Forestry Commission Guidance
Plant Passporting for wood, wood products and bark
Since 1 January 2021, EU plant passports have no longer been used in England, Scotland and Wales to export wood, wood products and bark, as they have been replaced by UK plant passports. Find out further details in this factsheet.
Imports of wood, wood products and bark
If you are importing wood, wood products and bark, you will need a Phytosanitary Certificate.
Once your product arrives, it will be inspected at a Place of Destination (PoD). The physical checks forregulated imports have been reduced.
