DEFRA - Clarification of border controls after 1 July 2022

Wed. 4 May 2022
As advised last week, the government has decided not to implement the planned EU import controls on SPS goods in July 2022. Effectively this was the last stage of implementing import frontier controls, with commodity specific measures being implemented in a phased approach up until November 2022 in order to allow Border Control Posts (BCP) to gradually gear up for higher demand. In effect this process has been postponed and DEFRA will review their control regime and set out a revised implementation plan, with a target date for introduction by the end of 2023, in a way that exploits technology and minimises administrative burdens. The Department expects to issue this plan in the Autumn of 2022.
