A few weeks ago, the no-deal Brexit guidance for animal importers and exporters was released and the government trialled the launch of the new UK import notification system – IPAFFS.
On 18 March 2019, IPAFFS was launched. It is now accepting registrations as part of the public beta testing phase. First-time users should register via the gov.uk start page.
The IPAFFS user guidance on gov.uk has been updated to explain the registration process and helpful “how to” videos have been published on YouTube. These include a video for registering on IPAFFS as a limited company, as a sole trader and adding additional users.
Businesses have been emailed with extra detailed guidance on IPAFFS and invited to a series of web-based workshops.
