Non-viable fish and fish products
An electronic health certificate is available in the EXDOC system for the export of certain fish and fish products.
Exporters may request one of the following three templates based on the type of products (Aquaculture/wild caught), transport condition (frozen, chilled or ambient) and mode of transport (air or sea freight):
|FXIN01||Non-viable, aquaculture fish and fish products (excluding crustaceans), exported chilled by airfreight only (e.g. chilled Atlantic Salmon fillets)|
|FXIN02||Non-viable, wild-caught fish and fish products (excluding crustaceans), exported in ambient conditions by seafreight only (e.g. canned products)|
|FXIN03||Non-viable, aquaculture fish and fish products (excluding crustaceans), exported frozen by airfreight only (e.g. frozen Atlantic Salmon fillets)|
For products included in the table above, the request for permit (RFP) process will remain unchanged. The information included in the RFP, once validated, will automatically be used for the issuance of the paper-based health certificate. You will be able to remote print the certificate.
