Organic shipments arriving in to the UK will require a specific organic certificate for each arrival - Post Brexit

QuestionWe have been advised that all organic shipments arriving in to the UK after the 1st Jan will require a specific organic certificate for each arrival - this must be notified to Port Health 6 hours prior to the truck arriving in to the UK and the original certificate must be lodged with Port Health within 5 working days. Having spoken to European organic growers it appears that they are not aware of this situation and do not have to supply a certificate for shipments going to Switzerland or Norway but just provide a copy of their organic approval that covers all shipments.

Answer

The UK will be waiving the requirement for organic goods imported from the EU, the EEA and Switzerland and will not require a certificate of inspection until 1 July 2021. This will provide additional time for GB ports to adjust to the new GB organic importing process from 1 January 2021. However, the EU is requiring all GB exports to the EU have a certificate of inspection. Guidance on trading and labelling organic food from 1 January 2021 can be fiund here
