Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs presents webinar series for EU businesses exporting Products of Animal Origin (POAO) for human consumption from EU to Great Britain.

As you are aware, the transition period with the European Union (EU) came to an end on 31 December 2020, with new import controls being introduced in stages from January until July 2021.

In April, there will be a further set of changes coming into effect on EU exports of products of animal origin (POAO) for human consumption from the EU to GB, as outlined in the Border Operating Model. These changes affect EU exports of food and drink containing animal products arriving in Great Britain. The Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs invites you to join our webinar series which will run throughout February and March (please see a full timetable below), starting with:

Sanitary Import Controls for Fish and Fishery Products from 1st April (EU to GB)
Thursday 4 March 2021 from 10:00 to 11:00 (GMT)

The webinar will include:

  1. Actions you must take to continue exporting products of animal origin from the EU to GB from 1 April 2021, with a focus on fish and fishery products.
  2. Guidance on how to meet the new requirements.
  3. Useful links to essential information.
  4. The opportunity to have your questions answered by Defra officials.

The key objective is to ensure that you, as an EU trader, are aware of and prepared for the new rules for products of animal origin entering GB from the EU that will come into effect on 1 April 2021.

The webinar will be held on Microsoft Teams Live. Please use the link that will be emailed to you following registration to join the online event. This event is being recorded and will be made available online . Subtitles will be available in French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch and Polish.

We look forward to you joining us.
