Since January 1st, UK authorities have been operating an informal transition period for compliance with UK labelling requirements. Strictly speaking, all food and feed products entering the UK should have a UK compliant label showing the name address of the third country representative (TCR). The TCR must be a UK based company with a GB Feed Hygiene number and must be authorised to sell and distribute food or feed products.
For the past six months, the requirement for a UK label has been informally waived, provided there is a valid EU label. However, the UK competent authority (Trading Standards) has informed XL Ingredients that the labelling requirements will start to be enforced, possibly from July. Enforcement will occur when the goods clear customs and when the goods are placed on the internal UK market. All feed and food products/ingredients will require a UK compliant label showing the name and address of the UK third country representative.
Bottom line: Goods entering the UK with an EU compliant label will need an additional label showing the name and address of the UK representative who is legally responsible for the product.
