From January 1, 2021, used machinery and vehicles used for agricultural and forestry purposes are classified as Regulated Plants and Plant Products and for export to European Union countries they will need prior declaration and a phytosanitary certificate (PC) for transport from the UK to the European Union, including with Northern Ireland.
The date of inspection and issue of the certificate may not be earlier than 14 days before the date of dispatch of the relevant material to which the certificate relates. „Shipped” date = the day the goods were exported from the country of issue of the certificate.
The length of time the goods remain in transit does not affect the validity of the certificate.
As soil is classified as a high risk crop product and is banned, used agricultural and forestry machinery must be cleared of soil from 1 January 2021.
