An export certificate is required by food manufacturers or exporters who wish to export food of animal origin to countries outside of the European Community (EC).
These certificates confirm that a specific business complies with all relevant legislation and the food produced is without risk to exports.
Export certificates will only be issued if:
- the business is registered with us
- food hygiene standards are met
- the food is produced or packed in the borough
For more information see the guidance provided on the GOV.UK website.
Applications are normally processed within 5 to 6 working days. If you need advice or help with your application, or information about how to make your payment, please contact the team.
