Food and Agricultural Import Regulations and Standards (FAIRS) Reports
The FAIRS reports are market access reports offering detailed overviews of labeling and import requirements for food and agricultural products, food legislation and standards in the European Union and the different member states.
The EU FAIRS report focuses on EU-wide measures and rules that affect imports of products destined for human consumption. Exporters should be aware that there may be some variation among the different member states in implementing EU harmonized legislation. Imported products must also meet existing member state requirements in cases where harmonization has not yet been finalized. Information on member state specific rules can be found in the FAIRS country reports prepared by the Offices of Agricultural Affairs in the different member states.
The Offices of Agricultural Affairs in the different EU member states also
exporter guides describing national economic situations, market
structures and trends, key players involved in export expansion, exporter tips
and best high-value prospects.
