- Safeguard measures
The European Commission issues regulations in order to protect human and animal health against infection or harmful substances in food. These regulations are called safeguard measures and involve import restrictions to the EU regarding specific products from a specific country.
- Food import bans from certain countries outside the EU
Certain products of non-animal origin are banned from entry to the EU.
- Rules of the Swedish Board of Agriculture
The Swedish Board of Agriculture has restrictions on import of certain plants.
Where is the border control carried out?
The importer pays an inspection fee as well as any costs resulting from
sampling and analysis per consignment. The fee is raised if the import control has to be carried out outside normal business hours.
