Do animals arriving from outside of the EU, but which have transited through the EU need to enter through a BCP?

From 1 January 2021 until March 2022 (i.e. once new GB BCPs are in place), live animals and germinal products subject to veterinary checks that originate in RoW and have transited EU territory before arriving in GB do not need to enter GB via a BCP if the following criteria is met:

• They have a Health Certificate

• A GB importer has pre-notified via IPAFFS  

• They can show that they received a favourable animal health inspection at a recognised EU BCP (transporter/agent will be required to either upload to IPAFFS or email a copy of the CHED to CITC).
