EXPORT TAGGING REQUIREMENTS – 01/01/21

Exporting or moving GB livestock to the EU or Northern Ireland from 1 January 2021

How your livestock intended for EU export need to be identified from 2021

From 1 January 2021 the UK will trade with the EU as a third country.  New rules for entry into the EU of certain animals and products from third countries including livestock will apply in 2021. Under the Northern Ireland Protocol of the EU Withdrawal Agreement, the same requirements will apply for these live animal movements from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

This means that we will have to use a two-letter ISO[1] country code ‘GB’ to identify livestock exported to EU Member States or moved to Northern Ireland.

The UK currently uses the identifier UK in accordance with EU rules for Member States. From 2021, we will need to include a visual identifier which displays GB for animals intended for exported or moved to the EU or moved to Northern Ireland.

The following paragraphs explain the export tagging options for different species and would also apply when tagging animals for movement to Northern Ireland.

You should confirm with the importer that your exported animals are identified by an acceptable method.
