Live animals, animal by-products and non-retail goods

For other non-retail goods, it is intended that the requirements of OCR will be enforced from 1 January 2021.

OCR provides the following options for dealing with non-compliant consignments:

  • Destroy the consignment;
  • Re-despatch the consignment outside the EU regulatory zone,
  • Subject the consignment to a special treatment so as to ensure compliance (e.g. application of insecticide treatment).

A summary of the procedures for dealing with non-compliant consignments of non-retail / P&R commodities is set out in Annex 5 of the Compliance Protocol.
