When importing goods into the UK that fall under one of the following categories, a notification must be sent to UK authorities via IPAFFS – the Import of Products, Animals, Food and Feed System:

  • Live animals
  • Germinal products
  • Animal by-products (ABP)
  • High-risk food and feed not of animal origin (HRFNAO)
  • Products of animal origin (POAO)
  • Composite food products
  • Medium and high-risk plants and plant products

As an Import Agent, we can manage IPAFFS notifications on your behalf.
