Peru: Suspension of imports from Peru extended Featured


The European Commission announced that it will extend the suspension of imports from Peru of certain bivalve molluscs intended for human consumption, for a further year, until 30 November 2018. The suspension was imposed in 2008 following an outbreak of Hepatitis A in humans related to the consumption of Peruvian bivalve molluscs. An audit by the Commission Services was scheduled for May 2017, but could not take place at time due to weather phenomenon of El Niño, which affected Peru at that time and impacted on the production of bivalve molluscs. The mission finally took place in September 2017, and its results will be taken into account in future decisions of the Commission.
