What about the import of live animals, germplasm, POAOs, and ABP from the non-EU country?

You must continue to import live animals, germplasm, POAOs, and ABP that are subject to vet checks into the UK through a UK border control post (BCP). Find out which BCP you should use.

Importers should check if the CN code for their product is listed in Commission Implementing Regulation 2019/2007 to find out if the POAO or ABP must be vet checked at a BCP.

You must use IPAFFS to notify the UK BCP at least one working day before your consignment is due to arrive.

For imports of certain POAOs and ABP that do not require veterinary checks at a BCP, there is no requirement to pre-notify a port of the arrival of the consignment.
