You must include a completed export health certificate (EHC) for each type of animal or animal product you export from the UK to a non-EU country.
An EHC is an official document that confirms your export meets the health requirements of the destination country.
If you’re exporting a consignment which includes a mix of products, you’ll need an EHC for each product type.
Once you have identified the EHC then contact us where we will review your requirements and advice you to name us as your OV.
