Imports (intra-community trade)
Rules regarding the identification of imported sheep and goats.
Animals brought in from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
If you bring sheep or goats into Wales from England, Scotland or Northern Ireland, they must be identified in line with the law in the countries they are moving from.
When animals arrive at your holding, you must record the details of the move in your holding register, either individually or on a batch basis.
When you receive animals, you should fill in the relevant part of the movement document that arrives with the animals and return it to your local authority. This should be done within three days of the move taking place.
Animals arriving from Northern Ireland will have a health certificate, which should be retained with your records.
You must also fill in the movement document and return it to your local authority within three days of the animals arriving at your holding.
When you move these animals off your holding you must follow rules for moves within Wales. So you must:
- record the movement (either individually or on a batch basis) in your holding register
- and fill in a movement document.
Animals Imported from other European Union (EU) countries
Sheep and goats imported from other EU countries must be double identified (animals born before 31 December 2009) or full EID identified.
When animals arrive at your holding,
- fill in the Movements section of the flock/herd record. Record the date the animal was moved onto you holding.
- You must do this within 36 hours of their arrival.
Animals arriving from the EU will have an export health certificate which should be retained with your records. You must:
- Fill in all sections of the movement document, including the address where the animals have moved from (section 1, departure address) and
- Send a copy to your local authority.

10.12 Animals imported from countries outside the EU
If you are the first keeper to receive animals being imported from outside the EU, you must tag the animals with red replacement Full EID. You must do this within 14 days of them arriving and before they leave the holding if this is earlier.
When animals arrive at your holding, you must do the following:
- In the Movements section of the holding register, record the date the animal was moved onto your holding. You must do this within 36 hours of their arrival.
- In the Replacement section of your holding register, cross-reference the animal’s full identification number on the UK red tags with the animals’ existing identification number from the country it came from.
If the original identifier, applied at the holding the animal has come from, is subsequently lost, it does not have to be replaced.
You must fill in all sections of the movement document and send a copy to your local authority within three days of the animals arriving on your holding. You must also inform the local authority at which port the animals entered the UK at (section 1, the CPH box) and the address the animals have moved from (section 1, departure address).
