Products of animal origin (POAO)

Goods derived in some form from animals are referred to as products of animal origin (POAO). POAO include certain live animals for human consumption, foodstuffs such as meat, milk, and eggs, and further by-products. When importing POAO from third countries, which will include EU countries as from January 2021, you must generally notify the competent Border Control Post (BCP) at the port or airport ahead of the arrival of your goods. For imports from EU countries, the requirement for pre-notification and health documentation for POAO will apply as from April 2021.
