On the 23rd of November 2021, EHPM submitted its contribution to the feedback mechanism on the “Draft delegated regulation on Border controls for food – import conditions and border controls of trade samples and certain composite products”. With this draft delegated regulation the European Commission (EC) proposes to add the CN Code for vitamin D3 to Article 3 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/625.

In its contribution, EHPM argued how this proposed measure would have a major impact on food business operators as well as on public health. In the conclusions, EHPM called on the EC to:

  • coherently intervene on all the relevant legal acts, foreseeing transitional measures if necessary, to allow the continuation of cholesterol and vitamin D3 imports with no disruption from critical supplying third countries; and to
  • consider exceptions from border control check for shelf-stable finished products containing vitamin D3 and not to impose additional administrative burdens upon manufacturers.
