IPAFF's to replace TRACES in event of 'No Deal' Brexit
If the UK exits the EU without a deal, from 11pm GMT on 12 April 2019, we will no longer be able to use the EU’s TRACES (Trade Control and Expert System) to certify UK imports from outside the EEA countries.
The replacement system, the Import of Products, Animals, Food and Feed System (IPAFFS) will be used instead.
IPAFFS is a web-based service for the application for, and issuing of, Common Veterinary Entry Documents (CVEDs) for imports from outside the EU of live animals, their products and germplasm. IPAFFS is the system used for notifying UK authorities of movements of live animals, germplasm and certain other commodities into to the UK from Third Countries.
