Filippo is directly responsible for the implementation of the new EU regulation governing the importation of food and animal products (EC 2017/625).

Filippo explains what the regulation aims to achieve, how it will be enforced and the rigorous approach the European Commission is taking to policing compliance in the e-commerce environment.
