If you export SPS goods from Ireland to Great Britain you will need to be pre – notified on the UK’s SPS Import System IPAFFS  – learn more here.

For exporters of SPS category products (this covers live animals, plants & plant products, products of animal origin, and food of non-animal origin) you can read Irish Revenue information here.

Below you can read more about the requirements, and we enclose some useful UK Government links.

Irish exporters will be familiar with this requirement, but we are reminding them of the deadline which is very soon. We are sharing this with our UK customers just for information purposes.
