What is it?

Businesses that wish to export food to countries outside of the European Union will require an export certificate. These certificates verify that the exporting business complies with all relevant legislation.

How do I apply?

The Consulate or Embassy of the importing country will supply you with information relating to the format of the certificate and also provide you with any other requirements needed for import.

Please note it is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the destination country's requirements are met.

After this information has been sought you must contact us with information relating to the export. This information can include:

  • Product
  • Quantity
  • Manufacturer
  • Storage conditions
  • Packaging
  • Consignor
  • Consignee
  • Date of Production/Packing
  • Mode of transport
  • Registration document (for live bivalve molluscs)
