Hi Tim Dobson,

If you are seriously considering exporting chilled meats to France and Spain you will need to first start off by applying for an 'Export Health Certificate' (EHC) which can be accessed from Defra.

If you would require any further assistance with locating possible buyers in EU market, you are welcome to contact me on the details below.

No Export Health Certification paperwork is needed to move products for human consumption within the EU, however, we always advise exporters to check with importing countries to confirm what is needed for your commodity to gain access to the country.

Hi Mr Dobson

We can confirm that Donna Whelan is correct; an Export Health Certificate (EHC) is not required to move goat meat within the EU.

Please follow this link for more information:

We wish you all the best in your endeavours

Best Wishes
