Official veterinary checks on goods imported from authorized Third Countries


Italiano|English

La proceduraLa procedura

In order to protect public and animal health, the following categories must be subjected to veterinary checks at the Border Control Posts (BCP) of the Ministry of Health imported from non-EU countries: consignments of animals, products of animal origin intended for human consumption, products of animal and non-animal origin intended for animal feed and other products (e.g. skins, veterinary medicines, etc.), food of non-animal origin and materials and articles intended to come into contact with food (FCM),

The BCP, located in all Member States are authorized with procedures established by the European Commission to carry out checks on the imported consignments on the basis of the specific categories of authorization (e.g. products of animal origin for human consumption, animals, etc.). Among the consignments to be checked at the BCP are also commercial shipments from non-EU countries of animal products remotely ordered (for example by post, telephone, internet).

The only derogation from veterinary checks on BCP is provided for consignments for personal use of specific products of animal origin (Regulation (EU) No 2122/2019), for certain products of non-animal origin and for live animals the only derogation is for movements of dogs, cats, ferrets and other pets travelling with owners and without commercial purposes (Reg. (EU) 576/2013 and Reg. (EU) No. 577/2013). The control activity involves three levels of risk-based verification (documentary, identity, physical, including sampling for analysis) to verify the compliance of goods with the requirements laid down by national and EU legislation. The veterinary checks shall end with the issue of a decision of admission or non-admission to import in the event of non-compliance with the requirements:

  • Common Health Entry Document - CHEDA for animals, CHEDP for products of animal origin;
  • CHEDD for food, feed of non-animal origin and FCM;
  • Veterinary Entry Document - DVE for products of animal origin subject to veterinary control on the basis of national legislation.

Importers or their legal representatives.

Food or livestock or industry operators concerned with the importation of live animals, products of animal origin for human consumption, products of animal and non-animal origin for animal feed and other products (e.g. skins, veterinary medicines, etc.), non-animal food and FCM must apply to the Border Control Post for the issue of the Common Health Entry Document (CHED) or Veterinary Entry Document (DVE)without which the customs import procedure cannot be initiated.

The definition of "operator" is laid down in Regulation (EU) No 2017/625 (Article 3, par. 3, paragraph 29) as any natural or legal person subject to one or more obligations under Union law in the areas covered by that Regulation and by Regulation (EU) 2016/429 (Article 4, point 24) as any natural or legal person responsible for animals or products, including for a limited period, except pet keepers and veterinarians.

Generally, customs operations, including the issue of the CHED/DVE, are followed by accredited customs operators, who are therefore the first users of the Border Control Post.

Cosa serve per richiederloCosa serve per richiederlo

Operators in the sector must:

  • pre-notify the arrival of the goods to the competent BCP in advance;
  • submit the import application, depending on the type of goods, through the European Information System TRACES-NT (https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/tracesnt/login) in the case of animals, products of animal origin, food of non-animal origin, feed, FCM and/or through the NSIS-PIF Application, in the case of products of veterinary interest subject exclusively to national legislation.
    From the appropriate menu of the two different information systems, the request for the import of goods is made, by filling in the first part of the CHED/DVE: CHEDA module for animals, CHEDP module for products of animal origin, CHEDD module for food of non-animal origin, FCM and feed of non-animal origin and DVE module (SINTESIS);
  • submit to the BCP of arrival of the consignment the accompanying documentation of the goods and health certification according to the type of animals/goods to be imported (e.g. certificates of origin, commercial documents, bill of lading, the mandate given by the importing firm to the shipper, proof of payment of fees on imports, proof of analysis carried out in the exporting country, etc.)
