Animal By-products

The Animal By-products Regulation 1069/2009 and the implementing Regulation 142/2011 lay down public health and animal health rules for animal by-products and derived products. They are in place in order to prevent and minimise risks to public and animal health arising from those products, and, in particular, to protect the safety of the food and feed chain.

In the regulations, there are rules for collection, transport, storage, handling, processing, use, intra-community trade, import and disposal of animal by-products and derived products.

See the list of approved or registered animal by-products plants and operators, and read the application guidelines for registring an operation of an animal burial place:
