DFDS Update - Border Target Operating Model

Please be reminded that the border target operating model will implement controls through three major milestones. With January 31st approaching, we encourage you to make sure your business is prepared.

31 January 2024: The introduction of health certification on imports of medium risk animal products, plants, plant products and high-risk food (and feed) of non-animal origin from the EU

30 April 2024: The introduction of documentary and risk-based identity and physical checks on medium risk animal products, plants, plant products and high-risk food (and feed) of non-animal origin from the EU

31 October 2024: Safety and security declarations for EU imports will come into force from 31 October 2024. Alongside this, HM Government will introduce a reduced dataset for imports and use of the UK single trade window will remove duplication where possible across different pre-arrival datasets.
