Since the UK left the EU, British traders have been required to comply with new customs controls and standards.

For agrifood traders, this has also included new sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) rules, though these have been introduced in phases since the end of the transition period.

If you trade animal-origin or plant-based products with the EU, you need to understand these new measures.

This course covers the new controls and resulting documentary requirements for traders including the Border Target Operating Model, the new government IT systems for SPS goods and tips for compliance with the new rules.
