United Kingdom - Food and Agricultural Import Regulations and Standards Country Report 2021

Country:
United Kingdom

Report Highlights:
The United Kingdom (UK) departed the European Union (EU) on January 31, 2020. As a starting point, the UK is basing its food law and import requirements on EU legislation, including the format of animal and plant export health certificates. A range of transition arrangements for trading have been announced for the first six months of 2021, and further updates are expected. We strongly advise U.S. exporters to ensure that their freight forwarders, UK importers, and customs handling agents are keeping abreast of the latest import requirements and are asking local authorities for clarification, if required. There may be different procedures for product entering England, Wales, or Scotland, compared to Northern Ireland (since it is staying in the EU customs union). All sections of this report were updated.
