Controlling the places of first arrivals

The control of places of first arrivals is a food control which is aimed at food of animal origin introduced into Finland from other EU-member states and certain other countries*. The aim of the control of places of first arrivals is to ensure the food hygiene quality of the foodstuffs and to prevent the spread of animal diseases transmitted by these.

Important instructions, forms, legislation etc. can be found on the page "For first arrival operators" and other links on the left.

Evira plans and directs the control at point of entry nationally. The controls are carried out by Evira or by the municipalities according to the agreements made with Evira.
