Inconsistent certification requirements for fish exports from the UK to Thailand

in Thailand

Trade barrier summary

The department of fisheries often requires fish exporters to provide multiple documents at the port, despite the legal requirement being just one of the following documents:

- catch certificate
- certificate of origin
- exporting permission
- health certificates

These inconsistent and unpredictable requirements for documentation are challenging for exporters, who may be unable to obtain health and catch certificates.

Sectors affected

  • Agriculture, horticulture, fisheries and pets
