Imports and exports

When importing food, you need to know about regulations that apply to specific products and more general rules concerning labelling and additives. Access to data and intelligence on imported food is also available on the Imports Intelligence Hub.

The UK government has introduced the next phase of import controls for food and feed products imported into the UK. Products of animal origin which present as ‘medium’ risk to UK biosecurity will now undergo 100% documentary and risk-based identity and physical checks at the border.  Find out more here:

Border Target Operating Model (BTOM) 

More information about the BTOM and importing products of animal origin to Great Britain from the EU and EFTA can be found on GOV.UK:
