Food: Import investigation Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

As an entrepreneur, do you introduce food to the EU? You must then ensure that the required import inspections are carried out properly. In the case of imports of food of animal origin (also live animals), the person responsible for transport must first notify the competent authority of the arrival of the consignment at the border inspection post. An import inspection shall be carried out by the authority responsible for the border inspection post, comprising a document check, an identification check (inspection) and a product inspection. Certain studies are also carried out on imports of food stuffing of non-animal origin. For more information, please contact the competent authority.
