New requirements for importing animal and plant goods from 1 January 2022
From the beginning of next year, pre-notification will be necessary for imports into Great Britain of most products of animal origin, animal by-products, high risk food not of animal origin and regulated plants and plant products from the EU.
Businesses importing these goods from the EU may need to pre-notify authorities using the relevant information technology (IT) system that their consignment will be entering Great Britain.
The guidance for importing food, animal by-products and plant products to Great Britain from the EU can be found on GOV.UK.
The relevant systems for animal and plant products are ready for registration now so you can be ready for next year.
