Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/428 amending Implementing Regulation (EU) No 543/2011 as regards marketing standards in the fruit and vegetables sector
Commencement: 26th March 2019
Amends: Regulation (EU) No 543/2011
Regulation (EU) No 543/2011 lays down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No. 1234/2007 as regards the vegetable and processed fruit and vegetable sectors. These Regulations set out rules on classification of products, checks on conformity to marketing standards and methods of inspection. Specific articles concern producers’ organizations and their recognition.
This Regulation makes changes as a result of revisions to United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN/ECE) standard requirements, which have taken place. Most significantly this implements the indication of the ISO 3166 (alpha) country/area code in combination with the code mark representing the packer or dispatcher when the packer or dispatcher has a physical address in a country different from the country of origin of the products is made a requirement.
However, existing code marks can be used until 31st December 2019, thereafter the new requirement becomes legally binding.
