Goods subject to Article 73 of the retained Plant Health Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/2031) and detailed in Annex 11, Part B of the retained Phytosanitary Conditions Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/2072)
Pre-notification of Goods detailed in Article 73 of the retained Plant Health Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/2031). Language(s): English. Number of pages: 1
This instrument uses a power in the retained Regulation (EU) 2017/625 ("the Official Controls Regulation") to make regulations requiring the pre‑notification of goods detailed in Article 73 ("Article 73 goods") of the retained Plant Health Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/2031), entering England, Scotland and Wales (Great Britain). Such a requirement will apply to 1% of imports of Article 73 goods, selected for phytosanitary import checks, from all countries. Please see section 3 for a link to the list of Article 73 goods.
This measure will provide information on the movement of these goods, which will allow for better targeting of inspections, to determine whether they present a biosecurity risk. All other regulated plant and plant product commodities need to be pre-notified before arriving in Great Britain.
The notified document ("Article 73 pre-notification") sets out the legal basis for implementing this measure in GB legislation. As a draft of the legislation is not yet available, we are using this document to notify WTO Members of our intention.
