What is IPAFFS and how do I register?

You’ll no longer have access to the EU’s import system TRACES (Trade Control and Expert System) from 1 January 2021.

You’ll need to use the UK’s new Import of Products, Animals, Food and Feed System (IPAFFS) to pre notify the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) about imports of live animals and germinal products from the EU and EEA countries excluding Iceland to Great Britain (GB).
