The checks planned for 1 July 2022 onwards will not now be implemented. A comprehensive Government review will now take place with a "Target Operating Model" published in Autumn 2022 which will set out the new regime targetted for the end of 2023.

The requirement to pre-notify consignments prior to arrival in our ports remains in force. 

For more information please contact the Chief Port Health Inspector.
