Licenses for imports, transit, exports and intra-Community movements of animals and animal products in accordance with animal health regulations
Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)
You require a permit for the import, transit and, in individual cases, export and intra-Community movements of animals and animal products in accordance with Section 1 of the Ordinance on the Protection of the Internal Market against Epizootic Diseases (BmTierSSchV) and of goods that may be carriers of infectious agents.
This does not apply to animals and goods originating in a third country that are accompanied by a certificate and for which no permit is required.
A permit may not be issued if there is a risk of spreading animal diseases.
Products and products that can be confused with foodstuffs that do not comply with the laws applicable in Germany, with the exception of
- foodstuffs intended exclusively for scientific purposes, for trade fairs, exhibitions or similar events, or
- food samples and specimens in small quantities,
may not be brought into the country. Their transit requires customs supervision.
Who should I contact?
To the veterinary office (official veterinarian) of the district or independent city.
All imports from third countries must pass through a veterinary border inspection post on first contact with an EU country.
The official veterinarian will refer you to the responsible Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Areas, Europe and Consumer Protection (MLLEV) if permits are required.
Which documents are required?
As certificates must be submitted in some cases, it is recommended that you contact the responsible office in advance.
What are the fees?
The permit is subject to a fee. The fees are determined by the respective cost or fee schedule. Information on this can be obtained from the official veterinarian or the MELUR.
What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?
No deadlines need to be observed for the application itself.
When handling trade, for example the transportation of livestock, there may be official obligations to notify the partner veterinary authorities in other EU Member States, which the official veterinarian will provide information on.
Applications / forms
Applications can be submitted informally in writing, by fax or email.
What else should I know?
Many trade and travel issues affecting livestock and pets are subject to constant changes due to changing animal disease situations worldwide, so it is recommended that you obtain detailed information from your local official veterinarian in advance.
Further information can be found on the websites of the state government of Schleswig-Holstein and the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL).
