New rules from 1st January 2022

From 1 January 2022, all POAO (Products of Animal Origin) and ABP (Animal by Products) consignments must be pre-notified on IPAFFS, and all plants and plant products categorised as ‘regulated and notifiable’ will need to be pre-notified on either  IPAFFS or the PEACH system.

To register to use the IPAFFS system traders will need to set up a Government Gateway account and create a Defra account. A training video and guidance on how to create and complete a pre-notification on IPAFFS is available on the Defra microsite.

You must pre-notify your consignment to Defra at least four-hours in advance of arriving into Great Britain. The four-hour requirement will remain in place until 30 June 2022 for POAO/ABP.

From 1 July 2022, the information required for notifying consignments of POAO/ABP will change and additional fields will need to be completed. We will provide you with these details in due course.
