A change (1397/2019) in Food Act (23/2006) has brought changes in first arrival control. From the beginning of January 2020 the control of receiving food of animal origin from other EU-member states (first arrival control) will be part of the general food control carried out by municipalities. From now on, the control will be included in the Oiva-inspections.
