In the context of Brexit, the United Kingdom is tightening customs requirements. From 1 January, all products shipped from the EU require a fully completed UK import declaration. Imports of animal and plant products must also be notified in advance to the UK authorities.
Initially, the British customs would ask for more paperwork from April this year when importing food products such as milk and meat from the European Union. But the deadline was pushed up several times. According to the British, the red tape and the new immigration rules are exacerbating problems in the supply chain. On the European side, the additional controls already apply to goods from the United Kingdom.
A number of customs formalities will be adjusted Later this year. But safety and security declarations will not be required until July 1, 2022.
