Import of transport boxes for shipment of human tissue samples – Post Brexit

Question: We are a provider of a pathology testing service to the NHS. To provide this service we bring in transport boxes and waybills from the EU (where they are stored) for shipment of the tissue samples to the USA. There is zero cost associated with this item and we pay VAT on each test ordered.

What documentation do we need to ensure that there is expedited transfer across our borders?

Do you need any further information to help answer this?

Answer: Thank you for your question.

We would encourage you to register for DHSC’s Express Freight Service. The Express Freight Service (EFS) supports the provision of alternative routes, away from areas of disruption and has established arrangements with three specialist logistics providers to support the urgent movement within the medicines and medical product supply chain, should existing supply chains encounter difficulties.

To register for the first time, please use this link.

To check a registration using your existing credentials, please use this link.

Unfortunately, as your product is not technically classed as a category 1 good, you will not be able to register for the Government Secured Ferry Capacity as well (under the same link), so please only fill out the form for the EFS.
