RCVS Council Agrees to Prepare Time-Limited Supplementary Guidance on Export Health Certification in Case of No-Deal Brexit


The Council of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) has agreed to an urgent request from the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) to prepare supplementary guidance on certification for veterinary surgeons in case of the ‘extraordinary’ circumstances that might be seen if the UK leaves the EU without a deal...
The supplementary guidance would relate specifically to the veterinary export health certification of groupage consignments, ie those which contain multiple low-risk food product types in a single consignment, for export to, or transit through, the EU.

Currently, Export Health Certificates (EHC) are not required for such consignments; however, in the event of a no-deal EU Exit, the UK would assume third-country status and be required to develop a scheme to enable the substantial volume of these product export/transit arrangements to continue.
