BTOM Changes For Food & Irish Procedures Now Live

In August‌‌‌ ‌‌last year, the government published their final version of the Border Target Operating Model (BTOM) which confirmed that from 31‌‌‌st ‌‌January 2024 there would be significant changes to importing animal and food products, along with changes to procedures affecting Ireland and Northern Ireland. These changes have now started.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) recently sent out a guide to the implementation process of the new BTOM, which includes new regulations for animal and food products, including health certification requirements, and their new approach to Sanitary and Phytosanitary controls, and Safety and Security controls.

The implementation announcement can be found HERE.

Additionally, HMRC distributed an announcement about new BTOM processes for imported goods directly from Ireland into Great Britain, and moving goods from Northern Ireland to Great Britain through Irish ports.

The Irish announcement can be found HERE.
