□Major changes to the UK’s seafood import system

Published May 27, 2024

Tridge summary

The UK government has introduced a new 'Border Target Operating Model (BTOM)' for importing seafood and animal products from the European Union. The model simplifies, unifies, and digitizes regulations and classifies products into high, medium, and low-risk categories based on their origin and inherent risks. High-risk items, such as live aquatic organisms, require prior notification, documentation, and physical inspection. Low-risk items require minimal control measures. From April 30, 2023, all seafood imports, except from non-EU countries, must go through a border control office. The government plans to publish a list of approved export facilities and will require an IUU certificate and prior notification for seafood imports. The system is expected to continue to evolve with future changes, and importers must prepare for updates on risk classification and inspection methods.
