ESA: Icelandic authorities are authorised to apply special guarantees concerning Salmonella to meat and eggs from domestic fowl and meat from turkeys.

The EFTA Surveillance Authority, ESA, has decided to authorise these special guarantees for Iceland. They require that the food products concerned intended to be imported to Iceland from another EEA State are accompanied by documents with specific statements concerning checks on salmonella.

When the prevalence of Salmonella in certain animal populations or food is very low and strict national control programmes apply, ESA can authorise special guarantees for an EEA EFTA State according to Regulation (EC) No 853/2004. The regulation includes additional rules for operators intending to place certain products on the Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian markets. Icelandic authorities can now apply these special guarantees in respect of meat and eggs from domestic fowl and meat from turkeys.
