Find out about new safety and security declarations that will apply from 1 October 2021 on goods leaving Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).


Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) is now no longer part of a safety and security zone with the EU.

Safety and security declarations will now be due from:

  • 1 October 2021 – on goods leaving Great Britain in roll on roll off ( RoRo) vehicles — this also includes empty containers, pallets and vehicles moving to the EU under a transport contract
  • 1 January 2022 – on goods being imported from the EU and other territories to Great Britain that did not require these before 1 January 2021

Some controls have applied since 1 January 2021 and full controls for all goods were due to apply from 1 July 2021.

The government has continued to monitor the impacts that COVID-19 is having on UK business and has decided that some controls will now apply from October 2021, and full controls for all goods will apply from 1 January 2022.
