Liverpool Seaforth port will be designated as a Point of Entry and Exit (PoE) for CITES- listed specimens at the end of the Transition Period.

We will continue to work with port operators, industry and other Government departments such as Border Force, HM Revenue & Customs and Cabinet Office to analyse trade flows and will designate further PoE where this is feasible so as to provide additional routes for traders.
