Defra has an extensive programme of work focused on preparing for a range of scenarios to make sure we are ready for the point when the UK leaves the EU. This includes ensuring there is a system which will enable the tracking of all movements of animals transported from EU member states to the UK and from the UK to EU member states. The precise nature of our future relationship with the EU is still to be determined and is the subject of negotiation.
