FPC Guide to Importing Fresh Produce into the UK

30 January 2017

FPC has published its latest edition of the FPC Guide to Importing Fresh Produce into the UK.

The guide is free to FPC members and is available to download from the publications section of the FPC website here. 

The Guide provides information on:

  • Customs procedures and duty payments
  • Plant health requirements for imports
  • Marketing requirements for imports.

A series of annexes give further information on: online tariff, duty rates and tariff quotas; commodity codes for cut flowers, vegetables and fruit; designated points of entry for plant health controlled plants and plant products; and changes in levels of import inspections from 1 January 2017.

Many of the regulations for importing fresh produce into the UK are set by the European Union. During negotiations under Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union, EU law will continue to apply to the UK. If no agreement is reached within two years of formal notification to leave by the UK then the UK would leave the EU with no new agreement in place.

FPC is lobbying the UK Government on behalf of members to ensure that the UK fresh produce industry continues to trade effectively following the UK decision to leave the European Union.
