Animal By-Product Licencing

Establishments that receive, handle and use samples of animal products for research and development purposes are required to be registered operators and must abide by all relevant requirements detailed in European Union (Animal By-Products) Regulations 2014 (SI No 186 of 2014) and EU Legislation Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 and Commission Regulation (EU) No 142/2011.

If you intend to Import animal by-products materials for commercial use then you will require an Authorisation to Present Consignment(s) for Re-Import. The VET 14 application form applies and licences can be issued for individual or multiple imports. Alternatively, if the originating manufacturing plant is registered with the EU, a Chapter 20 Declaration and Commercial Document can be used in lieu of an import licence. 

If you intend to re-import a consignment falling within the Animal By-Products Licencing legislation you will require an Authorisation to Present Consignment(s) for Re-Import. The VET 14 application form applies and licences can be issued for individual or multiple imports.

All imports of Animal By-Products must be presented to a Border Inspection Post (BIP) within the EU.

We can assist you in deciding which licence is appropriate, submit the licence application and deal with the various licencing bodies on your behalf.
