Preparations needed for new EU-to-GB import rules

From the start of next year, all British importers will need to complete declarations for imports from the EU. However, the government has delayed some import controls – including health certification and sanitary checks for food, animal-origin products and plant-based goods – until later in 2022. Despite this, the clock is ticking for importers to prepare for completing declarations from 1 January 2022. On 28 October 2021 at 1pm, the IOE&IT is hosting a free webinar to explain the new timeline for import controls and what this means for traders.

At this webinar the IOE&IT will run an extended Q&A session with industry experts to answer your questions about when rule changes are being introduced and what you need to do to prepare. Experts will also give practical advice about what traders can do to prepare for these changes – including using Digital Trader Services to complete declarations.

Topics that will be covered include: 
- The customs controls and checks that are being introduced on 1 January 2022 
- How the new Digital Trader Services will help traders to complete declarations 
- The requirement to use the new Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) and how this works 
- When pre-notification and health certification will be introduced for agri-foods and steps traders can take 
- When physical checks will be introduced at Border Control Posts
