Description of content: Certain animals and goods - based on the risk they pose to human, animal and plant health, animal welfare and the environment - must be subject to official controls at European Union (EU) borders, more specifically at the border control post of first arrival, before they can enter the Union. Those official controls are performed to ensure that consignments of animals and goods comply with the relevant import requirements and will consist of 100% documentary checks, whilst identity and physical checks will be performed at a frequency based on risk.

The Official Controls Regulation (EU) 2017/625 empowers the Commission to establish, by means of delegated acts, the cases and conditions under which certain categories of animals and goods can be exempted from checks at border control post. In order not to undermine health protection, welfare and the environment, the exemptions will reflect the (low) risk associated with those animals and goods and will be subject to specific conditions and to specific controls. The Official Controls Regulation also empowers the Commission to adopt rules for the performance of specific controls. Such rules are established for passengers' personal luggage, small consignments of goods not intended to be placed on the market and pet animals entering the Union as part of a non‑commercial movement.
