Origin and traceability

Supervision and tracing of agricultural products exported and traded in the EU.


TRACES is the European Commission's multilingual online platform for sanitary and phytosanitary certification required for the importation of animals, animal products, food and feed of non-animal origin and plants into the European Union, and the intra-EU trade and EU exports of animals and certain animal products.

Its main objective is to streamline the certification process and all linked entry procedures and to offer a fully digitised and paperless workflow in line with the Commission's communication on Shaping Europe's digital future.
