The Article 56 of the regulation sets out that for each consignment of the categories of animals and goods referred to in Article 47(1) the operator responsible for the consignment shall complete the relevant part of the CHED, providing the information necessary for the immediate and complete identification of the consignment and its destination.

Changes as of 14 December 2019

The CHED replaces Common veterinary entry document (CVED) and Common entry document (CED) as of 14 December 2019.
