Latest Equine Movement News from the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA)
 
The UK’s listed status application has been agreed by European Union (EU) Member States after it met the animal health and biosecurity assurances required for a third country to export live animals and animal products.
 
This means the movement of equines between the UK and the EU will now continue in the event of a no-deal exit from the EU on April 12.
 
The UK has been placed in Sanitary Group A for the export of equines by the Commission. This means testing and isolation requirements for equines ahead of export will be the minimum possible as a third country.
 
To help you advise your clients, updated guidance on the movement of equines has been published on Gov.uk, providing specific advice on what this decision means. General advice on importing and exporting live animals has also been updated.
