answer text <p>There will be no change to the cost to the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) for taking on the regulatory functions currently undertaken by the EU. This is due to the VMD being a full cost recovery agency and these regulatory functions are paid for by the veterinary pharmaceutical industry through the charges made on applications submitted.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>We recognise there will be an increased demand for Export Health Certificates (EHCs) in the event the UK leaves the EU without a deal.</p><p> </p><p>Our aim has been to support the market in meeting likely demand by increasing the number of trained Official Veterinarians (OVs) by providing free certification training.</p><p> </p><p>The number of trained OVs has increased from around 600 in February 2019 to more than 1000 currently, there are around 250 who have registered but not yet completed this training. We have been contacting this group, encouraging them to complete the training as soon as possible.</p><p> </p><p>In Great Britain, OVs operate in the private sector and over time we would expect the market to match supply and demand. Understanding what this means for certifying capacity is difficult as we cannot know how many hours a week these OVs will spend on certifying exports and to what extent their availability will respond to price incentives.</p><p> </p><p>To support Local Authority Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) and Official Veterinarians, we have created a Certification Support Officer (CSO) role and funded training. CSOs will handle a number of preparatory and administrative aspects of EHCs (checking documents, identifying products or sealing containers), freeing up EHO or OV time and capacity to provide the final assurance required. To date, in GB, we have 70 authorised CSOs.</p><p> </p><p>EHCs for fish and fish products are primarily certified by Local Authority EHOs and OVs mainly certify EHCs for Animals and Products of Animal Origin (POAO).</p>

answer text <p>The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) permit system allows trade in hunting trophies of listed species, from any country party to CITES, only when it is satisfied that the export will not be harmful to the survival of the species. Import suspensions are in place for countries where hunting of certain species is considered unsustainable.</p> more like this
