New requirements for importing animal and plant goods from 1 January 2022

From 1 January 2022, pre-notification will be required for imports to 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 (or a representative acting on their behalf) importing these goods from the EU may be required to pre-notify authorities on the relevant IT system that their consignment will be entering Great Britain.

See: Import or move food and drink from the EU and Northern Ireland to Great Britain – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
