As of December 2019, the CHED-D will be used by operators responsible for consignments of food and feed of non-animal origin to give prior notification to the competent authorities of the border control post of arrival of those consignments, and by the competent authorities of that border control post to record the outcome of official controls performed and any decisions taken on that basis, including follow-up measures taken on the consignment after a decision has been taken.


The CHED-D is a Common Health Entry Document for food and feed of non-animal origin subject at their entry into the Union to any of the measures or conditions provided for in points (d), (e), or (f) of Article 47(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625.

It will replace the CED (Common Entry Document) established by Commission Regulation (EC) n°669/2009.
