Are catch certificates required for composite products that contain fish material (processed products)?

  • Catch certificates are required for composite products with tariff codes that begin 1603 and 1604 where there is more than 20% fish content.
  • Food supplements packaged for the final consumer, containing small amounts of fishery products (in total less than 20%), do not need to be accompanied by an Export Health Certificate or Catch Certificate in a no-deal Brexit. 
  • For example: If fish fingers are made up of multiple consignments from third countries and processed in Germany, then they will require a German processing statement and supporting catch certificates from all consignments used to make the product.
