Port Health will endorse the declaration indicating whether the goods are acceptable or not.
The Port Health Release notification is accepted by the HMRC National Clearance Hub as evidence that checks have been completed. Otherwise, a copy of this declaration will need to be supplied to Customs as evidence.
On satisfactory completion of the checks, consignments may be released for free circulation into Great Britain.
A legal notice will be served setting out reasons for failure and the options available.
Products failing to satisfy import conditions may be re-exported to a country outside of Great Britain. However, if the consignment is deemed to be a risk to human health, or where the person responsible for the consignment fails to comply with a direction to re-export, it must instead be destroyed under supervision.
Polyamide kitchenware articles may be shredded and melted, and the resulting product formed into articles for purposes other than for food contact (if suitable facilities are available).
All costs for destruction are to be met by the person responsible for the consignment.
