Animal Health Regulation: Live webinars with expert panel 

The EU is making changes to its animal health laws, therefore Export Health Certificates (EHCs) and the Notes for Guidance used to move goods to Northern Ireland or export to the EU need to be updated. EHCs for composite products changed in April, and a small number of new EHCs were introduced at that time as well. The remaining new EHCs for all products of animal origin, live animals and germinal products will need to be used from 21 August 2021. Current EHCs signed before 21 August may be used until October for goods on route to the EU. 

From 30 June 2021, Defra published 40 EHCs on form finder. Further EHCs will be available from 29 July 2021.

Defra held webinars with an expert panel in July 2021 to answer questions on the new EHCs for fish, equines, meat and Products of Animal Origin (POAO) and Germinal Products.

The slides and narrative from these webinars include information on the new fish, meat, POAO and germinal products EHCS are available below:
