On 15th January 2022 changes to the wording within the Export Health Certificate (EHC) will come into force.
This is the paperwork that the exporting abattoirs veterinarian must complete and sign before sheep and cattle carcasses are exported.
The new EHC requires the veterinarian in an exporting abattoir to sign off all consignment stating that
“the animals have originated from establishments that have received regular animal health visits from a veterinarian for the purpose of the detection and signs of disease”.
As such we have updated our cattle entry form and there is now a sheep declaration form that needs to be completed and handed in with the movement licence. These are available on our downloads page.
