We have found the secret to achieving frictionless trade, where your EU clients are not involved in the customs process and UK businesses keep full control on their supply chain and delivery times.
Unsworth work as the freight forwarders and customs agents in the UK, who review operations and work as direct customs representation, to drive this process and remove the challenge around documentation and compliance.
New Import Requirements from 1 January 2022
There have been certain EU to GB Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) import controls will begin from 1 July 2022, we want to remind you of the requirements that will still come into force from 1 January 2022.
Whilst certification, documentary, ID and physical checks, by commodity groups for products of animal origin, animal by-products, plant and plant products, will be introduced in three phases between July and November 2022, the requirement for pre-notifying consignments starts on 1 January 2022.
From 1 January 2022, businesses importing products of animal origin, animal by-products and high-risk foods not of animal origin (HRFNAO) must pre-notify consignments at least four hours in advance of arriving into Great Britain. The pre-notification must be made via the Import of products, animals, food and feed system (IPAFFS).
To help you get ready for these requirements we have incorporated key information you need through webinars and Q&A sessions.
