As of 1 January 2022

  • The simplified import procedure ends. UK import declarations are now required for all goods and no deferred clearance is possible.
    • Importers who intend to continue using customs simplification will need an authorisation to do so. However, the procedure is not identical to the transitional solution, as the deadline to complete the full customs declaration is shorter. The supplementary declaration has to be submitted by the fourth working day of the following month.
  • Customs controls are carried out on UK imports from the EU.
  • Pre-registration for products of animal origin (POAO) and document review in the UK IPAFFS system are required

As of 1 July, further rules apply

These include Mandatory Security Declaration: An Entry Summary Declaration (ENS) will be required for all cargo prior to entry into the UK from 1 July 2022. Daily updated information can be found on the UK government's website.

Furthermore, from July onwards, a health certificate will be required for imports into the UK for the majority of veterinary and phytosanitary goods. The certificate is mandatory for entry. This applies to:

  • all regulated animal by-products
  • all regulated plants and plant products
  • Meat and all meat products
  • all other food of non-animal origin with a high risk profile
