Fruit and vegetables grown in the EU and imported from the EU to Great Britain do not need to go through marketing standards controls or plant health controls.
Marketing standards controls for fruit and vegetables imported from the EU are not expected to be introduced before at least 1 February 2025.
Further assessment of fruit and vegetables for plant health risk is ongoing, and risk categorisations may change. However, any changes to plant health controls for fruit and vegetables imported from the EU will not be introduced before 30 April 2024.
