If you export meat, dairy, fish, other products of animal origin or germplasm to Europe, it is likely that all your consignments will need to be checked and certified by an Official Veterinarian from 1st January 2021.

Many businesses are unaware of the possible new rule that export certification will be required for all animal products going to EU coIoana Dobre, Business Development Manager Eville & Jones,untries.

It is set to be one of the most seismic trade changes in the last 48 years as a smooth freedom of movement to and from member nations ends. Hit particularly hard will be companies who have never had to secure disease-free certification from an OV before and are entirely unfamiliar with the process.

Those who are unprepared are set to suffer major supply change disruption and loss of competitive advantage.

With over 700 Official Veterinarians, Meat Inspectors, and Certification Support Officers throughout England and Wales, Eville & Jones has unrivalled size, agility and expertise to manage your export certification needs at a competitive price, without fuss or stress.

From global household names to local exporters, Eville & Jones provides all businesses with specialist veterinary and technical expertise 24/7, to ensure their shipments are fully compliant. We then issue an Export Health Certificate (EHC) for each load that verifies its origin, content and hygiene.

We are trusted by more than 100 exporters with all their consignments and are long-experienced with integrating checking and certification processes seamlessly into the supply chain, ensuring that loads can be dispatched to the tightest of schedules.

And while no other UK company has a qualified, specialist talent pool as large or as expert as ours, our recruitment and resourcing operation has already geared up to cope with the expected increase in export certification demand.

Eville & Jones is also providing a free EHC preparedness check for exporters in the run-up to 1st January, which explains the new requirements and your new responsibilities in simple terms – and how we can support you.
