Today, Defra has launched IPAFFS; it is now accepting registrations as part of the public beta testing phase. First-time users should register via the GOV.UK start page here.

Our IPAFFS user guidance on has been updated to explain the registration process and helpful ‘how to’ videos published on You Tube – video for registering on IPAFFS as a limited company, as a sole trader, and adding additional users.

The overarching animal imports guidance has also been updated on how to import from the EU after exit with a downloadable import notification form for EU to UK imports now available.

This follows the announcement of the new IPAFFS system in February 2019.
