New procedures

The new procedures aim to improve efficiencies and minimise delays in the clearance of consignments.

The email must contain the following:

  • The subject line must include the importers plant health registration (PHR) number e.g. PHR:0000.
  • The email must include a consignment application form which is correctly completed
    and in excel format. Hand-written consignment application forms will
    not be accepted.
  • The email must include a colour scanned copy of the phytosanitary certificate (where
    required), invoice, customs single administrative document, and the bill of lading (Lift-on Lift-off only).

The process for applying for Colorado Beetle (CB) licences for consignments arriving through Dublin Port only will discontinue from Friday, October 25.
