The Government have issued guidance on How to export fish for human consumption from 1 January 2021 and what documents you may need

To export or move fish to the EU or NI from GB after 1 January 2021, you’ll need to follow the same rules that are currently in place for exports of fish to some non-EU countries. You’ll need to create:

  • an export health certificate, except for direct landings of fresh fish in EU ports from UK-flagged fishing vessels
  • a catch certificate – you need to validate this and send it to your importer
  • You’ll also need to meet health and identification mark requirements.

You may also need:

  • direct landing documents
  • a storage document if your product has been stored
  • a processing statement if your product has been processed
  • You’ll need to follow customs and border inspection requirements.

There will be no new requirements for consignments of fish and fishery products moving from NI to the EU.

There will also be no new requirements for NI businesses moving consignments of fish and fishery products from NI to GB, in line with the UK government’s commitment to unfettered access.

The only extremely limited exceptions apply where goods fall within procedures relating to specific international obligations binding on the UK (like requirements on the trade of endangered species, or the movement of bluefin tuna or Antarctic and Patagonian toothfish).
