Following high levels of melamine found in infant milk, other dairy products, soy products and soy-based and ammonium bicarbonate intended for food and feed in China and the importation into the EU , Regulation (EC) No. 1135/2009 the Commission has imposed special conditions for the import of those products originating in or consigned from China.

Under this Regulation, the import of products containing milk, milk products, soy or soy-based products intended for the particular of infants and young children or originating from China is prohibited. Also identity checks and physical checks, including sampling and analysis to control the presence of melamine, shall be carried out on approximately 20% of the consignments originating in or consigned from China of ammonium bicarbonate intended for food and feed and of feed and food containing milk, milk products, soy or soy products.

Since July 2009, the competent authorities of Member States reported only one non-compliant sample. The quantities detected in this sample, reported in 2011, slightly above the maximum level of melamine in ammonium bicarbonate. The European Commission has decided to repeal the special conditions for the importation of infant milk, other dairy products, soy products and soy-based and ammonium bicarbonate intended for food and feed originating in or consigned from China.
