Don’t get caught out in January 2021

If you export meat, dairy, fish or other products of animal origin or germplasm to Europe, all your consignments will need to be checked and certified by an Official Veterinarian from 1st January 2021.

Many exporters are unaware of the new rule, despite it being one of the most seismic trade changes in the last 46 years as a smooth freedom of movement to and from EU countries ends. Among them are those who have never had to secure disease-free certification from an OV before and are entirely unfamiliar with the process.

Those who are not prepared for it will be hit by major supply chain disruption and loss of competitive advantage.
