Inward Processing - conditions and requirements: Main Processed Products (MPPs)

If an authorisation is granted it is issued on the basis of specific goods being entered to IP for a specified processing operation. The goods produced as a result of that processing operation are ‘processed products’. Relief can only be claimed for those processed products that will be re-exported from the EU or put to a disposal that discharges IP. These should be identified as the main processed products (MPPs).

The trade and technical description of the MPP should always be in sufficient detail to clearly identify them.

Where different goods and different processes are involved, the application must show clearly which goods are to being used to produce which products and how the goods entered to IP are identified in each product.

Relief is only granted for the quantity of goods entered to IP that are in any MPPs re-exported or put to an eligible disposal, this will need to be identified when the rate of yield is set.
