On 17 January 2024, the EU published in the official gazette the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2024⁄286 signed on 16 January 2024, amending the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019⁄1793 on the temporary strengthening of Official control measures and emergency measures governing imports into the Union of certain goods from certain third countries implementing Regulation (EU) 2017⁄625 and (EC) No 178⁄2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

Accordingly, Vietnamese products entering the EU that will be subject to border gate supervision are bell peppers, instant noodles, and durian, with inspection frequencies of 50%, 20%, and 10%, respectively. Thus, this is the first time Vietnamese durian exported to the EU has been subject to durian residue inspection at the border gate with a frequency of 10%.

Also, in this Regulation, Okra and dragon fruit are still in Appendix II (additionally requiring a quality certificate from Vietnam) with inspection frequencies of 50% and 20%, respectively, at EU border gates.

The regulations take effect 20 days after publication in the official gazette.
