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 the import and export 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, or grain 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.

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 from early 2022.   

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 [].  


Legacy services (PEACH and eDomero): 

If you’re still using PEACH and eDomero here is a reminder of how to register for these services. 

Get to know PEACH fully with the user guide, and these step-by-step videos.
