The Import of Products, Animals, Food and Feed System (IPAFFS) will be the new national import notification system for GB.  It will cover imports for live animals, animal products, high risk food and feed and will be expanded to include plants/plants products.


At the end of the transition period imports into GB of live animals, animal products and high risk food and feed will be notified via our new national system IPAFFS (Imports of Products, Animals Food and Feed System).  To enable a smooth transition from TRACES, IPAFFS will be phased in as follows:


  • All notifications to GB from non-EU/non-EEA countries which are currently made in TRACES NT on a CHED-A must be made in IPAFFS from 23 November 2020.
  • Notifications to GB from non-EU/non-EEA countries made on a CVED-P or a CHED-D notifications should remain in TRACES until 7 December after which they should be in IPAFFS.
