Port Health imported food inspection charges at the Hull Border Control Post are calculated annually on a cost recovery basis in accordance with EU rules. See link below.

Border Control Post charges are categorised as;

a) non EU High Risk Food of Non-Animal Origin, 

b) non-EU Fishery Products

Food sample costs vary according to the size and nature of the analysis.

Food samples that appear unsatisfactory will be subject to confirmatory testing to establish exact levels of contamination. This will invariably increase costs payable by the importer.

The Authority is required to apply at least the minimum charge for veterinary checks on certain products of animal origin (including fishery products).
