European Union – Environment. Article 1(3)(d) of Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 should be interpreted as meaning that shipments of animal by-products falling within the scope of Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002, were excluded from the scope of Regulation 1013/2006, unless Regulation 1069/2009 expressly provided for the application of Regulation 1013/2006. The Court of Justice of the European Union so held in a preliminary ruling in proceedings concerning the legality of a transfer of animal by-products from the Netherlands to Germany.
