The Vietnam Trade Office in Belgium and the EU said that, under new European Commission  regulations, Vietnamese spices previously controlled at a frequency of 50% such as coriander, basil, mint and parsley have been removed from the control list.

Currently, only chili peppers are on the EU border control list with a quality control frequency of 50%.

Dragon fruit and instant noodles are still in Appendix II with Vietnam's pesticide certification requirements and the inspection frequency at the EU border gate set at 20%.
