Consignments of chitin, chitosan and their derivatives for importation into or transit through the Union shall be accompanied by health certificates.

In order to comply with the latest set of rules relative to chitosan importation, we now provide health certificates fully compliant with Europe’s customs regulation.
Types of veterinary certificates
For non food applications : chitosan is considered as an animal by product and the veterinary certificate must be compliant with the Commission Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 implementing the Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009. Pharma, cosmetics, industrial and agriculture projects essentially fall into the scope of this regulation.
For human food applications : chitosan is considered as a product of animal origin intended for human consumption. Certificate requirements are laid down in Regulation (EU) 2016/759. Note : By extension, products certified for human consumption can also be used in non food projects.
