Defra have issued updated guidance on triangular trade of products of animal origin (POAO) and STAMNI.
Triangular trade is when a product is imported from one country into Great Britain and then re-exported to another.
This latest version updates the March 2022 guidance and articulates the EU’s current interpretation of the rules around this type of movement, given the risk of refusal of consignments at EU Border Control Posts (BCPs).
The UK is seeking to raise this issue at the Trade and Cooperation Agreement’s SPS Trade Specialised Committee for an explanation of how this interpretation is consistent with obligations under the TCA.
