Exporting Turmeric/Curcuma from GB to the EU and Northern Ireland
On 20th December the European Commission (EC) announced new import controls on organic turmeric/curcuma exported from GB to the EU and Northern Ireland from 1st January 2023.
These new controls will require certification bodies to:
test 10% of consignments before export
carry out an additional unannounced inspection of each GB exporter
collect additional information on product flows, traceability and financial documentation.
This applies to turmeric/curcuma exported under CN codes 0910 30 00 and 2106 90 92.
We will make an additional charge for any sampling and testing, and for any additional inspections we are obliged to carry out.
We are currently reviewing the detailed requirements issued by the EC and evaluating what additional information we will require from companies exporting turmeric/curcumin and will communicate further details in due course.
In the meantime please inform the COI team at email@example.com if you intend to export these products to the EU or Northern Ireland in 2023.
