New tool to help Member States control prohibited and restricted goods
The Commission published a list of EU laws that prohibit or restrict certain goods and substances from the EU. Controlled goods exist in many priority areas such as protection of health and life of humans, animals and plants, protection of the environment, protection of consumers, and protection of industrial and commercial property. The list will help customs and other relevant authorities, as well as interested stakeholders, to identify and access the applicable legislation more easily – and in this way, step up compliance with EU regulatory requirements.
