Since the end of the transition period, EU Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) rules continue to apply in NI under the Northern Ireland Protocol, upholding the longstanding status of the island of Ireland as a single epidemiological unit.
This means that since 1 January 2021, all regulated plants and plant products, including seeds, moving from GB to NI are required to meet the EU’s third country import requirements.
As such, these goods must be accompanied by a Phytosanitary Certificate (PC), in accordance with internationally agreed standards on plant health.
In recognition of these new requirements, the government have put in place a number of temporary operational measures to provide support to individuals and businesses moving goods to NI.
