HYGIENE - Commission consultation: Revision of Trichinella detection method and import requirements

Draft Regulation: COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1375 as regards the reference method for detection and import conditions related to Trichinella control

A copy of the draft is availalble on this site (click on image). Feedback period: 17 July 2020 - 14 August 2020. To access the feedback form, see the main consultation page: Revision of Trichinella detection method and import requirements.


It is proposed to amend Regulation (EU) 2015/1375 on the control of Trichinella in order to align it with Regulation (EU) 2016/429, applicable from 21 April 2021 onwards. In addition, the detailed description of the EU reference method for detection of Trichinella is replaced by a reference to ISO 18743:2015, since the EU reference method has been validated as this ISO standard.
