Currently, chili is the only product left in the EU's border gate control list with a 50 percent inspection frequency at the moment.

Vietnamese dragon fruit and instant noodles containing spices/seasonings or sauces will also be subjected to special entry conditions in the EU market to check for contamination risks and the inspection frequency at the EU border gate set at 20 percent.

Every six months, the European Parliament and the EC hold a meeting to review and assess the level of violations on food and feed safety of countries that have products exported to the EU. The EU will then announce the changes in its regulation on control measures.

In the latest announcement on June 13, 2022, the EU has removed Vietnamese products such as rice noodles, glass noodles, and pho from the list of regulations requiring additional food safety certificates. 

The new regulations, according to EU practice, will come into force on the 20th day from the date of publication.
