Animal by-products contain dead animals or parts of animals, products of animal origin or other products derived from animals and are not intended for human consumption. More information on the export of animal by-products and derived products intended for animal feed can be found in the section of animal feed exports. Animal by-products and derived products intended for other purposes include, for example, fertilizers and/or soil improvers, animal skins, wool, technical aids for the pharmaceutical or cosmetic industry and processed animal proteins.
In the case of exports of processed animal proteins or products containing processed animal proteins, the restrictions imposed by EU legislation in the context of BSE control (Regulation (EC) No 999/2001) must be met. Any sanitary conditions imposed by third countries are in addition to the conditions imposed by the European Regulation.
Certificates for the export to third countries of animal by-products and derived products not intended for human or animal consumption can be found in this section.
