A notification from DOMENICODELUCIA SPA (Italy) was submitted to the European Commission under Article 14 of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 to place on the market nuts of Canarium ovatum Engl. as a traditional food from a third country (TF). In line with Article 15(2) of that Regulation, EFSA was asked by the European Commission whether there are duly reasoned safety objections to the placing on the market of the TF within the European Union. The TF consists of nuts of Canarium ovatum Engl. that, according to the applicant, have been consumed for more than 25 years in the Philippines. The TF is proposed to be marketed in the European Union as such, dried and with shells that must be removed before consumption. EFSA considers that the available data on composition and history of use of the TF do not raise safety concerns. Considering the available data, EFSA does not raise safety objections to the placing on the market of the TF (nuts of Canarium ovatum Engl.) within the EU.
