TRANSHIPMENT OF CARGOES OF ANIMAL ORIGIN TEMPORARY DOCUMENT CHECK ARRANGEMENTS DUE TO RED SEA SITUATION
SİRKÜLER NO: 6.12 / 87-50 = 02/02/2024

You will recall that cargoes of animal origin for transhipment to third countries can remain at an EU transhipment port for a maximum of 30 days before requiring documentary checks (Delegated Regulation EU 2019/2124 effective 14.12.2019) and this has been adequate for most transhipment cargoes to date. The situation in the Red Sea and the diversion of vessels via the Cape of Good Hope has however resulted in several onward movements being delayed up to or beyond this limit. ECASBA therefore contacted the Commission (DG-SANCO) to enquire if any extension to the time limit would be granted for the duration of the diversion period. SANCO responded as follows:
Dear Mr Williams,
Thank you for your mail.
We are aware of the situation in the Red Sea, but the European Commission is not considering extending the period of 30 days. Enforcement of EU law is ultimately the responsibility of Member States, the European Commission has no power to provide individual or temporary derogations. We advise you to contact the local authorities (BCPs) to explain the issue and to ask for a flexible approach on a case-by-case basis.
Head of Unit
Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety
Unit G4 – Official controls
In view of the foregoing, any association whose members are required to deal with transhipment cargoes of animal origin are recommended to follow SANCO’s advice and contact their local authorities to request an extension of the current 30-day limit. We are aware that some authorities have already agreed temporary extensions.
