New requirements will be introduced for importing some SPS goods, such as meat or plants, to Great Britain from the EU 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.
All current controls, including pre-notification, for products of animal origin under safeguard measures, live animals and high-priority plants and plant products remain unchanged.
Full customs declarations will also be introduced on 1 January 2022.
