Fisheries Imports

Consignments of fishery products entering the EU through an Irish Border Control post are subject to SPS Requirements and Controls designed to manage  safety/health/hygiene  risk. These controls, including documentary checks on Health Certificates, are carried out by DAFM officials at those BCPS, and are not under SFPA remit.

However most marine wild-caught fishery product imports are also subject to IUU requirements, and the documentary controls on Catch Certificates and IUU documentationto enable such imports are done by SFPA.
