New EU regulations for mango imports

New EU regulations for mango imports

Published on May 06th, 2019

The EU will introduce new regulations governing the imports of mango. The new directive will take effect from 1st September 2019. According to the Europe-Africa-Caribbean-Pacific Liaison Committee (COLEACP), importers must act now to ensure compliance. The new rules are a response to high numbers of interceptions of mango imports due to the presence of fruit fly (non-European Tephritidae). On 21 March 2019, the new rules were officially adopted as Commission Implementing Directive (EU) 2019/523, amending Annexes I to V of the EU Plant Health Directive 2000/29/EC.
