Information about import measures taken in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates following the authorisation in the EU of processed animal proteins from non-ruminant animals in aquaculture feed

SOURCE:European Agency Riyadh - Office Economic and Commercial Affairs Jeddah

REMARKS: EU Member States are informed (enclosed, in English and Arabic) about the new certification import conditions of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) related to the non-feeding of fish with processed animal proteins (PAPs).

These two countries expressed concerns, without providing details, about the possible import of animals and animal products (e.g. aquaculture fish) fed with "processed animal proteins" (PAPs) of porcine origin, and also of poultry origin in the case of Saudi Arabia.

The feeding of fish and other aquaculture animals with PAPs of porcine and poultry origin has been authorised in the EU since 1 June 2013, under Regulation (EU) №56/2013 amending Annexes I and IV to Regulation (EC) No 999/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down rules for the prevention, control anderadication of certain transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (Official Journal L 21/3, of 24.1.2013). These allow the use of PAPs of non-ruminant animals (such aspoultry and pigs) in feed which is used in non-ruminant animals (such as fish).
 
Upon request, the Commission has promptly reacted by informing that products exported from the EU are safe, and that this new practice in the EU has never been restricted in therest of the world.
