The UK government has decided to temporarily extend staged customs controls for goods that are imported from the Republic of Ireland to Great Britain. For these goods, businesses will continue to benefit from the current arrangements in place and from the deferral of customs declarations allowed for non-controlled goods, as it was in 2021. You can find more information here under section 1.1.6, or here.
In the new UK timetable, the following deadlines are foreseen:
- Safety and Security Declarations at entry will not be required until 1st of July 2022.
- From 1 July 2022, certification and physical checks will be introduced for all remaining regulated animal by-products, all regulated plants and plant products, all meat and meat products, all remaining high-risk food not of animal origin.
- From 1 July 2022, high-priority plants and plant products checks will be transferred from the place of destination to designated Border Control Points (BCP).
- Physical checks on live animals will take place at designated border control posts where a facility is operational at the point of entry. Where there is no designated BCP, checks will remain at destination in other ports of entry, until sufficient BCPs are operational. Checks at Sevington inland BCP and designated airport BCPs will commence from 1 July 2022.
- From 1 September 2022, certification and physical checks will be introduced for all dairy products.
- From 1 November 2022, certification and physical checks will be introduced for all remaining regulated products of animal origin, including composite products and fish products.
