Imported food Controls for high risk foods of non-animal origin

Certain imported high risk foods of non-animal origin (HRFNAO) are subject to increased official controls and emergency measures.

High risk foods of non-animal origin include any food or feed that is not covered by veterinary checks. 

Products that originate from a third country must meet the required standard to be allowed into GB and must be imported at a designated border control post

Information on these products, country of origin and frequency of checks can be found in Commission Implementing Regulation 2019/1793 (as amended).

What documents do I need?

High risk foods must be presented at a designated border control post and prior notification must be made to the authority using a CHED-D submitted via IPAFFS. 

Other documents that will be required include:
