GB/EU jigsaw to show customs clearance

Defra is pleased to confirm that a GB Certificate of Inspection (COI) will not be required on certified organic produce entering GB from the EU and certain other countries from 1 January 2021.  These will be required later in 2021.  Please see the detail below:

This is a significant change and we decided to waive this requirement to reduce the risk of delays at the ports and resultant spoiled food. This decision is in line with a number of other phased approaches designed to simplify import procedures in the short term.
