In the wake of the accident at Japan's Fukushima nuclear power station, the European Commission has released measures, including documentation requirements and cargo analyses, to ensure that food or feed coming in from the country is within accepted limits for radioactive contamination.
Products must have accompanying documentation stating that they either left Japan before March 28, 2011, or were harvested or processed before March 11, 2011. Products coming from any prefectures affected by radiation must have additional documentation as proof of compliant analyse. The authorities at arrival will carry out documentary checks on all consignments and will carry out analyses on 20% of consignments for products originating from affected prefectures and 10% of consignments from other prefectures. Endorsement of the declaration by the Border control authority will be necessary for the release for free circulation. Non-conforming products will be disposed of or returned to Japan.
In Regulation (EU) N° 297/2011, the Commission has expanded upon the requirements:
These measures will be in place until June 30, 2011.
