law

These Regulations consolidate the Products of Animal Origin (Third Country Imports) (England) Regulations 2003, and make a number of further amendments.
These Regulations provide for the use of the common veterinary entry document introduced by Commission Regulation (EC) No. 136/2004 (laying down procedures for veterinary checks at Community border inspection posts on products imported from third countries, rather than the certificate of veterinary clearance. Part 1 of this document is used to give notice of the introduction of a product in accordance with regulation 17, and Part 2 is completed and issued by an official veterinary surgeon or an official fish inspector. Andorra and San Marino are included in the definition of `relevant territories' (reg. 2(1)) in line with Commission Regulation (EC) No. 745/2004 (laying down measures with regard to imports of products of animal origin for personal consumption). Regulation 3(3) incorporates the changes to the exemptions for personal imports introduced by Commission Regulation (EC) No. 745/2004. The Regulations also implement the amendments made to Community instruments by the Act concerning the conditions of accession of new countries and the adjustments to the Treaties on which the European Union is founded.
