Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether EU law requires the export of animal-based products from the EU to be via a designated border inspection point; and if will he make a statement.
Animal-based product (POAO) being exported from the EU to a third country is not required to exit the EU via a Border Inspection Post (BIP).
It would only be required to exit via a BIP if it was transiting the EU from and to a Third Country as laid down in Council Directive 97/78/EC.
