IT Systems

Plant Health IT Services

Defra and APHA have been working to develop and deliver new IT systems to replace PEACH and eDomero for imports and exports of plants and plant products.   

Plant Health Export Service (PHES)  

Exporters of used farm machinery, plants, plant products and plant produce can now register for the new Plant Health Export Service.

If you export potatoes, seeds, bulbs, grain or if you are part of the PHEATS scheme, you should continue to use eDomero for now, we’ll let you know when you can move to PHES.  

Guidance on how to register and raise an application is available here: https://planthealthportal.defra.gov.uk/eu-exit-guidance/it/plant-health-export-service-guidance   

Import of products, animals, food and feed system (IPAFFS)  

IPAFFS for plants is currently being used by a small number of ‘Early Adopters’ who are testing and feeding back on the service. IPAFFS will be available to all plant importers on a phased basis in Autumn 2021.   

We will let you know when you can register for and start using the new service.    

For more information:

If you have questions or want to know more, please speak to your local plant health and seeds inspector or contact the Defra IT Systems project team [Defra-SPSIT-Plant_comms_enquiries@defra.gov.uk].
