UK: New plant import rules effective from July 2022

Following the introduction of new plant import rules on 1 January 2021 and 1 January 2022, in July 2022 additional new rules will apply to specific items imported to Great Britain (GB) from the EU, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland.  

These rules include: 

  • All plants and plant products, apart from those listed as deregulated, require a Phytosanitary Certificate (PC). It will be the responsibility of the exporter in the EU to provide a certified PC. 
  • Article 73 goods may also require pre-notification if instructed to do so upon submitting a customs import declaration.
  • Pre-notification will continue to be required for all other regulated plants and plant products, apart from those listed as deregulated, using either the PEACH or IPAFFS IT system.   
  • Regulated plants and plant products must enter GB through an established point of entry at a Border Control Post (BCP). They will be subject to remote documentation checks and may also be subject to identity and physical checks at a designated BCP or Control Point (CP). 
  • Import checks on high-priority plants and plant products will move from being checked at Places of Destination (PoDs) to BCPs and CPs.
