The EU is making changes to its laws, therefore Export Health Certificates (EHCs) used to export goods to the EU need to be updated. If you are a GB trader who exports certain animals, germinal products and products of animal origin, these changes will affect you.
In April, Defra made available new EHCs for composite products, products of an animal origin and a new private attestation for composite products exempt from certification.
From 30 June they published 38 new EHCs on Form Finder so you can familiarise yourself with them. There are further details on their showcase site including the key changes and links to the EHCs.
The remaining EHCs will be published on 29 July 2021. GB traders exporting their goods to the EU will need to use the new EHCs from 21 August 2021. Current EHCs signed before 21 August may be used until October for goods on route to the EU.
