As we advised in the Weekly on 5th May, the Government have announced they have delayed further import controls on POAO and High-Risk Goods that are imported from the EU.
It was planned that S.P.S checks would be introduced on a staged basis from 1st July.
Defra have now advised us on several calls that they will design a new process with three key strands:
- It will be digitised
- It will be simplified
- It will be proportionate
They have also said they are keen to engage with industry as they design this new process. Therefore, we are inviting members to contact us to discuss if they would like to engage directly with Defra or be part of a group of BFFF members that feed information into Defra via the BFFF,
Please can you contact Holly Jones if you want to be part of this consultation process.
