FVE welcomes the recently revised Commission Delegated and Implementing Regulations drafts (versions of September 2018) laying down uniform practical arrangements for the performance of official controls on products of animal origin intended for human consumption in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2017/625.

In particular FVE:
a) recognizes the improvements made to find a compromise text with all parties involved;
b) welcomes the strengthening of the Food Chain Information verification and the risk-based approach for post-mortem inspection, as detailed in Annex I of the Implementing Regulation (e.g. Cisticercosis, the age limit revision regarding bovine post-mortem inspection based on specific tubercolosis status or disease surveillance in member states, practical arrangements for official controls for Campylobacter).
