Documents

Details

If you want to export animals and animal products from the UK, you need to make arrangements for someone to sign an export health certificate (EHC) for your type of consignment.

This will be an official vet or sometimes a local authority food competent certifying officer. They will check your consignment meets the health requirements of the destination country.

There’s no fee for the certificate but you will usually be charged for the certifier’s time.

You can use this list to help you find a veterinary business or local authority that has certifiers permitted to certify your consignment. You must check with them that they are registered to use EHC Online. They will not be able to issue the majority of certificates until they have done so.

The list does not include every certifier in England, Scotland and Wales, and not every certifier will be able to certify every consignment. If you cannot find what you need, email CSCOneHealthOVTeam@apha.gov.uk.

If you are a pet owner taking your pet abroad, speak to your vet. This list does not cover vets who issue pet travel documents.

If your organisation offers export certification and you want to be added to the list, email CSCOneHealthOVTeam@apha.gov.uk.

If you are in Northern Ireland, contact DAERA.
